Congratulations to my lucky girl friend who has a same waist size as me! Three days before her birthday, I decided to make her a peplum skirt, which is now a hot trend and can be seen anywhere during this season of spring/summer 2013!
I spent a total of three nights to make this (I thought I could finish this in 1 night because it looks pretty simple! Haha!). One night to draft, one night to sew, and one night to hand finished all the raw edges and hem, since I want the skirt looks more like high-end fashion and I’m against visible serged edges. Lots of work but it’s worth it! 🙂
Maybe I should make one for myself to wear this season too! 😀
Made some crochet flowers today. Woohoo, I now have something to attach to my dresses 😀
Thanks blogger “Green Dragonfly” for the free pattern!
Bonus my own DIY flower:
Not bad for a newbie, eh? Haha!
Suck at sewing? Too scared to chop off your hem? Try this fast and easy method of hemming your jean. It not only keeps your original hem but also looks super neat!
Here’s a pair of jeans I hemmed today:

Good luck! 🙂
