Tutorial: A line dress pour Zara

I wanted to make something simple for my little Zara so an A-line dress sounds perfect for me. It is so easy to make for a beginner (or for a working mom that don't have much time to enjoy sewing as much as she wanted to ;) Sunday after Sahur is the perfect time for some "me" time..

First, find a dress that you could trace the pattern from.
I personally don't like to trace on top of the tracing paper. I trace it directly to the fabric to cut down some time. ;) It is a bit risky but that's just me.

Cut the fabric
The collar I made it slightly oval just to try out the look.
This is also a free-hand pattern ;)

I decided to pipe my dress so I piped the collar, arm hole and the bottom of the dress.
I have also added a 2 minutes rosette with sequins to add the fun on the dress.
For full tutorial, you can view it here. It's an easy to follow instruction.

She reminds me of Bam Bam Flintstones.. :)
This post ends with a kiss...... :)

Kamdar now goes online!!

Do you guys know about Kamdar Online store? I was certainly did not! What a pleasant surprise! I have always hated to have to park car at Jalan TAR (expensive parking rates, crowded with people, have to walk miles and miles away just to get to the store) oh gosh, it is certainly a nightmare especially if you have small kids like me. The online store didn't have much fabric selection but it does do the job for someone like me. I love the knitting page which I find the fabric is hard to find in Malaysia..
If you want to find knit in KL, Kamdar online is your quick solution! ;)
Can you imagine, how cute the dresses will be using these fabrics? Love!!

I bought it at Sentul from a shop that we have known for ages - 'kedai elektrik raja' or the real company name is On Call Electrical & home renovation. It's located near La Salle school and just beside Singer Sentul.
