So a few weeks back I had the opportunity to attend a Kimono Outerwear making class. I was really nervous the day before and told my husband about it (almost wanted to cancel out). Even though sewing scares me, a part of me still want to create things through sewing.
If you see the outerwear I made above, you think it looks nice. But if you look closely, you see some random thread still haven’t cut off, the length of the front is actually one side shorter than the other and the sewing inside…hmm jangan cakap lah eh. Berterabur! At the end of the day however, I’m still proud of what I’ve done and proud that I ignored my fear and went through with the class. I would not have created this if I gave in to my fear.
I have plans at the back of my mind to utilise what I have learnt. In sya Allah if all goes well, I would love to be able to share it with others.
If anyone is interested, I attended the class at Astitchworks located just across Joo Chiat Complex. I would encourage you to go for it if you’re keen because they have a small class size and the trainers are helpful and patient! I attended a sewing class at the CC once and didn’t find it helpful. There were too many students to 1 teacher and the sewing machines provided was not enough compared to the number of students who attended. They are currently trying to get recognition so that future students can use their Skillshare credits to pay for the course.
