Arrgghhhhh......

Fashion disaster.....
hmmm..not really...
Raya dress disaster actually...

I am the state of nearly-panicking...not yet panic...
Reason...- Laiqa didn't have any 'baju kurung' for this raya...
and mine is a disaster...
I went to the tailor yesterday...after receiving the text message from her, that our dresses are ready.
I sent a 'sari'(which is given to me by Mr AB's friend- which he bought in Chennai) to the tailor to 'transform' it from a sari into a loose 'kebaya' for me and a 'baju kurung' for Laiqa. As you all aware...'sari' is very long (around 5.5metre), which I estimated should be enough for the both of us.
And the finished product.....
A loose 'kebaya' for me, with a slit skirt!!! How am I gonna wear that???
And a sleeveless dress with organza skirt (which is very much similar with the one she wore to my BIL's wedding last August)! Reason she made this dress for Laiqa is that, after finished sewing my 'baju', the sari left is just aroung 0.25m... so, only enough for the body part of the dress.
She should have inform me earlier...

This really pissed me off. It's already a few days from the 'eve', and how can I alter my skirt (how to 'unslit' the 'slit') and what am I gonna do about Laiqa's 'baju kurung'??

I tried looking for ready-made 'baju kurung' for her. Went to Tesco ( since they sent flyers- that stated they are selling baju raya for kids 2years old and above). But, in the store itself, they have only for adult. I tried going to 'Greentown Mall' which is famous with ready-made baju kurung, but the traffic to get there started from the hospital (if you aren't familiar with Ipoh, It's about 1-2 kilometres from the mall itself).

I'm thinking of sewing one myself...only to be discouraged by Mr hubby.
"You still have some cookies to bake to bring back to the 'kampungs' and both side (my own family in Perak and my hubby's) requesting cupcakes for this raya. Yes...yes... lets get some cloth for you to sew....", That's what he said...rather sarcastically.

My plan- I will wear the orange dress that I wore for my BIL's wedding. And keep searching for Laiqa's.


Anyway, how about your 'baju raya'? :)

Owhhhh,pity you... I tried to put fake diamonds on my baju kurung but it turned out ugly as Arif said. So I kopek the diamonds but the glue still can be seen,argghhhhh!!!!! Talking about trial & error,heh :(

drNO said...

Gobok lama- of trial and error, I always experienced sumthing new everytime i'm trying anything. It's good though. Lain kali kita ingat la, if glue the diamonds, then take it off...gam x boleh tanggal...hehehehhe..

drNO said...

Kesiannya..parah ni raya dah dekat sangat! I found my Iqa's baju kurung at Greentown Nova- the row of new shops behind Greentown Mall, you can go there thru various ways..MBI pun boleh, but not much choice left actually. Another hope is Medan Gopeng, where parking is a bit problematic. This year I tempah my own baju kat Kuala Kangsar, kebetulan terjumpa tailor masa kerja kat situ..kain kakak hadiahkan. If you want an alternative for baju kurung, Jusco pun ada. I bought one long cotton blouse (macam punjabi sikit) for me at Jusco to wear with jeans sebab I rimas pakai kain..yalah masa raya tu dahlah nak pegi banyak rumah, dengan anak2 dan baby lagi..I tak tahan kain2 satin, sutera atau sari ni..panas. Harap2 you can find a solution..anyway, takde baju raya pun raya tetap raya!

drNO said...

Hliza- thanks. dah bukak ye shophouses kat belakang greentown mall tu? x try pegi situ pun semlm,pegi greentown mall- tgk Q jem nk masuk parking berderet2, terus patah balik.
medan gopeng-mmg mls nk gi situ, susah parking.
I pun if beli sendiri will pilih kain yg thn lasak n x pyh iron..ye la kan, kita ni nk dukung anak la, apa la,
Tp sari ni, since org yg bg... (n it's brown...huhuuhuh...dia x tau ke kita ni pun kaler brown???)

drNO said...

Hliza- u tempah kat kuala tu ok x?
jahit n price ok?
time mula2 pindah ipoh dulu, terjumpa this tailor masa kelam kabut nk tempah baju, tailor lain tutup @ x jumpa time tu. terus la asyik tempah dgn dia. tp mahal giler...or is it the current price?? tp jahitan dia mmg la sgt kemas.

huhu..
good luck..!
go sis..go..!
klu kat sini xde jual baju kurung or kain baju kurung..mejoriti kain yg ade kat sini utk musin sejuk..so mmg tebal..pastu plain colour je..xde bunge2..so..what i'll do is..try to wear a cream plain coloured long skirt with cream plain coloured tudung..or any colour that suits the baju or bunge at the baju kurung..

drNO said...

cik bawang-lamanya nk sampai baju raya cik bawang. kuih raya ada x?

kita pun nk mintak maaf jugak la kat cik bawang selama mengacau di 'rumah' cik bawang tuh...

pat said...

waduh,berbisa sungguh kata2 itu...sabar je kak...dah dapat baju raya ke skang ni?

Wawa said...

drNo, good luck in your quest.

saya dah pasrah to not having any baju melayu for my baby boy.

Umar? pakai baju raya tahun lepas je lah.

after all raya tetap raya despite the baju raya.

HLiza said...

sori lambat jawab. Harga rm45 baju kurung biasa dgn piping sikit je..bolehlah tahan gak kemas. Tak arif sgt market price sbb I biasa beli..selalu lupa nak cari kain dan tempah.

drNO said...

pat- blum dpt lg.
semlm tgk kat satu kedai tu, xde saiz laiqa lak.



wawa- blum dpt lg baju laiqa... beli saiz besar kan, next year boleh pakai lg.


Hliza- that is very cheap. Yg I tempah kat Ipoh, baju kurung biasa rm70 rasanya. if dia ltk lining, lagi la jadik rm100. lps ni kena carik tailor lain la pulak.
