I grew up loving to sew. I always noticed the seams on dresses, trying to see how it how it was joined to make the dress. That was as early as my secondary school days. So i actually made my first dress while I was in SS3 I think…. with needle n thread 🙂 it was lovely but looked more like a run way dress so i did not wear it out.
Well, the space between after secondary school and uni i went to train in a tailors shop and that was where i got my first formal training. I started out sewing paper lol. did paper skirts n children dress with paper. i learnt very fast cos of course the interest was there. Well that’s how i started. While in uni did little or nothing on sewing but yeah i made a bag with ankara i recall i did all night on that bag and guess what? after making the bag it was taken by the school. Well after NYSC i sort of started sewing more seriously. The story continues…. I uploaded some of my works on burdastyle.com. check them out… beautiful dress click here and a dinner gown also here
I noticed that i usually would need an occasion before i get motivated to sew. And if you know me personally i sort of have routine life so no outing as such…thanks to my amazing job! but i would looove to sew….
well… i got a great idea! Friday is now officially my occasion day….bola’s day. It’s my day to dress up with Bolasews‘ outfit so, as long as there is a Friday in the week i have an occasion to sew for and I am forever motivated! yippee!!!
