Hello hello hello! I don’t consider myself a blogger because I am so horrible at it. Anyway, below are just updates. I am moving next weekend! On that same Saturday, it’ll be my first craft show with my sister! more stress than excitement though because I haven’t made anything! I hope things go well.? :D
This morning I got an update on my fabric printing. Hopefully I receive it by end of May since printing is actually not done yet and it is being ship from China. Super excited!

Just some updates and photos…

I was way overdue to make my sister in law a tea length skirt. Last week I finally made her one! This skirt is also posted on my etsy shop for ordering.

I received my cotton fabric I purchased from spoonflower.com over the weekend. I haven’t really thought much about what to make. I made a high neck scoop top because I like it high. I have no clue what kind of bottom to add onto the top.

This fabric has been sitting around since Fresno New Year 2013, which is 4.5 months ago. I guess it hasn’t been that long compared to the other fabrics I have from who knows when. I really like this green and silver floral chiffon fabric, but the quality is not that great. The silver flowers are metallic and looks like it’s heat pressed onto the fabric. It makes the fabric kind of wrinkly and doesn’t hang too well if you look closely. There is a “new” fabric very similar to this one, but the flowers are gold/bronze and silver. The quality is a lot better, but I don’t like it as much because the green is not as bold as this “older” one. I think it’s fairly hard to find this “older” one and when I saw it at Fresno New Year, I had to get it. I’m glad I’m finally using my fabrics, but there are sooo many other errands I need to get done. I need to get my priorities straight!

Last batch of photos of fabrics I bought in CA. Finally bought the green floral fabrics I’ve been waiting for my sister to get me. Unfortunately, the vendor only has 5 yards left. I was super excited to find the fabric for the hmong skirt; I’ve been looking for a very long time and mission accomplished! :D

Colorful Chiffon Dress

May 24, 2012

Another dress for my youngest sister. Still need to finish the hem. This dress is a pull over dress; no zippers. It’s made out of chiffon. She wanted sleeves, but I totally forgot and finished the arm-hole already. I pinned the sleeves on one side to see how it’ll look like and I like it better with it. I think I’ll attach the sleeves tonight.
