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.
