Two weeks ago, I finally got the chance to meet up with some of the Big Shot contestants (Ferry, Daniel and Liew). We were all ready for the filming of the trailer for Big Shot Season 2 at the Singapore Flyer.

We had great fun together. And Ferry helped me took some photos while we were waiting for our turns.

And also, not forgetting to take the chance to take a picture together with the ESPN host, Kui Jien.

Lastly, not to forget to remind all that the Big Shot Season 2 is coming. Do give it a try and you stand a chance to win $20,000. Great learning opportunity and exposure! You never know if you are the next ‘Big Shot’!!

Last photo to share here is a cute little cat photo taken after the filming that day:

Poodle Scallop Skirt

The first time I came across Chie’s blog was through grosgrain blog when grosgrain was doing this free tutorials series for a whole month. Her scallop skirt is just so sweet and cute that I decided instantly to do it when I first saw it.

The instruction for this skirt given by Chie was very straight forward. However, if you have not done an invisible zip before, you may probably need some guidance elsewhere. This is my first time doing something with scallop design and this was made easy by chie’s clear instruction.

The fabric I used was bought from Chinatown at a discounted price of SGD$4 per yard. While I was cutting up this pattern, I remembered a vintage green flannel skirt with poodle I saw before at a vintage store. The price was over a hundred and I didn’t find it worth getting. And so, I took this opportunity to create my own vintage poodle skirt.

The poodle and strap embellishment was hand sew on. I really love this cute lovely skirt. Thanks Chie and grosgrain for sharing this free pattern. Have a look at chie’s blog; she’s a very talented young mother with her own line of clothings and also go to grosgrain blog for endless inspirations and wonderful sharings. The pattern for this skirt can be found in grosgrain blog which also has many other tutorials for you to try on. (I will be sharing soon on the sorbetto top – which you can also find the free tutorial there)

Also, must thanks my friend, Jas, for helping me take the photos of me wearing the skirt.
