Today was a lazy day for me. Well not that I did not prepare breakfast or lunch for myself and Georgia (Andy has work today). I was too lazy to change my pjs...today is just one of those days where I just like to laze around and of course the dreadful out of bed look is not to be seen by others!!!
Ever since I got back from my holiday (I miss Tokyo!!!), I was not in the best of health. I got flu and then I suffered from low blood pressure. I fell down from the stairs and hurt my knees while I was on my way back after getting groceries. And I have been getting migraines for the past few days. So I am really glad that I am alright today and in fact was in the mood for some sewing. I have a stack of Japanese sewing/craft magazines and I chose a pattern from the Spring collection of Child Boutique (I love all the children's collection and they are soooo cute and breautiful!).
*ADDITION* This is the pattern I used. I would love to make an adult version for myself too. ^_^. I used the red batik fabric which I bought from Chinatown a while ago. I love this fabric simply because it's in red. I love red. I feel happy and powerful when I wear red. And Georgia also shares my liking for the colour (and she simply adores pink!!!).
Making clothes is still quite difficult for me as I am still not that skilled yet. It took me three hours just to make this simple dress. At least I'm glad that it turned out the way I wanted it to be. I still have about half a meter left and I hope to make another skirt for Georgia or maybe a little pouch for my personal fan.
Georgia was turning in circles when I get her to try on her dress. She said that she looked like a princess! Yeah she sure is my princess ^_^
