Hmong Print Satin Shorts

hmong black white print satin shorts

I ordered this print on spoonflower.com on the polyester satin fabric just to see how it looks and feels like. I didn’t know what to make with it because it’s shiny and I don’t wear anything satin shiny. I literally sat staring at the fabric all night yesterday trying to think of what to make with it. This afternoon, while Mason napped, I decided to make a pair of sleeping shorts. It’s perfect!

I’ve been gone quite a while! I really want to and will try my best to update my projects here more often. It’s just getting harder and harder with a baby, especially now that he wants to be interactive all the time. I moved back to North Carolina after having my baby. We drove across country when he was only 2 weeks old! …and… we are planning to “permanently” move back to California by the end of the year so I am looking forward to buy fabrics in bulk again next year. :D

Below are some of the projects I made. The cross stitch was a bit painful, pushing the dull needle through the interface backing for the onesies. Love every piece.

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!

I really like the crop top with a high waist pants, shorts, or skirt. I might recreate the full skirt to pair it with the top for a photoshoot. Or, maybe I should design a different crop top. We’ll see… I have to finish my orders first though. I AM moving soon. :D

Short shorts!

I had a hard time figuring out what to do with the high neckline top I was working on. I sat around for a long time just killing time online then I remembered I needed shorts for the summer. I am super glad the shorts turned out great and it fits like a glove. I also tried to make a skirt for my niece, but realized the width of the fabric was shorter than expected. I also reattempted the upcycle tanktop dress in pink and the Hmong scarf. I really like the dress and will probably make myself one.hmong print purple shorts

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.

Hmong green silver floral skirt

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.

I received all of my sample fabrics and decided I only want to use 3 of the designs. The others did not turn out well. This Spring/Summer, my main goal is everyday basic wear; tops, skirts, and summer dresses. I would like to make shorts, but I feel like it is going to be too hard to have it custom fit, especially for those that are not sure how to measure themselves. I’m not sure if I will keep these designs though. For sure the skirt will be part of the collection, but probably not the dresses. The black floral dress is just something I made in between because I wanted to work on a different type of fabric.

I often get requests for a Hmong inspired reception or wedding dress so I thought I should create a print I can use. Gold is my favorite color to go with white. I’m still debating on the prints below. I would love for it to be printed on chiffon, but I don’t think it’s possible.
