My sewing began when I started a basic course at the Fashion Institute of the Philippines, sometime in February of this year. The classes are once a week and the results of my first (or second day?) are here. I sent the photo to my mum whose response was “wow you need to learn”. Off to a good start, wasn’t I?

In the next class I practiced darts, seams and zippers on the muslin. Mum’s response to the zipper photo was “beautiful”. Either way, I was feeling quite proud, but I will admit a bit curious as to of how I was going to make a pencil skirt (next on the project) given that the industrial juki seemed to have a mind of it’s own and more than half my time was spent in dealing with the bobbin, threading the needle and other difficult tasks.

If anyone ever reads this, let this be a reminder that your day 1 was probably not as bad. I’m glad I am able to spread joy in the world.
