Baaaack again with one of my biggest challenges and also one of the dearest projects to my heart.. for one of my best best friends @nadine_ahmed95 💜💜 ... My task was:
-to make her an outfit for her graduation day🎓
-with her having extreme faith in me and extreme hope that it turns out great
-and I only sewed for me, my mom and my sister before
-and there wasn't plenty of time
I knew it was a challenge ... but I have waited for so long to have this moment... to actually sew for someone new, to have new measurements to work with, a new style and a real feedback.
She picked the fabric and we had looong discussions about her taste in the design ..😊😊
And I tried .. and this was the result ..
The fit was very well-adjusted ..and close to what she imagined.. she was happy and I was happy too ...🌼🌼
And to my surprise, other people around us were happy too, were eager and waiting to see the final look.. 🙏
And for the first time, I felt that sewing can change other people's moods, days and how they feel about themselves.. not only their closets.🌸 I felt that, sewing can make a difference.🌷 ✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂✂

#TBT - Bare with me here people. Melanie was MY FIRST ACTUAL CLIENT! I say my first, although she’s technically my second, bcus she was the first one I did without any assistance or guidance (my first client I did while my instructor was shadowing). I remember going to sleep that night thinking about all the things I could have done differently...”if only I would have had the right lighting..if only I would have taken a BEFORE picture!! If only I had the right tools..the right mindset”. I was scared shitless when she first laid down in front of me. “Wtf do I do now?” “Where do I start?” It was like all of a sudden, I had forgotten everything I learned, everything I studied. She had no idea .... I have the most amazing poker face lol! Thank God! But hey, for my first time, they didn’t come out so bad 😉 She gave me the confidence I needed to trust myself to do other clients.... and here I am now 😃 .
Parting is such sweet sorrow .... in a few days, my very first full-time client Brie and her pawrents will be moving overseas for a year. In very many ways I owe Liberty Pooch’s success to them. They took a chance on me when I first started and I learned so much from them and how to raise a confident, obedient, and happy puppy! Words can’t truly express how grateful I am to them and what a joy it has been to watch My Brie Brie grow into a beautiful young lady! I wish them all the best on their adventure and pledge my eternal #gratitude for believing in me and Liberty Pooch #tillwemeetagain#vizsla
One thing I didn't think about was how difficult it would be to select an editing style for the gallery because I don't have an established portfolio yet.
So I just delivered two albums. 😂
I definitely think this moody look is my favorite though.
Proud of myself today. My mom is my first official hair client. She came in with box color and we gave her a nice brown base with some partial highlights 😊 thanks mom for coming in 💕 Come book an appointment with me #elitecosmetologyschool#highlights#color#firstclient
P.s. Thank you Mz. Nohelle for helping me @ohelleyeah
