|sketching the dress i chose to make|
|got myself REAL tailoring scissors|
i walked into a room full of ladies tugging on yards of fabric,
working the sewing machines, measuring... Snuck into a seat
at the island in the middle of the room, looked around and grinned.
I thought it'll be a class of maybe 40-somethings but hey hey, the
girls around were mostly my age!
The instructor has 30yrs of experience under her belt. She drew
perfect curves freehand. We dived right into sewing dresses of
our choice, of which most of us weren't prepared for. Fortunately
i had a 'lookbook' album on my iPhone. So i went through it and
chose a dress :)
The instructor took my measurements, drafted out the pattern on
brown paper and pinned it to fabric. All this done in super speed :D
A girl in the intermediate class was sewing a maxi dress... she's cool.
She was very willing to share tips and stuff... i need to be her
friend! awahhahaa... Her nails were painted black... She wore a checked
shirt with ruffles on the chest and skinny jeans. Right up my alley :)
My classmates n i were fast friends. After class, we all walked to
the MRT station together, grabbed bread buns and bubble tea then sat
down to chat a bit. It was lovely. We call ourselves the fashion
buddies :) cheers to our sewing ambitions!!!
