But why "RETAS BALIK"????
because.... emmm yesterday i went to the usual place i send for serger... but this time the owner of the shop said " TAda SENANG OOO TAda SENANG...!!" not even looked up at me.. huh... ('action' heah?!!).... even though i kind of upset with her respond... i kept my voice low... until she finally looked up and maybe she just realized i was holding my baby with one hand .. and the other hand my bag ( ooo my green bag).. then she lowered down her voice and recommended me to the other shop. I went to the suggested shop, but it was closed... my last chance was to go to my tailor where i used to go for my handmade baju kurung... i try to avoid to go there..due to....'segan ooo'... her hand sewn is very neat... but... what the hack...

So, i went there... with my hands open and of course my mind should be opened as i am in learning process now, right... ego has to put aside... uhuhuh.. and.. she immediately responded to my works... ( surprisingly i took her adviced with glad)... she even taught me and gave me a tutorial on "how to curve my pocket.. and how to sew the pocket to the fabric".. 

So the lessons learned today... with the TIPs ( as i maybe knew, but took for granted)

1) my pockets should be in curves... (bulat) at below corner...

the funny things is.. my pockets were round... but the way i sewn them make them not round...:D

 2) the grain of the body fabric was not parallel with the grain of my pocket... 

which i knew ... but hoping tt nobody noticed.. hehehe... but a tailor knows best!!

3) My thread was a bit darker compared to my fabric... the thread should be lighter in color to blend-in into the fabric so that if there's any mistake not so obvious...

... as i bought the thread before, i was hoping that the colour will match with the fabric... as yellow is yellow... hehe silly me..

so... UNDO ALL!!!... luckily the body and the other parts yet to sew... n raya is still far away... still ample time to redo ... no prob.. n so glad that the first shop "shush" me away... or else.. my sticthing ... well... you can guess, right???

THANK YOU K IDA... for willing to show me my wrong doings..... :D
like pepatah melayu saying..."Segan bertanya sesat jalan"...

after alterations... 
(changed thread, fabric grain.. and curve...!! yeah.. )

Why 2nd blog?

Established in April 2011 (after a year from existence of my 1st blog). For my personal filing and ease of reference. Also as a place to preserve and a way for my self expression for all my previous learning processes, experiences and the time spent.
