I like to smile

I have an attitude that I have to knock off when it comes to sewing. I get discouraged easily. There will be a point where I get all excited about sewing, start to sew and cut and sew and finally couldn't wait for the pieces to finish, I rush it out and make mistakes and get discouraged. Never mind getting discouraged, it had to come with a total halt and hibernation phase. The worst since started sewing, I don't really buy cloths. It just don't seem worth buying something I can sew. It makes me more thrifty, at the same time shirtless. Hah! The first is OK. The 2nd is quite depressing. No sewing and no more cloths. My husband don't believe me when I say I have no more cloths to wear. Men just don't get it I guess. Hehe. I've got to rant more. It does good to the soul.

Have a good day and puasa dear readers!

Rollypop's Chef uniform

My sister started her baking passion-turn-business a few years ago. She had gone from home business to a bakery store based just recently.  Quite an achievement. Sharing below her very creative creation.

So every baker needs a chef uniform right?'s me doing a muslin so that it would fit. The actual uniform will be black BUT to this date it has not fit in perfectly yet. I have sewn with the actual fabric but because also this is my first time sewing a plus size top, its a bit of a challenge. By the way, the plus size button top kurung I sewn for mom which I destroyed does not count. Ngeehh.. Everything on the body fits perfectly fine. I just have to amend the armhole now. The remnants is not big enough for me to cut a new arm so was disappointed when the fabric store had all the colors under the sun of this material except black. How can that be?  This means this project will have to be put aside until I have the arm sorted out.
