Neon skirt

Since Sidra entered junior high school, he became very busy with all the school activities. Even on weekends, he often has to go to school for sports practice. I suddenly found myself with lots of free time, so I started taking a couple of jobs recently. One thing that I do is working with a designer…

Plaid shirt and denim skirt

Plaid shirt and denim skirt

Sometimes there’s a project that remain unblogged although it was finished for quite sometime, and the reason is not that I don’t like it. It is because I like it so much that it is either being worn or still in the wash. This shirt is such a project! You might recognize the pattern, The Archer button-up…

Tara top – Style Arc

Tara top – Style Arc

I was waiting for the bus yesterday when it was raining, so I took shelter in a fabric store nearby. Of course it wasn’t the best decision (or maybe the best), because when I got home  there was suddenly some addition to my mound of fabric stash. To somewhat lessen my guilty feeling, I immediately worked on…

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 in…

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 this…

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 my…

Taffy blouse and Meringue Skirt

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 clear…

Two Pendrells and One Kasia

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 from…

Corduroy skirt

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 I…
