Something to show

December last year I make a tote bags that we gift away to my husband office mates.  The design is very simple and could be use in any casual occasion. I make additional pocket,  inside for some space to put all things. it's good thing that they like what i make for them.  unfortunately, I forgot to take a shot . Anyway,  I will make a copy of that bag same design but, maybe in different color and post it as soon as possible.

On my husband Christmas party I made him his costume the theme of their party was like a "Wild wild West"  so I looked in the net  in found something like this, I've done some collaboration with the design and it turns out good and made him won a price as the "Cowboy of the West".

It was also their Christmas party when I made him a leather jacket coz, the theme of their group was from the movie of "Grease".

After January, here it comes the February!  the month of the Heart they say,  for lovers, or even for single and or for everyone who are in love or who wants' to be in love.
 I made this lingerie long time ago, and I think its right to give it a shut for second time around. I will post it again for I  specially made it for this occasion. You can comment if you like it!

For summer I have a three sets of swimsuits that I made before First, the Pink printed in white flowers,


Second the Navy blue in sporty style cut,

and third, the sexy gold one.
These are all my creations some, I made them.
These fast few days I saw my son school bag, it is old and stain with the dirt . So,  I think of making him a new one.  I search for a design, I suddenly  thought that  my son really love to have a dog pet but, he can't have for it was forbidden because of his father asthma and his brother conditions.
Anyway, I made him a dog bag and he likes it very much!

Welcome to my Blog

Hi! I'm Rosalie and this is my sewing blog. I'll talk and post my creations here but before I start I'll let you in on how I start my interest in sewing.

My enthusiasm to learn and make my own clothes started when I was just a little girl. I was about 9 or 10 years old when I made my first project. I successfully made a dress for my barbie doll which made me very happy. Actually my original plan was to make a dress for myself but I don't know how to and I don't want to disturb my mother. I also don't have any fabric to use so I secretly got my mother's blouse which is soft and cool to wear. I still remember that she got a bit mad at me because that was her favorite blouse and that  she only got three back then. My mother changed her mood when she saw what I have created and said that I have the potential at what I do. She just told me that next time I should ask her permission first before I go and ruin her blouse again and that she will give me pointers on how to sew.

Little by little I learned by means of observation. I used to watch my aunt, who is a dressmaker, while she was making clothes. I also asks her every now and then how she do her measurements. I never have any formal schooling or training. What I knew in sewing is all based on self study. I have my own codes of measurement and techniques on how I can build or sew anything that comes into my mind. Maybe because this is my talent.

As I grow up, my fondness in sewing never waned down, I just stopped for a while and focus on my studies. But still the enthusiasm that I will someday make my own dresses is still there.

When I went to college I took up Banking and Finance which is in every bit not related to sewing. But still, I find ways for my favorite hobby. Sometimes I make my own clothes and one of my favorites is a red mini wrap skirt.

It was my dream that the wedding dress that I will be wearing on that very special day will be my own creation. But alas, my mother-in-law insisted that she will just buy me one. But (again), it didn't stopped me from creating one although I didn't used it. I made the gowns that were worn by some of the brides maid and the flower girls. Our motif was maroon and the gowns all turned up well.

I stopped working when me and my husband planned to have a family. I focused on becoming a plain housewife and it was then that I thought that I could use my talent as a source of income. It might not be that big but I love sewing and I'm happy with it.
