Leisure Sewing: Peplum Shorts

A friend shared with me this super cute tutorial from Crafting Zuzzy, on how to sew a Peplum shorts for girls. Peplum! My sister laughed when I told her that I'm making a peplum shorts, "Babies in peplum?"
Haha why not? Ladies all over the world was crazy over peplum especially last year, during the Eid celebration almost half of the ladies I met wore peplum dress.

All geared up, i cut the fabrics the very next day and started sewing. The pattern size is for 12-18mo toddler. My niece is at home so maybe I can get her to try this shorts for me.  

The tutorial is pretty easy to understand and follow, so I guess this is something that beginners can pull off for their first sewing project. I know some excited mothers who want to sew & make stuff for their child. 

Here's the outcome! My niece refused to try it on, so I put it on to her newborn sister instead haha.

Survey: Pelikat Big Butt Pants

This is my version on Big Butt Pants designed by Rae from Made by Rae

Instead of normal cotton, i used the kain pelikat (sarong) which is normally worn by the guys in Malaysia. The fabric is not thick, airy and very comfortable to wear in hot & humid weather we have in Malaysia. As the sarong normally available in large size for adults or smaller size for kids, babies don't get to wear kain pelikat. So, I came up with this idea to make comfy big butt pants from this material. 

I made a few for friends and family, and I've been receiving few requests to order this pants. So I decided to make a few of them for sale, but I need your help to decide on what size should I make. I don't have the time to make all six sizes so I will only make 2 or 3 most popular sizes for sale. And they won't be a lot, only about 5 pieces per size. 

So do let me know if you wish to get this pants, you may leave a comment here, or via email, or you can drop by at my Instagram page and leave your vote there. You may end up getting your baby a pelikat pants for FREE...! :) 

Till then, have a great Monday!
