The Good Deeds Dress | Sewing | New Clothes | Mend and Make New

Decided to make a dress for my nieces.

Came across the “Good Deeds Dress” and loved the design.

However, I found it rather complicated and unclear how to add a lining.

So I decided to do a tutorial on how to do it.

Diner en Blanc | The Final Dress | Mend and Make New

Ta dah..

I am so proud of this design, the rouch is what I wanted the dress to look like.

However the “butterfly”neck line was me trying to salvage a badly freestyle cut neck line.

But thank God that it ended up the PERFECT neckline for the evening.

Since I also made butterflies to identify as a person who is a floater.

See the origami butterfly in my hair? 😛

This is the MOST comfortable fancy dress! The Roche adds quite a bit of space for sitting and eating 😉

The Final dress. Haha.. I am one of the few photographers who LOVES to be in front of the camera;) Thank you so much Cheryl from Finestone Photography for taking this photo for me:)

Check out the Work In Progress 😀

The best thing about the dress is the pocket I added on the left hand side of me:D

Would you like me to do a tutorial on how to add a hidden pocket in your dresses?

Diner en Blanc | Work In Progress | Mend and Make New

Last week I went to an awesome creative women retreat. As part of the Friday dinner we had a Diner en Blanc where we get to decorate our table and dress up in all white!

Ha ha.. They mention the re-use of wedding dresses.. Only thing was my wedding dress is NOT blue:P So I had 1 week left and decided to bite the bullet and make my own out of calico and a scrap piece of shimmery white material I got for free:D

The dress I uploaded on Facebook Thursday at 6:30 pm
People thought that it was beautiful! Little did they know it’s not my style.. not yet.
It was just a blank canvas;)

 

I took some photos along the design and sewing process below if you are interested, click  “Continue reading “.

Doona Fix | Sewing | Mend and Make New

So.. I woke up earlier then usual on this faithful Friday morning.

I noticed how ripped our doona was after a month of neglect.

In hindsight, I wished I fixed it when it was just a tiny little hole instead of this ripper which was ripped at several places.

It took me 1/2 a day to fix it and below is the fix 😀

The finished product. I could have used a same colour thread but i like the idea of show casing the fix as an arty element
