Book Flip Through Video – Home Couture Process Sewing

January 7, 2020

Happy New Year!

As some of you might have realized (as I did myself), I have not posted in months… Just too many things to take care of on the home front last year beginning from a house renovation project, followed by exams and then the school holidays. This year is particularly challenging for me even though all 3 kids will be in school, we have a new schedule to follow, new places to go to and so far after testing it out for 3 days it’s not looking good for sewing! Those of you who follow me on IG will see me post on and off about sewing projects but I’m not sure if I will even have time to sew anything for CNY this year 😭

I do have a bunch of books that I have yet to review so I think the fastest way I can share with you will be to take book flip through videos. Slight change of style going forward, I will be posting videos followed by book info – like number of projects, size range, author/publisher and purchasing info (affiliate link). I hope this will be enough for you in the meantime while I try to sort things out and find more time for sewing!

Today’s flip through video is by Machiko Kayaki, author of Simple Chic. This book is all about couture techniques. Proper sewing and finishing methods for that extra couture touch. Great for perfectionists! I picked this book up in Sapporo while on holiday last month, it’s a pretty new book so I hope you will like it! More book details after the video.

1-week break!

September 3, 2012

We’re having a week of school holidays over here in Singapore. Which means no more waking up at 6am for a week (yay!) but no 2-hr free time in the morning to blog.

So I’ve decided to take a break from the usual blog schedule this week so that I can spend more time with my kids. I’ve been feeling it lately, that the kids are growing up too fast and before I know it, their school holidays will be swamped with school activities and I won’t even get to see them if I wanted to.

What I will try to do this week is to work on some of the little design changes that I have been wanting to do for a long time but never got round to doing. So you might see some changes here are there but hopefully it doesn’t turn out to be something major 🙂 Oh, and get a little book shopping done 🙂

Will be back with regular blog posts next Monday. See you then!
