White Lace Pintuck Dress

April 29, 2012

This dress was gone from my Etsy shop for a while. I finally bought more fabric today and it’s up for sale again. I increased the price for this dress and will do the same on the other items later in the year.

I need a major cleanup on my fabrics and that means making random one of a kind dresses?…

Black and Gold Dress

April 29, 2012

Seems like it’s been a long time since I posted something I made so I decided to make a dress and post it up. I spent the day fabric shopping, found a bunch of fabrics I like, but nothing I had to have so I just used whatever fabric I had on hand. I like sewing basic silhouette dresses because it’s versatile. The type of fabric or accessories can turn it into an everyday dress or a formal dress. This silhouette is very basic but because it’s made out of brocade, it’s great for a special occasion. If it was made out of cotton or polyester, it’ll be more of a spring/summer dress.

I don’t think I’ll be posting this dress on my etsy shop anytime soon. I need to get more of this fabric. I also want to make this dress more Hmong; maybe use a solid color for the dress and add embroidery on the neckline and hem.

Bolero

I’ve been reeaaallllyyyyy lazy lately. Haven’t sewn anything besides these two bolero jackets :(

I need to be more productive, but after work I just don’t feel like doing anything…

I haven’t post this up on my etsy account. If you want this top, msg me via etsy or FB

Hmong Woven Fabric

April 20, 2012

Finally received the Hmong hand woven fabric I ordered on ebay. It seemed forever, but it’s been only 2 or 3 weeks, from Thailand. I’m planning to make mini skirts out of this fabric, but it’s a bit too plain. I’ll have to add some trims.

Keep on hearing about this tumblr blogging site. Trying it out to see if I like it better than wordpress…

Super Happy! I received the trims I order some time ago. What concerns me is the condition of the package when I received it.
