On-the-go bag

I'll soon be going back to school,
so I decided to make myself a bag to carry school stuff in.
The bag is spacious enough for a 12-inch laptop + big books.

I used khaki and corduroy (all in black) to achieve the outer look
But then, while sewing the pieces together, I felt an all black bag would be boring
So, I used red dacron fabric as some sort of highlight on the handle and pocket.
The bag was fully lined with polyester fabric

white-out dress

My sister-in-law requested that I make her a dress...
Plain white cotton combined with african print.
The outcome is this simple yet elegant dress!!!
It's unfortunate she isn't around at the moment to fit and model  it :)

toddler dresses

I've been wanting to focus on kids clothes for some time now...
Tiny and sometimes cumbersome to make!!!
All the same, I believe my efforts have been successful so far.
I hope to try out more fanciful styles in future :)

drapey cowl neck

Interesting tutorial. Thanks to Lauriana -

Instead of knit fabric, I tried out pattern on chiffon and also lengthened my blouse; It turned out great!!!
I however realized that, the height of the back collar (7 cm) after completing blouse was quite high (could be because I used chiffon), so I folded it over and it was just fine.
