When I’m not sewing, I waste spend my time daydreaming about my next sewing projects. I have these flowy silk fabrics in my stash for a while and have been thinking what I would make them into. One is black with colorful bird print, the same print as this Marc Jacobs wrap dress, and the other has pinkish nude base with black heart print, the same as this Juicy Couture dress. I didn’t want to make copies of those dresses though, instead I’m planning to use Vogue 8787 for the bird print and Vogue 1288 for the heart print, both are Vogue 2012 […]

My most favorite dress at the moment! The pattern is Cambie by Tasia at Sewaholic. This pattern confirmed my love for Tasia’s patterns, they don’t require too much alteration and the results are always flattering on me. I made the dress in size 2, and my pattern alterations are: shortened the bodice 3 cm. swayback alteration shortened the skirt changed the sweetheart neckline to straight neckline, following Tasia’s tutorial here. I also tucked the center front a bit to prevent gaping neckline as most of my dresses tend to have this problem. The fabric is medium-weight kimono fabric by […]
Actually I’ve finished this top sometime ago before we moved to this house, but haven’t got time to take proper pictures. I’m still looking for a nice spot for taking pictures, I kinda miss the blank wall in my old apartment. The pattern is Banksia top by Megan Nielsen. From the pattern envelope: “Semi fitted with button up placket front, and large peter pan collar it also features elbow length sleeves and shaping darts at the bust line. Pattern includes two different placket finishes based on skill level.” It was my first time sewing a button placket like this, […]
A little sewing project that I did yesterday, my instant gratification! Of course it was a new set of bra and two panties. This time I didn’t used my usual Pin-Up Girls pattern, but Merckwaerdigh PBH30. The pattern is for push-up underwired bra, bustier, bodysuit, and thong bodysuit. I’ve used the pattern before to make this blue bodysuit. I made a little alteration to the bridge between the bra cups. They were a bit too wide on me so I simply shaved both sides a little bit to narrow it. The fabric was 4 m of red stretch lace from Merckwaerdigh […]

About a month ago, I was contacted by Swarovski to check out their magazine: Create Your Style, Issue Sound. The magazine is of course about the famous Swarovski crystals, but that is not all.

Thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post! I’ve been really enjoying the house and spending time doing things around the house that I no longer spent lots of my time in front of the computer or sewing machine. It’s quite a rare thing in my life! I’m not quite sure if that is a good thing for this blog though (-_-). But I slowly got into my sewing mood and finished my first project in the new house! Sidra had been asking for a pair of knee-length pants now that the weather is getting warmer. The […]
