A Long Camouflage Jacket

Morning friends. I feel unexpected to be here on a Monday. We are having nonstop little school breaks here and there. But I had the whole weekend all to myself. C met friends at the beach for two days and of course getting toasted in the sun is not my thing, so dad's on duty, which probably explains the completion of this jacket. I had been eyeing this pattern from Cotton Friend for a while, and the original jacket was made in a soft cotton linen I guess. But when I spotted this fabric from…

Stretch Cotton Twill Tapered Pants

Hi, it's been a while. Apart from school holidays, I had also reached a point with blog posts. Instagram seems much easier to use at times like this. I don't know if there's anyone out there who still reads blogs. I know I seldom read the words anymore myself, which is sad, but it's also part of evolution, no? We've all more or less adapted to a visual learning style. I almost convinced myself that blogs are useful no more until recently I wanted to make a jacket of mine in a different…

A Floral Prints Dress

Whether I'm eating in or out, I always clean up my plate, because I don't like wasting food. I've become even more of a food garbage bin after having kid. I finish whatever that's left on C's plate, too. I make sure the leftover food in the fridge is properly consumed before I go grocery shopping. I can't deal with wastage. Last week, M came home with 7 pieces of fabric, all prints, and woven. I don't know if I should be happy. I am currently going through a solid and knits phase and he got…

Long Cardigan in Knits

What touches my heart? Right now I'd tell you anything Asian straight away. Not that I want to live in Asia one day again, I am just currently going through a sentimental phase, I guess. The other day I was fighting back tears while listening to some old songs that I knew from more than a decade ago; And today, I nearly laughed my head off listening to a podcast done in Shanghainese, a language I'm so familiar with and the hosts talked about things they went through in their childhood, which…

Autumn, Are You Coming Yet?

The most worn clothes in the past few months are my three Wanderlust Tees. I love wearing tee shirts, especially the days I plonk myself in front of my machines for long periods of time. I've always wanted to sew ten black tee shirts and just live in nothing else but them. Don't fashion designers usually wear the simpliest clothes? I don't mind pretending I'm one of them. :)) This outfit with a simple tee shirt from here, and a gathered skirt hasn't got any designer chic look, but I had to…

Morning! I have a confession. I am now a certified copycat of my daughter's outfits. C wore the green and black outfit I made for her last week three days in a row, and those ruffle sleeves were shouting for attention. Sometimes you look at the same thing for a long period of time, you either love it or hate it. In this case, I've totally fallen for the ruffles. Instead of C's knits version, I've made mine in linen. This top is from Kana's Standard II, which came out just after Kana's…

When do you know that you are ready? Recently I've had two opportunities knocking on my door. One is to prepare a range for an online kids shop, and the other to have a shared table at a market. Both are aimed at selling, and involve hiring people to sew for me. I know, it's possibly the inevitable route if I want to grow, but something is telling me I'm not 100% ready for that yet. Is it defeating the purpose of my journey by having a small production line? I am not sure. Right now, I make…

Cotton Knits Pintuck Cardigan

I remember playing badminton in our neighborhood with my dad as a young girl. Whenever I wanted to tell him something, I'd always walk up to him because I felt embarrassed that other people might hear me too. My dad had always called me a mosquito, because my volume was as loud as a mosquito's buzz. As I grow up, I've gained more confidence. Even though I still keep a lot of thoughts to myself to this day, I wasn't shy to tell people what I think, which can be translated to being honest, or…

Gathered Skirt for All Ages

One of these days, I might take the plunge and dump my phone. I use my phone, obsessively. Instagram, facebook and twitter (yes, I signed up for twitter recently and I'm not completely sure what it's all for still.), with so many social medias on the go, I am starting to feel overwhelmed. The phone has become a distraction. I find myself go check every 15 minutes. Are there any likes on my photos? Is that a new follower popping up? Are there any comments I need to reply? Has anyone posted…
