Look back a year ago...

So I've been really sewing for almost a year.  Well, I took a long break for about 6 months LOL.  But it's been a year since I started sewing.  I was just reading the "About Me" section and it said "I hope one day I can make something for me to actually wear to work...

Well, that hope is now happening.  I can actually sew some shirts that I can wear to public and proud to say that I made it.  Thanks to my Dad, my very own sewing teacher. 

Now, next goal is to make the inside of the garments look nice haha... 

So now my closet has 2 dresses  and 5 shirts that I made for myself that I can actually wear.  WOW!!!  This is a miracle for me.  I can't believe that one day I can actually sew something for me.

Actually I have so many more goals

- make the inside look nice
- learn to make a skirt
- learn to make pants
- learn to sew with thin sheer fabric
- learn to make sleeves
- learn to make a traditional Vietnamese long dress aodai
so many more to learn


I hope Dad will pass to me everything he knows  =)
Seems like I'm the only one in the family who's interested in sewing. 

This time last year, I asked my husband's aunt, who graduated from fashion / design school, that how long will it take for me to sew a dress for me to wear, or sew a wedding dress like she did for herself for her wedding.  --- I can't make a wedding dress, but I can make a dress haha... So, I guess the answer is 1 year.

By the time my daughter gets married, I can make her a wedding dress with no problem.
