MAXI SKIRT-MALASIAKO ESTRENOA

Gabonetan Australiatik bueltan Malasian egin genuen geldialdia eta goiz oso bat pasa nuen telen kalean Pretty Woman bezela, eskuak poltsez beteta nituela. Esperientzia izugarria izan zen! Dendan sartu orduko langile bat nere atzetik etortzen zen, eta edozein gauza behar nuenean hor zeuden neri laguntzeko, baina molestatu gabe. Neri ez zait normalean gustatzen dendetan jarraitzea baina bi aukera nituen, inkomodo egotea edo ohitu eta disfrutatzea. Bigarrena egin nuen eta ederki pasa nuen!

On the way back from Australia this Christmas we had a stop-over in Malaysia, and I spent a whole morning fabric shopping, feeling like Pretty Woman. It was a great experience! As soon as I went in the shop I had a shop assistant following me, to help me with everything I needed but without bothering me. I don't usually like having people following me but I had two options, to feel uncomfortable or to get used to it and enjoy the experience. I chose the second option and I loved it!




Egia esan, kostatu zait tela berriei eskua sartzea, ez dakit hain politak eta bereziak direlako beldurra ematen zidan edo finak direlako, agian horregatik errezenetik hasi naiz. 

It took me a while to get my hands onto the fabrics, either because they are thin, and we are in the middle of winter here, or because they are so special and I was scared to stuff it up. So, I started with the easiest one.


Patroiaren ideiak buruan nituen eta igande goizean mutil denak rugbyan zeuden bitartean lanean jarri nintzen eta ti-ta egin nuen. Patroiak inprobisatzearen arazoa da bukatu arte ez duzula emaitza ikusten, nola gelditzen zaizun eta gehienetan berandu da aldaketa haundiak egiteko. Goiko aldean zuzen xamarra egin dut eta gero fruntzeak eta beheraka zabaldu. Hurrengorako goiko aldea motzagoa egingo dut eta gehiago zabalduz goitik ya. Ia nola gelditzen den hurrengoa. 

I had the pattern pretty clear in my mind, and while all my boys were at the rugby on Sunday morning, I got straight onto this skirt and finished it very quickly. The problem with improvising patterns is that you can't see how it will fit until it's finished and most times it's too late to make big changes. The top bit is quite straight and then it goes out. Next time I will make the top part shorter and wider. We'll have to wait and see.



Egiten ditudan gauza guztiei bezela nere marka personala jarri diot, ardi latxa.

I always put my personal tag to everything I make, it's a Basque sheep. 



Eta aste honetan bertan iritsi zaidan "eskuz egina" ko egurrezko "botoia" (??). Txiki xamarra da baina ze polita!!!

And I also put the wooden "handmade" tag I received this week. It's pretty small but I like it.



Argazkiak egiteko noiz hobe, Australiako egunean baino? Eguraldi zoragarria atera da, hemen ia urtero egun horretan egiten duen bezela eta inspiratu naiz .

No better day to take photos than on Australia Day. It was a gorgeous day, as it's usual on that day here most years, so I got inspired.

Bukatzeko, nere Australiar gogokoenarekin argazkia atera dut . Happy Australia Day! Eta goazen rums-era!

To finish off, a lovely selfie with my favourite Aussie. Happy Australia Day! And let's rums!
