Busy, Busy, Busy Me!

I cannot believe it's already 23rd Dec. No new post for almost 2 weeks. I've been busy with office works that leave me exhausted to update this blog.

I'm just so tired I can't go into sewing these past weeks. But I got a lot of inspirations; from blogger land to shopping malls,for sewing project to home decorations. Stay tuned!

Three Years

Today marks our three years anniversary.  Three years of wedded bliss. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, caring, loving and handsome (ahem) husband in my life. I can't imagine life without you.

I am excited to experience many, many, many more anniversary's in the years to come.

Next year would be our big 1-0 love relationship.  Oh my, 10 years. Dear Mr. Ariff, maybe a second honeymoon would be perfect? *hint*

It is called Petal Top, to me it's PJ's

I bought a book at Kinokuniya, KLCC last week.  It was Emma Hardie's book named making children's cloth. The book was worth every rm. I am so wanna  sew all the clothes and kids accessories in the book.

It came along with a pattern which means 'yay' for me.  No need to draft pattern from old existing cloth as a guide (as i normally did and it works).

First try was this Petal Top, which to me it's a PJ's for Raisya.  It has long sleeve, suitable for night wear.  Raisya doesn't have a sleepwear.  All her sleepwear are normal T-shirt and pant which can be worn during the day. So i consider this as her PJ's.

The fabric for the top is from Fabric Fanatics, which i bought and posted last month.

The legging she's wearing is made from RM5 XL shirt i bought at Carrefour, KD.

Enjoy Raisya's many faces when i asked her to be a model and pose for the camera.

"I am confused with mama.  What is she trying to do?
Asking me to stand on this chair? It's wheely mama!"

"Never mind. I smile. Are you happy?"

"You're happy. I'm not!"

Sorry darling, you're my model forever. Keep smiling!

Is she laughing or crying? Tell me.

Gathered Sash Dress

Phew! Finally, I've finished sewing this dress.  It took me almost a day to finish.  Something went wrong yesterday, I didn't know why. To make the gathered sash itself took me twice of cutting, sewing and pressing. But it's worth every efforts.

This dress is made specially for Raisya to wear on her aunt wedding, a day after this coming Christmas.  It is so-called 'flower girl dress' for Raisya since the wedding theme is purple.

Oh, i almost forgot.  Did you notice anything wrong at the bottom of the dress? Haha.. I dont' want to hem the skirt simply because:

First: I am lazy like that.

Second: I think its kinda short, then I just send finish the seam's edges at a local sewing supplies store here in KD ( so it won't take much fabric rather than hemming)

The fabric i used for the dress is viscose. It's really soft and flowy. I think it's very comfortable to wear all day long. 

Ok guys!  Stay tuned for more new and fun kids clothing as I am working really hard on it. (kids clothing? well, it's actually my daughter's clothing)
