I still remember the days when Mak would buy me cheap cloth a.k.a kain, so that I can practice making things. For instance, this thick and heavy skirt only costed her RM 3. Thus, she bought them in two colours, mint green and this lavender colour.
RM 6 and I got myself two skirts ! Can you believe that ?
The normal price would be RM15++ per meter but this one was the last 3 meters and they reduced the price to RM 1 per meter. God I love how this whole reducing price system work ! Please sell more. Please please please
Besides, I would only need 3 meters to make a complete dress and I'm off with my machine.
#theperksofbeingsmall *laugh at people who have been calling me small *shove their mouth with the reduced price of kain I bought
There were times too when Mak just gave me an outdated pattern of kain (which she got for free) and let me make anything.
|Muahaha! Bow before me, peasants. For I am the lord of kain.|
It was fun though. I made pants, more skirts and more jubah/dresses. Some of the kain, with the ugly pattern which I know I won't wear to classes, were transformed into baju kelawar hahaha. Um yeaa'aah! Extra baju kelawar !
However, only recently, she had started buying me REAL kain and I instantly knew that she's finally given me the chance to roam free... I can finally inhale the air of independence... *flying out of my cage, browsing for more kain online
It was hard before. With her eyes watching every steps I took, "No, no. You should make the chest a lil bit wider," or "That's not how you handle the machine," and more 'tauke-tauke' kinda bossy nag. However, things are different now. HAHAHA. I can make anything I want.
So that's it. A short story of how Mak let me roam free :P . And yesterday, I wore the new doll kurung for our Dean's list ceremony. Mak had bought this kain last year but I only had the time to sew it during the last mid semester break.
Okayla. Not bad la. For my first attempt in doing something beside baju kurung, dresses and blouses.
|My parachute of the semester.|
Fly Anis, fly !
Both Nana and Mayra wanted me to make a pair of this dolly kurung for each of them. Well, Nana had requested it before but I kept on saying no because I was still scared. Somehow, yesterday I said, "Okay fine. Let's buy kain."
They suddenly got all jumpy and screaming, Nana immediately Google for cloth store in Penang. Oh my lord. People . Staaahhhp. Staahhpp. Gaaahh. These people la kan. Selalu over excited. Shouldn't have said yes. I am back to being scared again.
