Wonder where I got the materials to make cawats from my last post? Yeah, you got it. I had to sacrifice a Cinderella ball dress for six pieces of coverings! Wait, you didn't get it. Of course not.
What was I thinking?? I'm not a seamstress and definitely have no si fu to teach me how to handle a piece of cloth, a pair of scissors and needles in the first place but I do know one thing best, I have big g*ts! Thus the attempt to make my own mini dress!
Sayang: "Soon..." and continued my longest stare...
I kept telling myself that it was a wrong move, I could still back off and snip those patterns into a mini pouch or anything handy. Yet another part of me itched stubbornly to move on. Okay, so the stubborn voice won and led me to endless measure! grrr! *pun intended*
Believe me, I went blank many a times not knowing what to do next. On top of that, I didn't really know how to maneuver with all the gadgets I had to switch on my machine to make a dress! Boy was the zipper a pain. First, I had to figure how to get the zipper foot work, second, I had to think and imagine how to attached the zippers to the dress from insideout considering the appearance and all and last, to actually sew on zippers. Oh, did you know how hard it is to sew a semi curved shaped neckline? It's freaking hard (for a first timer of course). Too many first time experiences that was why they pretty much thrust me to finish the dress!
Weee! I got to try the dress on today! It wasn't Forever 21 nor Zara labelled, but I was very pleased with all the noticeable imperfections on the dress. I made it knowing so well that I wasn't a crackerjack. I didn't make it for Brooklyn Medical Malpractice Attorney...Yet don't mind if I do. :)
Meantime, lets disco!!! You can ring my beeeeeellllllll.....ring my bell.....you can ring my beeeelllllll...ring my bell! ^_^
