About a year ago, @mz_hifeh came visiting for a few days. And insisted I made an outfit for her No matter how simple. Great shocker is, she gat no fabric. So she went through my stash and picked this. I almost always have fabric leftovers though I doubt this much fabric can be called a leftover. LOL. Friday came and she announced that she would wear whatever I came up with to church on Sunday. And she did follow up. She can be a pain in the neck LOL. I made it o. Finished it on Saturday after much prodding. @thempresscouture #empresscouture #theempresscouture #empresscoutureng #yourwishourstitch #fashiondesign #abujabrand #abujabrands #okebjo #olumadeit #fashiondesigner #dressmaker #patternmaker #allofmylife #thefashionacademyabuja #thefashionacademy #imadeit #slayers #ankarafashion #buddingfashiondesigner #abujafashion #yourwishourstitch

These were pictures from my first paid contract and guess what? It was from family. Big mummy believed I could do it and said she would even pay for me to make these clothes for my cousins, so the grinding began. Wasn't feeling too well at the time but still couldn't help but keep late nights to finish the work, Gush was I elated!!! F&£k fatigue! Looking back now I'm too grateful for the push she gave me, you know about that fear of taking up other people's clothes you don't want to spoil!!! Yassss!!! That was how I overcame it. Please don't wait until you think you know it all before doing it, whatever it is. There are people who will appreciate where you are and move along with you and some will cone to join you after you've "arrived" (whatever that means) Struggled with fitting though. But I could only get better. #thejourney #mylife #fashionismylife #fashionista #fashion #abujafashion #freehandcutting #freehand #fitting #dressmaking #fashiondesign #fashiondesigner #tailoring #tailor #homesewing #encouragement #push # #thestruggle
