Nothing much (on sewing) actually. I only have mood to sew on Sunday, the rest of the holidays was spent loafing around.
A) Ruffle dress for little Zahra
I was so eager to use the bias tape maker so I make this dress. A little tutorial on how to use the bias tape maker is in the next coming post.
OK, I have to admit that I'm not a big fan on bias tape. In fact, I hate the ready-made satin bias tape. My experienced in using the satin bias tape was suck -I'm trying to sew it as piping on my baju kurung and it turn out very ugly (really looks like it has been sewn by an unprofessional sewist: which in fact was true, indeed). So, when I decided to use the bias tape maker and using it on Zahras baju, I have this weird feeling- scared if it turns out ugly yet excited to try new sewing gadget/technique. OK, it still looks unprofessional but I kinda like the experience. I have few other upcoming project using the bias tape maker (don't worry, I'll publish it here once it's done).
B) My maternity top
This is from previous project which I wanted to make myself a long sleeves baju punjabi looks alike, but have been left unattended for quite sometimes- I forgot actually. Just remembered about the unfinished project when I arranging my stash on the new rack I bought. Thus, instead of making baju punjabi looks alike, I made myself another maternity top.
Again, for both baju, I'm not depending on any pattern- just cut the fabric and sew following my gut. And I love the outcomes of my maternity top: am going to make more and more (jika ada masa laa..).
Well, did you notice? Yes, the ruffles- on both baju. Hehehe.. I've just learnt the new technique and now was over excited to make ruffles on each and every baju that I sewn. Hahah..
OK, thats all for now. Hope to sew more in this new year :-)
