miss sew and sew

Monday, July 5, 2010

i made a dress!  after weeks of deliberation, i finally bought myself a japanese dress book.  the dress turned out better than i expected, what with my limited sewing ability.  that, and the fact that all the instructions are written in japanese :)  with a little lots of help from my mum (she has extraordinary japanese diagram translating skills) i actually managed to turn a piece of material into something wearable.   i’m looking forward to making my next dress..or top..or jacket…..
