What I didn't tell you in the previous post was that I bought some materials. Not for raya, but for..... hmm stock. Haha. My pantry of kain deserves another post of its own, but oh another time!
Anyways, I bought some beautifulllll silk and chiffon materials that day. The colours, oh my, the colours! From vibrant blue and greens to pastel yellow and pinks. I don't know how people get to keep their head calm in there.
So, I went in, alone, into my candy-land. Husband couldn't joined me because he had to judged a moot at UITM. An arrangement that both of us couldn't be more than happy about. He gets to sit out of "Sayang, which one is nicer?" questions and I get to shop without restriction. Haha.
I have been wanting to get my hands on some good quality silks for a while now. So, I went straight to the first floor where all the silks and chiffons are.
And about an hour and a half later, I came out with two paper bags. -___- I shall not disclose the damage done for fear that my husband reads this. :p
Anyways, one of the materials is a vibrant-coloured paint-brushed-patterned silk. I initially wanted to make a modern kurung, but after a quick conversation with my friend, Dayana and of course, some googling, I decided to make a long simple dress instead.
This is the kain;
And these are the inspirations;
Cantik kan? Can't wait to send this baby to the tailor. But first, to lose some weight. And that is another annoying journey of its own. Haha.
