My sewing for Fall 2013

Technically, Bangkok, my hometown doesn't has Fall. We do have a marvelous summer, a monsoon with flood and a tiny bit of winter which the temperature may get down to 25 degree Celsius for a week if you are in the capital city.
We have a plenty of summer, indeed! So, sewing for fall and winter here is like a daydream for me. Accept, we can have a vacation somewhere else. Then I've got the good reasons for fall sewing. Yay!!
These are my sewing for fall.

Red riding Nituna Jacket
1. The Figgy's Nituna Jacket was in the amazing bundle sale, Sew Fab. The pattern is cute and I decided to made it by up-cycled old red fleece blanket and lined up with my floral flea-market 2nd hand tablecloth. The lace which trims around tablecloth hem was perfectly being pretty hem for the hood.

Her signature post during this trip, the rabbit post!

2. The reversible A-line dress

3. Owl sweatshirt from my crop top up-cycling. Easy perject with lovely result.

4. Leopard hoodie scarf.

5. The Heart Jumper I made for Project Run&Play sewalong. Using W Pants from Blank slate pattern .

That are what I made for fall trip. Which one do you like most? :)

KCW fall 2013 : FLIP the Sunki pattern

The KCW for fall is on going. And I'm so glad that I can finished a dress from Figgy's Sunki pattern for October Flip These pattern sewalong in last minute (again). :)

The velvet Sunki from Sunki dress pattern
The pattern of this month, Sunki dress is not my normally choice to consider. Because from its look, I would think this pattern may too complicate for my beginner seam stress level. But my intention is to participate in every months of FLIP these pattern sewalong. So, I give it a try.

Sunki in tunic lenght

Apparently, this pattern is not that complicate as I thought. I faced a little trouble when tried to complete the 1st site of that curve pocket but with the helping from my dear seam ripper, it was done nicely. The 2nd pocket was smoothly finished without any issue. Learning curve, I would say.

My little alternation to the Sunki pattern
I keep it till the last day to start this project. Then, I want it so simple that I can made in a couple of hours. Knit is my fabric of choice but while I search through my fabric starch I found this lovely teddy bear printed stretchy velvet to work with instead. The red side panel was made from my old t-shirt.

I did alter the Sunki a bit to ensure it can finished with stretchy materials. I didn't use the back zipper, made it sleeveless and finished the neck and arm holes with bias tape. I was also shorten the length and created the band at the bottom end instead of hemming.

Look at my little model, can't help that she looks grumpy. I stole her time while she was playing outside with her friends to model these shots. She like the teddy bear printed on this tunic/dress but me, took too many shots was so annoying for her. She also refused to change her pants for photo shots and I let it went by as is.

Mom, did you done yet?
Wake me up when you got enough, O.K.?
Thank you for stopping by, I really love to hear your comments! :)

Project Run&Play # 7 : 4st week " I Heart Jumpsuit"

Woooo! Finally, I did it through 4 weeks of PR&P sew-along. I can't believe I can done all 4 outfits in a month. This was very fun and a milestone for my sewing learning curve!

And the last week's theme is "Signatures style". This theme knocked me out. Since I'm just a newbie in sewing, it's not easy to identified which are my most preferred looks for the girl.

As many ideas came and gone and I done nothing till Wednesday , I thought I have to make something that easy to finished and wearable.... here comes the Jumsuit, I Heart Jumpsuit.

As an official member of Romper/Jumpsuit & Suspenders lover club. I decided to make another jumpsuit for my girl. I've just can't resist the cuteness of Romper/Jumpsuit & Suspenders on little girl.

This "Heart Jumpsuit" idea came to me since FLIP sewalong on Sep. I want to flip the W Pants from Alphabet collection to jumpsuit but I have no time to do so.

This project was done on time without many details. I keep the design simple and clean since the main fabric is already stand out.

The W Pants have a ton of options to select. But I've done nothing from that wonderful list even the belt loops was eliminated due to my laziness time constrain. But I keep the pockets to made my girl satisfied.

I did add the elastics inside straps to make the suspenders like effect and ensure them stay on the shoulders.

p.s. The girl was not in the good mood for photo shot... That why she has got a stomachache like facial expression. Can not imagine how she react when she is being tween. :)

So, this PR&P#7 was done and I'm sure to waiting for start doing these fun sewing experiences again on the next season.  Don't forget to hop to the web to see wonderful work of the last round competition here and blown away with a ton of breath taking creations from sew-along entries here

Thank you for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. :)
