"Baju Malu Malu"

Recently my lil Maya likes to take off all her clothes... for no reason.. could be the weather is too hot.. or sometimes when she spills a little water on her dress.. she will definitely pull down her t-shirt from the neck until her chest and leave it there exposing her shoulders... and said "malu.. malu.. kan mama?" -- meaning "shame on me, right mama?" Too bad i didnt manage to capture her shots when she did that.. by the time i got my cam.. everything is off already!

So I made this "malu malu dress" for her so that she won't expand her t-shirt neck bands...

A simple cotton shirred dress, using an elastic thread inside.

At least she's happy.. but she refuses to wear this long though... I guess she feels too exposed.. and shy to wear it..

Nana, i used the cheap with no brand type of elastic thread.

1)Make sure you hand wind the thread to the bobbin

2) if your bobbin is too tight, loosen it up a lil bit so that the the thread does not get stuck in the bobbin holder (skoci)

3) change your stitch length to bigger stitches

4) try it out, or you can search from the net for "shirred dress tutorial"

Hope it helps
