DIY : 'vintage dress' clutch

There are some old clothes belong to my mom that still nice to wear, although a bit smelly and yellowish, but if it had been washed, maybe the people wouldn't think that it was a old clothes :) Unfortunately, the clothes that I found, it was slightly smaller than my size, and there're some short skirts because my mom didn't wear hijab yet at that time, so i couldn't wear all of it because as you know, i'm a moslem who wear a hijab. Was i desperate? No, because i want to keep wear it in another form.
 I persuaded my mom to give me some, and start to makeover that stuff to be something new ^o^


there are some sewing with a machine and the others sewing by hand...

Sssttt... a little secret, this is the first time my work  use a sewing machine, so please be understood that the results aren't as neat as you imagine :p hehehe

DIY : 'Songket' Necklace and Bracelet

Songket! I don't know why I was so infatuated with the fabric pattern on this one. I found it when I was unpacking my mom wardrobe about a year ago, and  finally a few weeks ago, it could be sewn by my aunt to made into a skirt. So i am really excited for it :D

Yeah, this Songket is originally from my hometown, West Sumatera (Minangkabau), Indonesia. 
A bit about Songket, It's a kind of woven traditional Malay and Minangkabau in Indonesia, and other countries such as Malaysia and Brunei. It usually woven by hand with gold and silver threads. and did you know? to create an exclusive songket cloth takes about three months, and for ordinary songket only takes about three days.Wow! and previously, the only royal family who has it, and it usually worn when there are custom ceremonies. So no wonder I called it 'Songket' is Exceptional Heritage.
Currently, when had been discovered synthetic gold thread, the price becomes more varied, ranging from the expensive to the affordable. And now the Songkets are not only for the the royal family, but also can be worn for all of us :D

Songket is usually made ​​into a skirt, but for DIY, I will make it something different. Necklace and bracelet!
Enjoy it! :D
