Bilbobibs


Our dear friend Emelyn just had her 3rd baby, so I told the husband "Let's make her some bibs!!!"


Here he is, slaving away tracing the pattern. Hard at work ayeee. Heheheh. Spycam picture by my brother-in-law.

I modified the pattern from an existing bib pattern, and now I'm kinda wondering if the neck hole is a bit small. The husband said "Don't worry, babies have small heads anyway." -_-

The bib is reversible, so it can be used both ways.

This fabric was picked out by the husband btw. I was kinda dubious about it at first, but I think it goes great with the yellow that I picked out heeheheheh ;-)
Never Never Land


Here are some pictures of the slightly-wonky-but-it's-ok Peter Pan collar long top thingy. I KNOW, I wear that belt so much right? I need to make more of these slim elastic belts since I like wearing this one so much -_-"


Here's a close-up of the fabric, it's a stretch lace fabric from Kamdar SS2 (again haha), it was from the clearance bin. I love it, it's really pretty against the light. Btw, Kamdar SS2's having a sale right now woohoo!

I had to take in the sides of the top a few times, because I had followed a pattern for the collar and sleeves that, unbeknownst to me, was a wee bit big for me ehehehehe. (Idiot).

Anyhoo, it can also be worn with skirts! Excuse the un-ironed skirt HAHA. The skirt was thrifted from Amcorp Mall's flea market at about RM5 or so. It's cream coloured, full-circled, and has pretty eyelet details all over it. And... pockets!!! WHEEEEE. It was originally really long, so I just chopped off a few inches from it.

This rocks even harder than the OK Go video

Almost done!


Am finally almost done with the Peter Pan collar experiment! All it needs is some ironing and some sunlight to take a decent picture I guess.

This tutorial was a great help in understanding the construction of a Peter Pan collar to fit a garment, and yes it does kinda make you want to put Peter Pan collars on every darn thing. Hehe.
