Inspired by Allie, I’ve also decided that I should give my self-drafted makes more love by giving them more presence through naming them. I’m guilty of downplaying self-drafted patterns, by no means are they easier to make than commercial patterns. In-fact they require even more effort!
This blog tour is hosted by Sewing by Ti and the theme is Ch-Ch-Changes.
Those of you who have followed me for awhile would know that recently I’ve been giving a lot of thought into curating a sustainable and intentional wardrobe. I want to fill my wardrobe with pieces that not only suits my current lifestyle but one that can also keep me inspired.
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.
