Went to Ppl's Park this morning with my mum to explore the material stores they had there. and boy were there material stores! everywhere you turned there was at least one material store! bountiful rolls of cloth everywhere. it was magnificent.
and stiflingly hot. if that even is a word.:P
anyway, after a long search, i found some awesome material. =D
(something went wrong with some of my pics.. but oh well i'll just have to make do! :\)
this lovely stuff here is going to be turned into one of those boob tube dresses which is gathered at the chestal region.
this red and white stuff is for jerri, mine is blue and white. :D i dont remember what the technical term for the gathering elastic bit is called, but i do know it starts with an S.
great seamstress i am.
this wicked japanese geisha stuff is going to be turned into a banana sling bag.. totally groooovy. =p
i finally bought material to start making my cool tulle skirt!!!(yes i'm aware that the photo quality is shite
) i'm taking supre's design and copying it. for a mere... well, lower than what they sell it at anyway!! bahaha.
even though i'd much rather just buy it. their fault for making it so damn bloody expensive.
hahaha this design is just randomly on one of the new tops i bought the other day.. tis a hoodie singlet. very casual. hahaha.
anywho. i wasn't able to find material to make this lovely skirt from Supre.
i have fallen madly in love with it.
although will someone tell me where the fook to find stretch satin!!
i've never even heard of it.here's my new hand bag..:D
only 10 buckarooneys
close up of the flower embroidery.
i've been trying to identify the colour of this bag. caris said.. metallic grey. but i'm thinking it has a hint of brown.. lol. and its definitely not bronze.. someone please enlighten me!!
***since audrey requested she be mentioned in this post, i had no choice but to dig up a random story to share.
audz and i were immensely bored last night, so we started looking at bridesmaid dresses, you know, for if and when we meet our so called Mr Right and get married. (which won't be awhile i assure you, well for me, maybe not so much audz!:P) it's such an alien concept right now, but oh well, didn't stop me from clicking on Google to look for the desired bridesmaid dress. :D so of we went discussing designs, colour, blah blah blah all the other nit picky details. and i found this one dress which absolutely perfectly matched my desired design!! :D
even the colour is spot on... :D although audrey has informed me that the colour won't look good on her.. hahaha. but i'm still going to save the design. :P (perhaps audrey, when i do get married, your skin tone shall have changed :D) bahahaha.
another fab dress i came across was this one
but i'd change the colour :D
i won't be like other people, whose bridesmaids tend to make them look the most beautiful with horrific dresses. gahh what a nightmare. and i think i'd want either turquoise, teal, some kind of purple or emerald green bridesmaids :D bahahaha.
ok enough with wedding talk, it's creeping me out. gah.
actually one more thing.
dream wedding dress!!
although it comes in cartoon form.. i love the style and the flow. and it's Vera Wang.
i love vera wang designs.
ok enough wedding talk.
hopping back into reality now.
