Sometimes we’re left with no other choice but to do what we have to do, even in my sick 🤒 state, I just had to complete this urgent outfit for a wedding guest @smilestitches😊.

Hello friends, good morning to you all hope you all are doing perfectly fine, I was equally fine too not until I was struck down with malaria and it came with a very severe headache and I was just left so weak and helpless unable to work but or do any hard job cause the headache was so severe and I had an urgent of my client I was I was supposed to deliver to him before tomorrow morning, as you know tomorrow is Saturday and Saturdays are for occasions. So my client has a wedding he was suppose to attend tomorrow so I just had to make sure his outfit was ready by tomorrow morning so he can attend his function and I will be free of much worries 😂 or guilt of disappointing him. In other for such occurrences I just had to force myself to complete it despite my health challenge, thank God I did. Adding to the list this week has been so super busy for me I had to get lots of things fixed and running around too maybe that contributed to my sudden malaria but I trust I’ll be fine soon.
So friends it’s my pleasure to share with you all an outfit I just concluded for my client to use it to a wedding tomorrow morning so guys stay connected to your preferred brand while I take you on a very interesting adventure @smilestitches😊.

My Sewing processes:

Firstly:

I lay the blue fabric, bend and drew out the measurement of my client on it and I cut it out, after that I used the already cut out front to cut out the rest part of the cloth like the both sleeves and the back view.

Secondly:

I took out the front view, iron out a straight line at the middle to indicate the middle so I would follow my line there and make sure what ever design I’ll be doing would be straight.

Thirdly:

After the ironing, I took the remaining blue and I cut size of 2inches and the length was the full length of the front which was 31inches and I cut it out, I actually cut 2 out same measurements. I took them to the iron and I bend both sides in to give me 0.9inches

so it could fit very well into the D&hook hole.

Fourthly:

After the bending was done, i cut them into four,I then fixed it to the D&hook holes and I took it and place it in front of the blue and I started considering which style to sew,

I later came to the conclusion that I should sew this other one 👇🏼

so I lay lay them in front and I sewed them to the front from the neck region to the down part of the front.

Step five:

After I place them both and sew to the front.

After that I trimmed the shoulder and joined the both sleeves and Then join the body size to the measurement of my client and after that, I then used the ankara for for the trouser too and I bend the length and my client outfit was ready for him to rock to his occasion this morning.

Oh wow that's pretty stylish especially with the hook things..
I would love to see all of your clients standing side by side wearing your creations!
I think that would look amazing but also put it all into context and really see just how freaking amazingly talented you are!

Wow that’s good idea oh but most of my client do not always allow me to take there pictures because they don’t want other person to come see the style and demand for it they want to be the ones wearing it alone can you imagine that 😂 so funny

Wow you clients sound like serious Hollywood Divas! 🤣😂😅

Yes but do they not let you take a photo of it to keep for yourself- for your records- for posterity sake?

Noooo they don’t oooo 😂 Just few of them do allow me some feel me taking there pictures and keeping it in my phone will make other clients see and wants same style 😂

Wow! True Divas eh! 🤣

Wow, that's not your everyday wedding getup and I love it :D
