And yeah, I'm a born and bred Singaporean How did you know?
You mentioned zoukout, so it's not really a wild guess. It's either you're a singaporean or malaysian (where I live)
Finding good fabric in Malaysia is super super hard, because most of the patterns are skewed to the traditional baju kurung style and they have very few awesome printed cottons. I meant to go to singapore to stock up on my fabric stash, but haven't been able to. I can't wait though!
did you base all your dresses on something you owned? or did you make it up and created the pattern for it?
