Made my floral pants!

One night after work, I rolled out my grid paper, took out my pants block from my closet and pulled out my quarter scale note book and drafted a pair of pants.

Early in the morning I started cutting the fabric, serging the seams and put it all together.
Pants with slit pockets, coin pocket, five belt loops, a waistband and a fly front!
These are by far, my best made pair of pants :)!
Felt so accomplished 7 hours later...

Her Beautiful Day!

I can't believe it has been over a year since I first met this Bride and I started designing these Bridesmaid dresses for her! The day finally came and I was so honoured to have been invited! 
It was a beautiful outdoor venue and she planned the cutest decorations from a family tree portrait on a tree, to games such as a giant Janga set! 
Not to mention a very elegant and homey banquet afterwards. 

I couldn't resist the cute photo booth haha.


p.s. last Friday my bf and I stayed in and watched a Marilyn Manroe film with a box of Mama's Pizza,
I am a little ashamed to say I've never watched any of her movies! 
Even though it has no Hollywood effect (or colour) it was still an entertaining watch. "Misfits" also happened to be her last finished movie, the morning after I watched many youtube videos of her life and her tragic ending... Anyway, the movie was fun, at times a bit irritating because of her helpless and ditzy character, but I'll let it go, it was the 60s. haha. And she IS stunning!

Texas. and stuff.


SO, a summary of Dallas, Texas?
Lots of Highways, trees, and downtown is dead with a lot of new modern townhouses and infrastructures popping up. Reminds me a little of Downtown Toronto East. Minus people. Minus cute boutique.
And yes, everything is huge. But it's like a Huge mammoth store and then emptiness for miles.
Heard public transportation was put in place not that long ago, I can't even fathom how someone can exist here without a car.

Food wise, had a lot of Korean food, and Mexican food, and ofc my family did the steakhouses while I ate my salad. We also hunted down Chinatown (a resident friend here didn't even know there was one, that's how small it is). There was also complimentary breakfast and dinner at our hotel so didn't get to try too too much food.

I guess I can't really give a great depiction as I was mostly here to help out my uncle set up a business (which is actually a fashion wholesales company so I was hanging out in the getto wholesale area of Harry Hines haha)so all work and no fun (also not legal drinking age [ how crazy !? I've done so much in my life and feel uber old but am still considered a minor in the states!] not that I'm not about to go partying with my dad), however I got to squeeze some time out to visit two flea markets and some antique stores!
sorry for the confusion above as it's not from Texas. Grand Electric and Toronto A La Carte: Korean Food Truck (Steeles and Yonge) are foodies in Toronto that are so amazing! Also thought I should share this crazy strawberry soup I made with strawberries, wine and sour cream. It was pretty yummy. Link to recipe is here. Also said goodbye to my butterfly dress as I sold it to a customer!


p.s. For my beloved Torontonian!!
