Baju kurung KAFA

I was asked to do a last minute baju kurung for secondary school. Only 1 baju kurung, 😂. So here it is. I will make the girl to wear and pose for me if i could persuade her anyway.  

For the lack of post. Im sorry. 



Fulfilling order

11 January 2017

Whole Sarawak is mourning over the demise of the people’s chief minister. May he laid in peace.

Sarawak was declared a public holiday on 12th January 2017 in respect of the Chief Minister memorial service.  In the meantime,  I manage to complete customer order on making the classic baju kurung. 

Tadaaa. Here is the progress. Pinning is crucial. Teheee. 

The complete kurung. 

Till next time, 
p/s: backlog cause my internet was so ‘siput’. This post was supposed to be up on the 12th January 2017. 

Baju opah


yesterday, I’m taking my friend’s order on doing the baju opah for her mother. I forgot to take the picture on how I made it because I forgot that I had started this blog. Here is the finished picture:

I also purchased the new coulourful bobbin thread holder that costs less than RM 20. The 1 bobbin holder is full already. Never thought that my project cost colourful thread. Or as never thought that i start taking order on sewing. How cute is this? 

Order in line. 

  • Baju kurung
  • Repair zipper for bag
  • Repair zipper for school trousers
  • Repair trousers

Installing Invisible Zipper

Before I laid my head to rest, before I ended my day today, and before I have nothing to say because I’m still in the process of learning and not an expert like any other sewer out there, I am happily,  announcing that I passed installing invisible zipper with my first trial with the help of youtube. How happy and proud of myself for pulling it through. Never thought that I will use such technique (I am overreating, right? 🙌)

I did my sewing on sunday evening after spending my whole day napping😯. So,  yes,  I am very slow in progressing after the christmas holidays.I have to get my momentum back and bring the spirits everywhere I go. 😱.

So,  here is a picture of what I am doing this 2 days. Ya, I know i am slow like that.

. FYI,  I am not a fulltime sewist.

Installing zipper like an expert (*wink*wink*)


Till next time,

I am going to sleep.



p/s: late post. problem with publishing.

First blog post

Hi, Happy New Year 2017. This is officially my first trial to blog. I have been thinking about blogging about my “Sewn By Shirley” project since I got my internet back. Thanks to  the Telekom for doing so. Okay, actually i am so mad at them because I have been asking for re-location almost 1 year ago.

Being me, I personally never thought that I actually sew as my second income. I own a Brother GS2700 and Brother 3034D and at first I purchase both baby just for fun. Staying alone and scrolling through blog, youtube and pinterest somehow giving me the idea to start the project at first i collected scrap fabric that my Mommy keep for ages.

Then, Now Is What Happen.
