To those who know me, it is no secret that I am a frustrated fashion designer. Back when I was younger, my paper doll’s dresses were not only made of ordinary paper, but of various materials of different texture like tissue paper, craft, even onion skin and other recycled materials. I would tie them up with glue and scotch tape, so my dolls would look 3-dimensional godesses with long flowing drapes and intricate designs. Too bad I wasn’t able to preserve them.

Since I started working, I’ve been wanting to enroll myself to sewing lessons so I could just make my own clothes. Somehow though, something happens so it would’nt push thru. Some 5 years ago, I actually gathered perfect timing to enroll in a fashion school near my house. I dropped out after three sessions because I find my instructor so “masungit” and unapproachable.  I think the one-on-one style is not for me

Many years later, here comes the nagging feeling again. I felt that this is the best timing, before baby blues come our way. 🙂 As long as it’s Saturdays and it’s going to be classroom type, even if it’s more expensive, I will go. So I started researching again and found out about SOFA’s fast-track fashion courses!
