Raisya Arianna.

I feel so blessed having you as my daughter. I always wanted a girl as my first. When my hubs and I were at the gynae's office to find out the sex of the baby and found out it was a girl, I was so happy. Tears rundown my face. Allah answered my prayers. My hubs was actually hoping for a boy but he was okay as long as the baby is healthy. There are many reasons to be happy for having a girl. I absolutely cannot imagine not ever having a daughter. That was literally all I longed for in life and I was so thankful to Allah for that. 

Mother of girl, do you feel the same as I am?

Ikea Sewing Shop Showroom

Really liking this sewing space (sans sewing machine) in Ikea. I think this is the first time Ikea featured such space in their showing room. 

Sample Tunic Dress

I'm on my block leave starting 19-23 December. I'm really looking forward for a long leave like this to catch up with my overdue sewing projects. But, that's not the case. Too many family matters to attend to. 

On Monday, I managed to sew one sample tunic dress for Raisya. 

I called it sample dress because I sew it using remnant fabric that I had (the same fabric as Arianna Dress that I posted a while ago).

I wanted to make sure that the sizing is correct before I can cut my cute (and expensive) stash of fabrics. I just need to tweak a little bit on the neck, button back closure and embellishment on the front dress. The rest is just perfect.

Sample dress in action. Loving our shoes. :)
