Sewing in confinement

ok, don't start lifting your eyebrows now, i know some people say jgn pegang jarum masa dlm pantang...erk...but i can't help it...i'm really feeling the itch to stitch..the past couple of day i've been lucky cos Mia decided to sleep at night, only waking up for her feedings...so sempatla nak menjahit...

i was actually going for the bubble skirt here, using another technique..but apparently it didn't work out so well as you can see..the skirt looks more like a normal hem and not the bubble hem...
but i love the fabric, don't you? from Tanya Whelan new Dolce collection...

velvet ribbon...love it...will definitely get more of this..

i think i might put this dress in my etsy store..and add more...

Why tak boleh pegang jarum in confinement ek? Not that I ever did or will lah kan :)
Love the fabric....such a pretty colour. Yes, do make more dresses.
If you ever feel like setting up sewing classes, do let me know. I'd be a willing student. With 2 girls I really need to learn to use my sewing machine. I dread the day one or both ask me to hem/alter/make clothes for them. Sini seamstress mahal....kat KL mana2 ada and cheap.

E`n1x said...

kak wiera,
i'm no expert..i pun baru nak blaja sewing garments..

okinokiyo,
azniena.etsy.com. but it's empty now ..huhu..i'll fill it up insyaallah..

elly,
thank you !

kak fathin,
adam tak jadik pun train tido ngan daddy dia. our routine: i bfeed Mia, pass her to Daddy. I put Adam to sleep. once he sleeps i slip out. Mia with us in living room until we're ready to go to bed. we all sleep in the same bed. ade cot attached to bed for more space..

pu3,
no i tak penah buat pyjama for adam. hard to get boy fabriclah..sian boys kan..heh..

munirah,
insyaAllah i will..

melina,
where are you located? sewing class?alamak malu jer..tapi kalau u in london, jom dtg rumah i..boleh je tunjuk how to hem/alter/sew sikit2..best ade 2 girls..boleh jahit cute2 dresses..hehe

lilies,
u pregnant??congrats! alah knit tu doesn't take a rocket scientist to do..i ikut pattern dlm buku jer...

chun,
alah boys susahla nak jahitkan diorg..kain with boy print payah nak cari...

Melina said...

I'm in Croxley Green near Watford. You're around Little Venice kan? Not that far from me...half an hour aje. If parking senang around yours I may just take you up on your offer. :) When the weather's better nanti perhaps. Such a chore to load up my girls in this horrid weather.
Plus it'll be nice for my girls to meet your kids....buat kawan melayu kan and get them to speak more malay. Otherwise it's just mummy who speaks in the weird language LOL! My girls paham just refuse...well adik too young but kakak definitely refuses and will always reply in English even when I speak Malay. Eh melalut pulak I ek. Nanti we arrange a meet up lah ek.

MommyAdam said...

melina,
yes definitely lets meet up. we recently stopped renting out our parking space so you can park in our basement actually, so senanglah..

fathinz md nor said...

owhh, thanks aida..
akak pun pk malas nk train dia sleep separately. kesian pulak. planning to buy a small matress, tidokan rayyan kat bawah coz now dia dah lasak.. mybe adik dia will be on the bed with us.. thanks for the tip ye.
