When I was little, I used to watched my late mother sewing dresses for me, my sister and brothers. Sewing is one of my mother’s skills I must say. Because I always look at my mother, I grew up drawing dresses on paper and cut it after. I remember when my friend and I are playing paper doll, I am make my own doll and dresses for my doll because I do not have money to buy paper doll and dresses. I envy them because their mother gives them money. But I am thankful then because I develop my skill in making dresses. I grew up dreaming to be a fashion designer someday.
My dream to become a fashion designer remains a dream because taking the course is very costly. And my father can’t afford it. Though I did not able to study the course that I wanted, I am still happy because I got the chance to sew dresses for my nephew and nieces costumes for book parade. It was a dream come true to sew and make a dress. Though I do not have any experience in sewing dresses at all, the experienced of watching my mother before is my only inspiration. I really thought the costumes I made for the nephew and nieces are the first and the last one, but then I was wrong because just recently, I sewed another costumes for the nephew and his classmates for their school presentation. I am really happy because I will be able to practice more. The image above are the costumes that I sewed. I thank God for the skills and my late mother for being my inspiration. I hope that I will be able to pursue my dreams in making dresses or even be a dressmaker in the future.
