    Hello, thanks so much for your comments on my Jenny skirt here and at my blog! You are right, I’m also a person who can’t wear bright strong colors because I look like a crown in such colors. It’s very interesting but there are some types, and we can’t share outfits with people from a certain group! Take care and Happy sewing!

    sorry, i just noticed you left me posts on my burdastyle wall!

    yes I think BATIK is wonderful. It’s rare in the US to see people into it but those who are know that it is a time consuming process to create one by hand. Seeing different items made from batik is fun. Hats, bags, skirts come to my mind first…. good luck!

    Hi dear, thank you for your comment! I think Danielle is good pattern, easy&pretty. I’m sure you’ll love it. Regarding slippery fabric, I suggest you to use large cutting boards and rotarly cutters for cutting. I’d lay the fabric, straight and wide as much as I can, onto the cutting boards and put the patterns onto them carefully. Then I’d put weights (books or something heavy enough, some people like canned foods for weights!) onto the layers and cut out the pieces exactly with a rotary cutter. I use scissors to trace the edge after cutting only for making sure that every corners is cut by rotary cutter properly. And, I suggest, no pins! no silks! (needs some special technique for silk, I believe). I hope it helps. I also recommend this how-to, of course! GOOD LUCK! -yoshttps://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/695

    hi! the batik fabric is super pretty!

    oh and i meant to say that the jacket was too loose for the azalea, but i really like how the azalea looks with jeans, and the color is so pretty.

    (sometimes i have a hard time expressing what i really want to say, because spanish is my first language)

    I would love to help you but I don’t understand word “batik”! Can you translate it on some other way?

    Hi there! I’m glad you like my dress :) Every once in awhile some of our fabric shops will have pattern sales for $1.99 each (or even 5 for $5!). Maybe there’s something like that in your area? I don’t know about Malaysia, but in the US I think it would just depend on the person when you’re talking about batiks. But, I think you should definitely try selling them! It’s worth a shot- I’m sure they’ll sell! You could just try putting a few on etsy first (or a similar site). Good luck with it! I’d love to see what you make! As far as the dogs go, I think every kid likes animals :) I grew up always having a dog around, so we had to get one (or two!) when we got married! We love them, but they are hard work- especially puppies! Maybe ours are just crazy though- I know they calm down when they get older. After the 2nd, we vowed never to get a puppy again- haha! They’re a part of our little family now- so lovable :)

    oh thanks for the comment on my top! Yes it was easy enough to make. I had to make a tester top first to see how much I would have to extend the arm piece but after this I made up the real top and it came out well! I will upload a how to with pictures of the pattern soon!!!bx

    Thanks for the comment, Nomaliza! In knitting, you use a pair or more of knitting needles (shaped kinda like chopsticks), while in crochet, you only use one crochet needle, which has hook at one end. Knitting also makes stretchier result than crochet, that’s why it’s more suitable for garment. That’s as far as I know as I’m only a beginner here, I guess there’s a lot more of explanation out there :)

    ryc, the piping was made by taking cording (looks like a shoelace) and then cutting strips of fabric on the bias and then using a zipper foot to close the seams, i’m not too sure what its called…sorry!

    as for the elastic, have you already baste stitched the top art of the skirt (on the fabric) then pulled on one string to create the ruching effect? if so, to attach the waistband, i just measured around my waist, added 3/8" on both sides, cut the elastic, sewed back on each end to prevent from fraying, then layed the elastic over the skirt (on top of the side where the ruching was created), then stitched over…

    its not pretty underneath, i’m sure there are better ways to do it but it was a quick skirt and i didn’t have the time to think of a better way.

    Hello! :):) Thanks so much for the compliment on my black hat. I have a box full of “dud” hat experiments/ I practice a lot. I got my start in sewing (as an adult—I probably made something for a toy somewhere in there) through millinery.
