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!

Hmong Print Mini Skirt

November 8, 2013

I know I know I’m getting side track but the fabric I designed finally came in. I only ordered a yard of it just to see the quality of the fabric and printing. I have to say, I’m not too impress, but it’s expected. First of all, it’s printed AND it’s knit so the ink does not saturate well enough. When the fabric stretches, the original color of the fabric, which is white, still shows. Secondly, the fabric does not stretch as much as I would like it to. It is a cotton knit and I knew before ordering that there’s not much stretch to it like polyester knits, but I had a little hope that it would differ. Anyway, I received it yesterday and took me awhile to figure out what to do with it. Mini skirt it is!

I ordered some fabrics yesterday to start on my collection. I can’t wait to receive it. I found the fabric at Walmart but their service is so horrible that I’d rather order it online and pay $1 more per yard. This fabric, if not the exact, reminds me of a blouse belonged to my mom.

I wasn’t going to buy these for myself, but since my sister in law wanted me to get her a few yards, I decided to buy it for myself as well.

Hmong Trims

While in CA, I bought some trims and fabrics. I feel very guilty making all these purchases. These are just the trims. I will post fabrics later.

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?…
