What I did last weekend :D

I have a very good entry today :D

I did so many things during the long holiday I must say...

First I made this dress for Nasya. Using the red peacock fabric. Its Jennifer Paganelli's Mod Girls Peacock fabric. The one I made for Itty Bitti dress, remember? So I use the same fabric to make this dress.

Guess what?Its the same design as Nasya's birthday dress..Since the fabric has vertical designs, so I cut the pattern nicely so that the peacock will stands in the middle. She's going to wear this tomorrow at school.

Last time when she wore the green birthday dress, I think the teachers asked her, who bought it?Because after school she asked me, "Who bought this dress? You or daddy?" So I said, I didn't buy, I sew it. This time around I told her, if the teachers asked, tell them, I sew it! :D



Second, I made another dress is basically A line dress. This was suppose to be the birthday dress, but I messed it. Badly.

Why? Because first I cut didn't cut the the fabric nicely. And the peacock lost its head at the bottom right of the dress. Grrr...

Then, the neckline. Its not supposed to be like that. But because I did it badly, which I didnt even dare to take picture, so I end up using the bias tape. The normal boring bias tape..See, how lazy I am? Haha

This is suppose to be the neckline. Nice eh?But mine is not that neat. And I hate that.


The last thing is ...the best thing. The icing of the cake :D

Remember I'm in the process of doing my daughter's quilt? And I did ask in the previous entry whether I can pre-wash the batting or not?

So I WASHED it. And machine washed some more. And tadaaa....It turned out to be like hancur. Totally need to be throwed out and my husband cant stop laughing. He said how come I cannot think? I said I think and I cannot imagine it can turn out to be like that. Double grrrrrrrr...


So that was the news of the long holiday. And actually I got some more, but I will save it for another entry.

xoxo :D

the dresses are pretty, i'm sure Nasya loves wearing whatever you make her no matter how they turn out, right? (I make my girl wear all the wonky stuff i try to refashion - and she never complains, poor girl..heheh)

As for the batting, mmm well.. lesson learned, you'll do better next time.. (hope the batting was not so expensive!!)

cantik the dresses, tak nampak messed up pun elok je you cover mai :)

alamak, is that 100% cotton batting? naper hancur ek, coz i read somewhere over-the-sea makcik2 saleh memang prewash dulu, ke derang rendam je? since i did not prewash mine risau lak takut kalau basuh mesin my baby quilt tu hancur kat dalam...i guess basuh tangan je lah kot ya? takpe mai, kita sama-sama belajar :)

jannah : tu la pakai mesin. sbb pikir if handwash, mcmna plak nak shrink sbb auntie tu kata nnti lepas basuh ada shrink sket.

sue mybotang : ha nasya suka semua baju, tp kalau seksi sgt, dia ckp malu :p hahaha batting is 36 plus for 1.2 m. kira oklah.BIG lesson lah haha

maya : leh buat utk melly lah. baju dlm mag tu belah luar mcmtu, mmg mmcm baju kurung kan, cuma dia berombak2..if only i ada rolling hem foot, mesti ok. sebab i buat kasar giler jahit, pastu nak cepat, jadik disaster..

ok sila jgn basuh - machine wash batting kekekeke

zura : haa tu la pastu cover baik punya. tp takder la rupa dlm buku.

haa thats the 100% cotton batting. tula i tak tau apa maksud prewash tu. dahla i wash mmg itu jek sekeping.keluar jadik berkecai2. lawak campur sedih betul.

i wonder gak, if dah quiltkan mcmna pulak eh?

suka tgk baju u jahit, u pandai main dengan pattern kain. i tak pernah lagi try jahit kain ada kaki sebab takut tak jadik comel.

and betul, walo buruk mcmana pon itu baju dijahit, si kecik tak komplen langsung. heheheh

mai, to me ur version is better. the one in the picture cam serabut ah utk budak kecik. tak ke?

okinokiyo said...

neeza : ohh masa i beli kain peacock tu i xperasan dia ada kaki..pastu tgk2 lahh pattern berdiri2 ni mmg banyaklah makan kain..so layan sajerr haha

zam : haa my version with that collar mcm messy sbb jahit tak kemas plus mcm serabut mata memandang..so i buang that colar...
