Floral bomber jacket and knit skirt

Floral bomber jacket and knit skirt

I love my new jacket! The pattern is Rigel bomber by Papercut patterns. The first time I saw it was in Sophie’s blog with her wonderful polkadot version. Since then I couldn’t get rid of the image of my own bomber jacket from my mind. I wanted a bomber jacket, and it had to be inContinue Reading →

Birdie Scout Woven Tee and Corduroy Moss Skirt

Birdie Scout Woven Tee and Corduroy Moss Skirt

After finishing my corset, I yearned for a quick and easy project to refresh myself. Refreshing from one sewing project by making another sewing project? One might wonder if I have no life beside sewing lol. Anyway I was in Okadaya, a fabric store in Shinjuku, to find some corset supplies when I found 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 →

Taffy blouse and Meringue Skirt

  Here’s a couple of projects that I made from Colette Sewing Handbook. I really love this book! I just can’t stop reading it cover to cover. The book has five patterns for size 0-18 in it, but this is not just a pattern book. It covers all the basic knowledge about garment construction with clearContinue 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 →

Three meters of black linen

Three meters of black linen

I found this black linen in Yuzawaya sale last week, it was discounted pretty big so I bought 3 meters of it. I planned to make two pairs of shorts for my husband since the one he’s been using has already ripped at the seams. Actually he doesn’t mind the (big) rip, but it wasn’tContinue Reading →

Floral skirts and dresses

Floral skirts and dresses

I’ve used the Wenlan blouse pattern from Burdastyle to make this bib dress before and really loved the result. This time I use the pattern again to make these floral bib dresses. The fabrics are so pretty with tiny floral patterns on them, they also look and feel like Liberty fabrics. I added a few pleats onContinue Reading →

Easy full skirt (and a little tutorial)

Easy full skirt (and a little tutorial)

This is a super easy skirt I whipped up in literally a few minutes. It is very easy, and I will say it again, very easy! You can make it and you will make it! Err… anyway, the black fabric is Japanese fabric, made of thick cotton with brownish swirly pattern on it. Actually IContinue Reading →
