A jubilee weekend creation – reversible bag with strap and handle

It is the Jubilee weekend here in Singapore where we are celebrating the 50th year of nation building.  That means a bumper 4 days of ‘holiday’ (except for those who work on Sat).

I havent been sewing for some time, busy with the children and also my other new toy (breadmachine).

This long break i have aimed to do some sewing and this is the first – the jubilee weekend bag.

Reversible, with both strap and handle. What more can one ask for?

One side outdoor fabric heart print, reverse it for sweet fairytale fabric.



It is 99% done. I havent got the swivel claps so i need to go grab them tomorrow!


An adapted sorbetto

I made my first sorbetto last year. I like the easy assembling but i didnt like the neckline which was not very flattering due to my collarbones sticking out. I felt i had to adjust that and also the length. I hate to keep pulling my top to cover the back.

So i took a store bought top with the neckline i like and starting drawing out my own pattern.

Originally i wanted to use store bought yellow bias tape for the collar as well as arm hole bit i felt it can be a bit over kill… making it look really handmade??

In any case i wore it with a dark blue uniqlo jeans and i like it.


Time for more sorbettos!

Made Me May

Oh… i didnt take the vow… but i did made a skirt (for self) and a pair of pants (for DS2).

I always like a gathered skirt but have always made them elastic both front and back. I dont really like have a thick waist in front.

I decided to try make a flat front with elastic back skirt. I took the advised measurement from a blog and find it ultra unflattering. It really make my rear look big. I do not like it.

I made adjustments to the skirt which now looks very gathered in front but not so gathered at the back. I find that more forgiving!


The adjusted measurements read:
Front 44 inch (gather them until it matches the length of the front flat waist band)
Back width as per your waist ie like for mine is 28 inch (do not need to gather)

For the front flat waist: take half your waist ie mine will be 14 inch
For the back: take as per your waist measurements (this should be the same as the main fabric for the skirt).

For the elastic at the back, take half your waist and minus 4 inches.

Let me know if this revised measurements work well for you!
