finally, i decided to make some modification to the chima so that alya can wear it with ease. alya is tall and slim. i think she will look fabulous in hanbok.
apart from the hanbok, i also made a pair of baju kurung moden each for alya and lisa. i made a sloper for both alya and lisa (i referred to this book that was written by lucia mors de castro).
and then i made the 1st prototype of the baju kurung for them. once i am ok with how they look on them, i cut the actual fabric.
here are some of the photos (i only managed to photograph alya's. lisa was away at college) :-
|this is the pattern of alya's sloper on paper|
|front view of the actual sloper....based on the pattern paper. |
i love to see how well it fits alya.
|side view of the sloper. nice. |
and alya told me that it feels comfortable.
|the 1st prototype...i am very pleased with |
the way the sleeve hangs. the fit of the sleeve head is almost perfect.
and alya (being a very tough critic) told me that it feels comfortable.
|full front view of the 1st prototype. |
i love the way it envelopes alya. not too tight not too loose.
i am definitely very pleased with the result.
i just had to edit this photo and paste some daisies here
to hide the "not so pretty background" :)
|alya put on the baju kurung moden i made for her. |
it was 1st day of eid 2012.
|alya and lisa putting on the |
baju kurung moden i made for them that 1st day of eid 2012.
i think they look fabulous.
i have to say it again...i just love the way the sleeves hang.
i think i did a pretty good job.
