Story Time: Still on my Nigerian Tailor Experience, this time as an Asoebi girl at my lovely friend @reinemichi wedding. I gave my friend (Fatima also an asoebi girl) my fabric to give her tailor since I trusted her. Only for the wedding day to arrive and my dress was too small!
While, sitting at the tailor shop when the other asoebi girls were making up at the hotel, our tailors generator turned off. He had run out of fuel. .
We, already irritated, agreed not going to give him any money and he literally shrugged and said there was nothing he could do. Bear in mind, we had both sewn the same style but at that time he had finished adjusting the one for my friend and was left with stitching mine before we had the power issue. .
Anyway, I didn’t care. I picked up my dress and kept saying, ‘Chinwe be creative’. So I put it on, tucked in the sleeves and the high neck and made it a tube dress. Then I used the loosed bow and wrapped it around my back to make it look like that was the original design. Fatima was so shocked. She was like, “omg, Chinwe, you’re so creative and calm, even when you’re supposed to be panicking”😅
The picture above is the result and no one knew. Everyone actually thought that was the style I was going for. 😁 .
What kind of last minute changes have you had to do because of your tailor?
