Nada : “ I want a dress like this. Can you jahit (sew) for me, Mom?”Mommy : “Huh? What’s this? Can you explain how you want the dress to be?”
Nada : “Owh.. I want many colours. Have red, purple, blue, orange…. Pink!. See, like I draw.”
Mommy : “Hmmm.. that’s good choice of colours. What about the bottom? You want frills?”
Nada : “Ya, just little bit. I don’t want so much. Later, I lemas! (uncomfortable).
And so, this Mommy put on her thinking cap and cracked her head. I think I got it.
We then on one Saturday head to Jalan TAR and I purchased plain cottons mostly only 1 meter each. Slightly frustrated that after I purchased the red, purple blue, pink and green plain cottons at Nagoya with price tag RM 5.50 per meter.. only to find out I could have at Kamdar for RM 2.50 per meter. Chech! Talk about quality, I don’t see much difference. I only bought orange colour cotton at Kamdar! Just hate being in the sort of ‘regret’.
The next day on Sunday, I sew the dress and it turned out to be :
A Colour block dress, Not bad, huh? I was contemplating either to use or not the much love white linen that I bought in Japan for this dress. But then again, would I not use it for my favorite girl ... who else ?
I now can strike out play dress from my list.
