Military Inspired Dress

I bought this shirt at 'uptown kd' for 5 ringgit. It was L in size that would fit normal 7-8 years old kid. I bought it because i love the color and because, hey, its five ringgit 'maybe i can do something with it!'

Then, as i was searching for an idea to refashion it, i found this piece from pumpkin patch.

nautical stripe and denim dress
 and i was like, yep, i can do this. So this morning, i tried it and i was extremely happy when it turned out like this.

With 5 ringgit plus rm1.80 for the button and not to mention daddy's old black shirt, i made this beautiful dress at a fraction of pumpkin patch price. haha, clever. me like it!

scha like it too..

Skirt for Raisya

Today, I made a skirt for Raisya. It is a very simple skirt without elastic waistband.  I used zipper instead.  This is my first time sewing with concealed zipper.  I googled videos on this topic and learned from there.  The result: The zipper was not concealed as i imagined it was. booo....   I need to buy conceal zipper foot pronto!

But, the skirt is still cute especially when cute lil Raisya wearing it. Love.

Love Love Love
See the trimming - so cute, aight!

I wanna bite you!

Vintage Treasure

yep! it is my sweet vintage treasure. i got it from my mom. It is solely and officially mine when i moved to Mentakab in 2005.  My first job was in Mentakab and i had to rent a house alone. So this sweet treasure has been my friend and keep me occupied at night. There was no tv until i can afford to buy one after 3 months of working. very sad, huh?

 I sent her to the 'doctor' in 2007 and its working wonderfully to me until now.  Even when my new baby cannot serve me (to sew with elastic thread), this sweet treasure never failed to serve me and that's why i love it. i will keep you forever, buddy!

the beginning

I have wanted to start a blog on my passion in sewing for ages and decided to go for it.  Here we go (drum-roll), sweetheart studio!.  Its a studio dedicated to show everything sweet and everything i heart.  I'm inspired by sewing/crafting blogger community since the born on my first daughter.  My passion in sewing started during my school days. I still remember the day i cried when my mom could not find me a sewing class when SPM was over.  Luckily we did find the class, even though I managed to learn for about 3 months only before i pursue my studies. I am really thankful to my mom for it.

Now, finding time to do what i heart is crazy.  I am a full time working momma, working in a really stressful industry.  How i wish to be a full time momma to my sweetheart, Raisya Arianna and to have the luxury of time to do the things i heart. Please feel free to peep on my blog and hope you have a good day!
