Red lace set

Red lace set

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 thisContinue Reading →

Pink Pendrell and Zebra print Kasia

Pink Pendrell and Zebra print Kasia

  The sun is shining today so I can take some pictures of my recent sewing. Here’s another combo of  Kasia and Pendrell that I finished a couple of days ago. When I made this Kasia skirt for me, I wasn’t quite sure if I would be wearing it often. Turned out that the skirt has become one of myContinue Reading →

Pistachio green coat (Burdastyle Sewing Handbook)

Pistachio green coat (Burdastyle Sewing Handbook)

  I’ve always wanted to try making a coat for myself but somewhat scared of it. When I found out that there is a coat pattern in The Burdastyle Sewing Handbook, I knew that it was time to face my fear! I went to Yuzawaya and got myself some pistachio green tweed wool and liningContinue Reading →

The Burdastyle Sewing Handbook!

It finally arrived! It has been more than a year since I sent the blouse variations that I made for the book, and it is kind of strange to finally see it worn by a model in this  beautiful pattern book. I’m so excited!Continue Reading →

Two Pendrells and One Kasia

  Lately I’ve been expanding my wardrobe with more skirts and tops. I have lots of dresses already, and I feel that I need to introduce something different to my wardrobe. My style always changes subtly from time to time, otherwise I will get bored of myself! I bought Pendrell blouse pattern by Tasia fromContinue Reading →

Corduroy skirt

  I still have leftover corduroy fabric from Sidra’s Henry shirt, which is just enough for a little skirt for myself. Although it looks purple in the pictures, the fabric actually has more blue in real life.  The pattern is 10/2010 Wool Skirt #115A by Burdastyle. The smallest size is still too big for me, so IContinue Reading →

Button-up skirt

  A quick project that I did yesterday. The fabric is called ‘lurik’, a traditional handloom from Central Java, Indonesia, that I bought in our summer vacation. Lurik usually has bold stripes pattern and mostly used for a certain type of male clothing called ‘surjan’ like the one Sidra wore in this picture. The oneContinue Reading →

Bombshell dress – cup alteration

This is the backside of my muslin. I have scoliosis and my curved spine can be seen clearly here. This might be the first time I ever photographed my backside deliberately. The last time I saw pictures of my backside is when I was 15 years old. They were laid on the table in frontContinue Reading →

Starting the bombshell dress

Apparently the repair was faster than expected, the repair shop sent my sewing machine back yesterday! The big box arrived in the morning and I danced happily all day. No more machineless week! I used it right away to finish my husband’s jeans. They only need to be hemmed now and I’m waiting for my husbandContinue Reading →

Green Bathing Suit

Green Bathing Suit

So one day I thought that I should try making my own swimsuit. I can’t swim (seriously!), but I do enjoy playing in water and having some good time at the beach. All I have is a set of bikini I bought several years ago and maybe that is more than enough. But making swimsuitContinue Reading →
