A new sweater for fall ...

Hi dollies!

I admit I have not been on the sewing table for quite a long time now.
But, but, but!
I spent many days compiling my fabrics,
sketching new outfits,
and today, prototyping...

And this is what I have come up with >>>

A sweater perfect for the fall and winter time :)

I am aiming to produce a good few pieces in the next few days,
and list them in my Etsy store before weekend.

So for now, here are some pics of Sue as she happened to drop by today.
Let me know what you think about it, too, okies?

Thanks and have a great weekend, dollies!

Wow! It's been a long time since I shared with you
the latest dolly pics I have collected
from our friends.

I hope I didn't make you wait that long :)
I had been doing lots of preparation,
not only new designs but strategies
as to how I can sustain this hobby
further. Like forever.
Just you wait.. teehee..

Anyways, here are some of the photos that I have scouted.
I hope you like them!

That's all for now, folks!

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!!!

Cece Goes to the Mall

Hey you, dollies! What are you up to this weekend?
I'm sure it's gonna be something exciting, no?

As for me and the girls here at the atelier,
as always, weekends will be fun and work, all rolled into one.
And what more appropriate way to start it right,
than to, well, mix fun and work still,
but somewhere that's of a different view.

Cece and I went to the mall one Friday to watch the movie,
It was a great movie, at least for fans like me and Cece.
Cece may not look it, but the girl is a martial arts black belt.

Anyhoo, before we lay our tired but excited bodies unto
the lazyboy-like reclining chairs at the cinema,
I had brought Cece along to the "work" part of this activity.

Scroll down for more of the selfies Cece took.
It's a lot down there so just enjoy, okies?

At our favorite fabric shop...

The Fabric Warehouse, SM Megamall

Cece feasting her eyes on the ocean of fabrics, assisted here by Ate Cora.

Cece became an instant celebrity posing here with the TFW staff

After getting our fabrics, Cece then dragged me to some place "to greet some old friends."

"These boys chose to be celebrities, so their lives are now for the public to view.", she says.
"Me? I can sport my hair like this (proudly waving her messy hair), and nobody cares! Haha!"

This one here, though apparently enjoys being placed in a glass rack.
Os is he just JOKER-ing?"

Then a quick stop at Carolina's, a haven for crafters, and fashion designers alike

Some girly time at the VS store...

And after all the strolling around the mall, the call of the palate happened...
Gyuudon for dinner, inspired by the movie we will watch later..
Ready to get inside the Director's Club, stretch my legs unto those lazyboy-like reclining chairs and watch...

Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends
And so that's how me and the girls typically spend our weekends.
A day is never productive, if it's all just work - there's gotta be some fun injected in, right?

So, buh-bye for now, from me and Cece.
I hope you enjoy your weekends, too...

And finally, atelierniSHASHA presents… the 2014 anniversary dress!

Violet wearing it while the sun is up…
Anais, on the other hand, had clubbing in mind…

Did I keep you waiting, guys?
And if I did, please bear as things had been a little messy around the atelier.
Whose functional atelier looks spick and span, anyways? Teehee…

Anywhoo, before I share with you the rest of the photos I took with Violet wearing it on daytime and Anais during the evening, let me tell you briefly about the inspiration of this dress.

Basically, this is a spin-off off a dress I made for myself a couple of years back.
When I wore it to a wedding and had my husband take photographs of me (well, he insisted it! Haha!), I received quite a handful yet sincere comments about it.

I guess it was the choice of print and fabric material.
When I first saw the fabric, I already knew what to do with it.
It was love AND instant design, at first sight!
I’m only 5’2” but the prints looked endless, and in some way transformed me.

Not only did my friends and family liked this dress,
I loved it! I was proud of it despite my rather poor assembly skills as you can see.
The idea that I designed it for myself and that it turned out well, inspired me even more.

And fast forward two years later, here we go.
A new dress inspired from it.

I know the 2013 anniversary dress was such a versatile one.
That was kind of hard to beat, actually.
But for this one, it may be a little off to wear in broad daylight,
but it was a brainchild of my love for comfortable clothing and having fun.
I enjoyed making this one as well, tweaking and giving it a twist.

So, what do you think?


Til next time, Dollies!!!
