Pink Satin Dress

Satin is a BIG deal for me. Cutting was not a trouble, but sewing was really a mess. I used the wrong needle and the fabric crinkled. Thought I bought suitable needle, it keep crinkling, and when I sewn the gathered skirt, I broke the needle twice..sigh.Although, it took extra time to sew it, I am quite happy with the result.

Actually, I want to make this dress comfy for working at office as well as for casual occasion, but I think it turned out too glamorous. Do you think is it "too much" for office attire? hahaha..yes, of course! :p
idea for the dress is from here. yes, it is a girl's dress :)

Hey, finally I got my own label, thanks to mbak Fitria for sharing her idea about this. I used Data Print T-Shirt transfer paper which I ordered from her.

the fabric flower tutorial is here

Next week, I am going to work on this cotton fabric, a shirt for my little sister and a dress for me. The week after I am thinking to play with chiffon :)

Anyway, I think there is something wrong with the dress, I should make outer skirt fuller than the lining skirt..mmhh..what do you think? :P
