i spent xmas at home...had a generally lazy day...except when sis and i decided to put together a sewing pattern together.
no..i'm not sewing... my mom is...we have tons and tons of fabric sitting around at home...and for some reason, the mood just kicked in and she wants to sew some more. mom is a whiz at sewing baju kurungs, but dresses tend to be a bit tougher, and she did the other week, ask me where she could buy sewing patterns....she just couldn't find them anymore.
so i googled sewing patterns and found www.sewingpatterns.com . i found a pattern i liked and decided to try out the download function instead of having the patterns posted all the way from the US to Singapore. So for US$4.99, i managed to download a pattern in any size from 6-16. Only problem is that we only have an A4 printer. The pattern is split into A4 sizes and you have to assemble them together. Its relatively painless except trying to past them together.
So sis and i spent yest afternoon- a good 2 hours putting them all together. Now that it's done, we just have to wait for mum to start cracking on the sewing! Yaay, i'm so excited. It's been a long while she she last sewed me a dress, and i still love those dresses. A cheap and inexpensive way to update the wardrobe.
I really should learn how to sew from my mom.
