Happy Monday! This will be the first of many post regarding Seoul as I’ll be putting up some posts regarding places to go and things to look out for especially when travelling with a toddler. I started the Around the World fabric series for a while now to document all these fabric places I’ve been to whenever I travel. Part of the fun is researching these places and eventually making it there and immersing myself in what the place has to offer and its culture.
Just this week I posted on Instagram (@adesays) about how weekends for me is all about exploring the outdoors and running about and that short is now my go to outfit for the weekends. What then work great with shorts would be some neat nice tank/blouse which I really have a lack for.
My mum who was my sewing teacher in the initial days before I decided to enrol into a dressmaking class was all about self-drafted patterns. Often she finds her inspirations from Japanese sewing magazines or relied on some of these patterns inserts that came with the magazines. When it came to commercial patterns in the likes of Simplicity or Vogue, she simply was not a fan. The main reason for her was the fitting issues and modifications needed for it to work for her.
October is a busy month, with us travelling, celebrating birthdays and the many social engagements we have in store, I hardly will have anytime to sew. I’ve been wanting to get some new stuff sewn up, so with 2 weeks till the end of the month, I’m hoping I can squeeze out some time to sew!
While clearing out my closet recently, I realised that I didn’t have many things I could wear to weddings. I have a few formal dresses which I usually wears them to work for formal meetings or on days when I am required to dress up more, and I certainly wasn’t keen to wear them for weddings.
There are plenty of sewing patterns for little girls out there, but what I found lacking was sewing patterns for boys. Granted that there are much lesser variations in terms of dressing for boys but I had really wanted to sew something beyond just little shorts for my bub. And that’s when I found Puperita.
Often, my go to work attire consist of a blouse, a snug fitted knit pencil skirt and a pair of flats. It is extremely comfortable and one of those assemble that never goes wrong. However, as much as I love my knit pencil skirts, I actually don’t own that many pairs because a good quality one at an affordable price is hard to find. So I have 2 and I basically wore them to death and now they are looking tired and in need to be replaced.
