Chapter 624: New Clothing

“Make it a dress, and have it looser. I want to be able to bring out my slim figure when I’m thin, and yet can still wear it when I’m pregnant,” Bai Qingqing said.
Curtis tilted his head and thought about it. “I’ll cut open both sides by the waist, then use a thin strap to tie around the stomach?”
Bai Qingqing imagined it for a moment, then her expression cracked. Damn, it’s really revealing!
“Don’t, don’t, don’t! Don’t fool around!” Bai Qingqing refused.
Curtis took the measurements, then gave additional room for Bai Qingqing to “grow fatter.” He then gently slit with his nails, cutting the snakeskin that was indestructible by both water and fire. He coiled on the floor and carefully sewed the dress while curling his tail around her.
Bai Qingqing had nothing to do, so she stared as he made the clothing. Seeing that he was about to sew the straps, she started to make things difficult again.
“I want lace on the side. Sew laces on the straps using thin thread.”
Hmph! Who asked you to scare me!
Curtis looked at her, seemingly baffled. “What are laces like? How do I sew them?”
“Uhhh…” Bai Qingqing gave it some thought. “I think… sew the edges tightly with thread to make folds.”
“Are you sure you want it like that?” Curtis’s gaze landed on her shoulder’s fair skin. He raised his hand and touched it gently. Bai Qingqing found it itchy and tried to wriggle and dodge.
“I’m worried that your skin might get hurt from it,” Curtis said. They had been mates for two years, and he now had a deep understanding of how fragile females were.
Bai Qingqing gave it some thought, then quickly shook her head. “Forget it.”
Although Curtis’s snakeskin was thin, it was heavy as if it had been embellished with gold thread. It was better for the shoulder straps, that were used to hold up the weight, to be flatter.
However, Bai Qingqing was unhappy that she didn’t manage to make things difficult for him.
Curtis smiled dotingly and tugged off a strand of hair, then started sewing on the straps.
“Hey! I don’t want laces anymore!” Bai Qingqing wanted to stop him, but the latter moved his tail and sent her next to Parker.
Parker was elated. He hugged Bai Qingqing, not letting her go. “I’ll comb your hair for you.”
Her waist-length long hair was troublesome to comb. Bai Qingqing was happy to have someone comb it.
She had been planning to cut it off. They had brought back her bag from the City of Beastmen the other time, so she didn’t end up doing it as she now had a comb.
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes at Curtis, then quietly laid in Parker’s embrace while rummaging through her bag.
The things were still around but had traces of aging. She even managed to find her phone. It couldn’t start up anymore. The most surprising thing was that the mirror was still intact.
She looked at her reflection. Her face still looked like that of a young girl, but she had less baby fat on her cheeks and her face had become slimmer.
It must be the effect of green crystals. Jean also looked like a young girl despite her old age.
Bai Qingqing threw an unconscious glance in Curtis’s direction and, to her surprise, she noticed that the lace that Curtis was holding onto looked very good.
Suppressing the happiness in her heart, Bai Qingqing pretended as if she didn’t care and said, “It’s not bad. Do it all over the hems of the dress, then.”
Curtis smiled and looked at her, saying, “Alright.”
Bai Qingqing felt a little bad bullying Curtis when he was being so good-tempered.
After seeing the completed product, Bai Qingqing couldn’t continue with the act anymore. She held onto her stomach and walked over, staring at the clothing, unable to turn her eyes away.
The straps on the dress weren’t the thin straps with folds that she saw at the beginning, but a flat strap two fingers wide. The straps with folds were sewn onto both sides of the wide straps, making them into laces on both sides.
It wasn’t just the shoulder straps. There were also suitable laces on the chest area and the hems of the dress.
