Brocaded Box Pleats & Future Posts

The holiday season is here, and along with that, comes holiday sewing.  Right now, I'm working on a new winter coat, a brocade skirt, and a hooded cape.  I have a tendency to get to a certain point in the project and then need to stop and reflect, hence the partial projects.

Anyhoo, here's a look at the brocade box pleats project:
Thinking this might work well for a holiday party

I'd also let to get back in the groove of sharing some of my favorite Mom's Kitchen recipes like Chinese Fish Fillets, Black Sesame Dessert w/ Glutinous Rice Balls, Homemade Rice Noodle Rolls, etc.  If there are any Cantonese / Chinese recipes you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if Mom has one to share :)

Have a lovely week!

  1. Glutinous rice balls and rice rolls are some of my favorite dimsum items! If you have a great egg tart recipe to share, that would be great too. Thx! :)

    1. Ooh, we are in need of an egg tart recipe too! Mom has tried, but so far, it's still better to make the trek to Golden Gate Bakery :)

  4. That brocade skirt, how exactly would you style it? I have a similar fabric, but I've held off on making anything of it since I don't know how I would style it.

    1. Hi! Since the fabric is so ornate, I think I'd keep the top pretty simple - maybe a cropped white sweater with tights and heels in the winter. If wearing in warmer times, maybe a simple white sleeveless blouse and sandals.

I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
