I am Tiffany, wife to my super husband, mama to my lovely daughter, living in Singapore. I am also a leisure seamstress, educator, musician and geographer.

Why dressmaking? I am a picky shopper and my body shape is not the easiest to shop for. Tailor-make is the best way to go! I have also always wanted to turn bundles of cloths into wearable pieces since young. It was finally a dream come true in February 2010 when I began my lessons at Kadomay. No turning back ever since! At Kadomay, I also learned to draft patterns. Hence majority of my sewing projects are self drafted. Some of my favourites that are reflected in my sewing projects: colours, cheongsams, dresses, laces. I have a secret love for Paris and all things French. I dream of constructing a me-made wardrobe one day, filled with clothes that are minimalist, sophisticated, elegant, to be worn at any time of day (Coco Chanel).

This blog started as a platform for me to document my sewing journey and random ramblings. As I practised dressmaking over the past 5 years, I rediscovered the joy of making things especially through my wedding preparations. I made my own wedding dress, and planned and diy-ed the decorations for the actual day. Besides sewing and crafting, I will also be sharing some of my thoughts on parenting, enjoyments and homemade projects that I embark on with and for our little friend, and our little adventures in the kitchen.

I hope you enjoy reading this humble space of mine!

      Hi Stacey,

      I drafted the pattern myself. If you are familiar with a basic skirt block, I could explain how to go about doing it via email, at hunnyxpot@gmail.com.

      Yup, definitely! You can call them at 62213191 to enquire more

    Hello, I seek your guidance on sourcing an elegant beaded bridal fabric that is not lace. I live in Houston, Texas and there are no high end fabric stores in the area. I am looking for a sheer off-white silk or netting heavily beaded with bugle beads. I would very much appreciate your advice! Thank you!

      Hi Julia,

      Congratulations on the wedding! You may like to try fabrics.com (free shipping within USA for orders $35 and above), etsy (it’s like a handmade version of eBay), or moodfabrics.com (designer goodies) to source for your fabrics. I am residing in Singapore and have not been to the States or Houston before so I’m afraid that I can’t help you with in-store selections. Hope these help!

      Hello Jess,

      Such a pleasure to hear from you. I would love to recommend where I picked up dressmaking but unfortunately my teacher has retired. You may like to try Yi Chiah Tailoring & Dressmaking Institute. You can also like to check out Burdastyle online tutorials.

      On places to shop for fabrics, definitely Chinatown! You can check out some of my favourite shops here (https://sewwhatt.wordpress.com/fabric-finds/).

      Thank you for your kind words. They definitely motivates me to find time to sew 🙂
