Loose the red pants please!

Actually, I meant to update about this since few days ago but the fact that I needed to install windows refrained me from doing so. The disk failed to partition so I went through the hassles of erasing my hard disk, booting, and formatting my mac. I called Apple Care support and they were very helpful and I somehow managed to partition and install windows 7 without a problem. Wasted a lot of time. Should’ve called ‘em in the first place. yeah, silly me. sheeesh.

Well, at least now I know how to format, install, backup and restore on Mac. hahah. *sedapkan hati sendiri*

Anyhoo, I took some pictures while installing. So, lets see them first, shall we?

Oh, I love the fabric! It almost like splashes of paints in a glance, reminds me Jackson Pollock’s contemporary art, except it’s actually a more abstract form of flower print. heheh. As usual, I use Japanese cotton. The usual price is about RM48 (approx US$14.4) per meter, if I’m not mistaken. I saw this fabric a while ago but when I came back to get it, it wasn’t there. Then, I dug piles of remnant fabrics and found it, only RM30 (approx US$9) 2.6m! Am I lucky or what? :D

For this particular dress, I used Celestina pattern from Burdastyle website. Much thanks to Eddie for making this possible :p Anyways, I modified the sleeves to be a straight sleeve, and made the hem shorter.The belt is supposed to be tied on the back, but I like it much better in front! hoho.

*off topic*

oh yeah, I now also can take a deep breath of relieve and so do you (maybe) since somebody is generous enough to offer a sponsorship for my blog! For some reason, he’s keeping his identity secret and won’t reveal even a name. It was only until I insisted that he told me to link to his website, Sejukz.org. Thanks so much! So, yeay! I’ll keep blogging! hehe :p

Now, moving on.

Of a good, and not-so-good day.

HELLOOOOO! Here’s the promised entry for my latest project. Well, it’s not actually the latest, the latest project I did was a shirtdress and it’s currently in the laundry. hahah.

This dress was made from a very high quality cotton, it’s quite thick, very durable yet really soft and comfortable to wear. Very easy to sew too. It has six 1-inch pleats on the front, making the front very lose, and 2 darts were sewn, making the back slightly fitted. An invisible zipper was fitted. I wanted to add side pockets but I didn’t have enough fabrics. Oh, did I mention I made the pattern myself, from scratch? ;)

This is a simple bubble dress I made during my last break, but didn’t have the time to update about it. Made out of Japanese cotton. Modified the bodice based on the coffee dress pattern  but added the bubble skirt and eliminated the front ruffles. I added two pockets at both side of the dress to make it more fun! :D

This is the dress I made just before the above. It has ruffles on the front, with gathered skirt and back zipper. It uses the same Japanese cotton material, and it’s based on Coffee dress pattern. Although, I altered the skirt to add more volume. :p

Anyhooo, I also did some clothes and shoes inventory and I found clothes that I forgot I had. hahah.  There are two pair of shoes that need gluing. zzzzz…. I also got rid of maybe 3 pairs of shoes. Platforms, gold flats and black platform pumps. Goodbye to them. T_T

Most of my shoes. Randomly sorted. There are two pairs that are not shown cause I thought I lost them but they were actually in one of those shoe boxes. -__-”

****************

Gah! I’m so tired now. I spent the last 2 hours and a half scraping dried 3-secs glue that my sister PURPOSELY splashed on my iMac screen. She made me really angry when she stole my shoe boxes, and now, imagine how angry I was, this is the worst thing she’d ever done! Oh, other than my screen, she also glued my medication bottle on the table.

Nice Aida, NICE.

I can’t believe my eyes. I gave her full access to my iMac, and this is how she repay me? What a bitch. This clearly reminds me of why I cried the second (yes, literally the very second) my mum told me that she was pregnant 8 years ago.

It was a 3-secs glue damn it.

The funny thing is, after I yelled at her really badly, and also beat her ass a few times, (she cried, of course) but 15 minutes later, she bumped into me and actually tried to joke with me and laugh like nothing happened.*SIGHHHHHH*

Kids these days.

p.s, for some reason, I’m not convinced that this’s the worse thing she’d done to me. hmm…

p.p.s, today was also good cause I had a great time with someone watching movie and had chocolate iceblended, rasberry ice blended and Krispy Kreme! fuh! hahah ;D

If you wanna take up sewing, Burdastyle is a good place to start.
