Neon Pink

Ola! I had meant to post a week ago when I started on this project. What project?

This.

NEON-PINK-KIMONO-JACKET

A KiMONO jACKET!

It’s neon because I need to wear something neon on our office Christmas party this coming Friday. Yay!

I made this from scratch. I bought the jersey fabric from one of my favorite fabric store in my home city, cut the fabric, had the design pressed onto the fabric, and sewed up the shoulders like so…

I made this print as well and had it print pressed onto the fabric. I should have taken a photo during the pressing. boo.

And then it’s done!

I’m so happy!

Will post here about the goings on and the outfits on our Neon Christmas Party happening two days from now!

And onto another diy…

Will make a photo tutorial for this necklace. 🙂

It’s very easy to make! Made this one tonight. I also plan on recycling a pair of plastic flats to wear on Friday. Hopefully I can make time.

For now, desperately need to float to slumberland.

Path Halloween Cutters

Forgive the title. I’m out of creative juices…

I want to go on a holiday… go to the beach and just while away the time enjoying the horizon, the salty air and the sound of rolling waves…so relaxing… But enough of that for now,  perhaps in a few weeks or months, I’d get to relax and enjoy a few days.

It’s been a while…

But there had been a few good days. For instance? Halloween at the office 🙂  There were contests and everyone was happy to participate. I had to rummage through my closet and put together a few items for a costume. I just realized then how my actual clothes are costume-worthy. Hilarious! All I was left to do was cut and dye MissL’s ruined tights, revive the Dr, borrow one of MasterD’s toy guns and rub some face crayons on… et voila!

So, yeah, I just had to post this before November ends. Looking forward to the good things hoped for this December… 🙂

Aaand, I’m really loving the changes on WordPress. So cool!

D-signs: of prints and dresses

OK, I really do want to learn to make clothes. But, aside from my attempts at the craft by cutting and hand-sewing this and this from scratch, I’ve mostly just restyled other garments by hand.

I thought I could make time to take some lessons but I’ve had my hands full for I don’t know how long anymore that I end up doing other fashion related designing instead.

The past weekends, when I do find the time to do something I enjoy, I ended up making graphic designs for dresses. You know, those designs that should be digitally printed onto the fabric? Yeah, it’s been popular these past years, hasn’t it? And I’ve been obsessing over making digital print designs myself for years… for about 3 to 4 years now, I think.

I’m just glad that before I expire, I did get to do it. And I made several! I made 20!

But I’m just posting thumbnails, of sorts, of four of those here.

Only now, I’ve been obsessing over having them actually made. You see, I’ve not only made the print designs but came up with dress designs for the prints to be on too. Boo!

If ever I do get the chance to have the dresses made, even just a fraction, I’d be ecstatic, I’ll be posting them here, naturally.

Will grab some dinner now… starving…

Thanks for swinging by!

And They Shall Live Happily Ever After…

I haven’t been around in months for a number of reasons but I’ve been itching to post this… And, well a few more. But for tonight, just these:

And here we are (Gianne, moi, Cara and Kat) @ Tom n’ Tom’s, celebrating in our home city…

Will have to wake up early for the kids tomorrow, then it’s a whole day at work. Just waiting on The Mister, gone to training zhiuzhits…

Blessed evening…

Nica

It’s our cousin Nica’s birthday and we had lunch and desserts to celebrate.

*sigh*

Being with younger cousins makes me feel my age… Especially when they used to be so tiny when I was a teenager… Now, they’re young adults!

Mon A. Ferretti

So, a few weeks back, I was in Cebu. Returning to Bacolod, headed to the bus station, I decided to drop by the Basilica del Sr. Sto. Nino. Walking the streets of Colon, thrift shops were shining like beacons. So, I decided to swing by one as I thought I still had time to loiter.

As I was about to leave the shop, a pink chiffon item caught my eye. At first I hesitated, fearing it might be pricey. But I thought I’ve got nothing to lose by asking, and so I did. To my surprise, it was just for 20PHP- less than a dollar!. I was ecstatic!

I was even more surprised when I checked the tag, which was still on, and found out it was an Alberta Ferretti!
