Well I'm no guidance councellor (lol!) So I'l just say what I'l do if I were in d@ situation. I'm a result - oriented person and if I'm not getting what I'm paying for/signed up for,I'mso asking for a refund and going off to a better place where I'l get fulfillment. Just think things thru and act cos time waits for no woman :-)

Kobojunkie:

In Nigeria? Probably not but I could help you if you wanted to get one from the US and I will help find you the best deal possible. I was actually looking into buying my mum a sewing machine for christmas.
That'd be nice. Looking forward to the details.

Hi Qsola, I wuld like to ask before starting the training did you ask the amt of time he would train you for? I noticed these tailors like to keep people for a long time whereas fashion skls teach for abt 4-6 months and depending on your seriousness you can learn a lot. Maybe not everything but a lot for you to make decent clothes, it all depends on you sha.
The thing with these tailors is dat they learnt under tough bosses who kept them in apprentiship for years hardly teachiNg anything and so they want to inflict the same pain on others.
If you haven't paid him I wld advise learning in a fashion schl and then attaching yourself to a tailor for a while if u still need to.

Sewing tip for the house:
-Choose your needle according to the heaviness of your fabric
- You don't need a zipper foot to sew on an 'invisible zipper'. A regular presser foot can do d trick!

onnari :
TSN Nugget- sheer fabrics while being sewn may pucker or draw despite all your efforts - ds also happens wth jersey fabrics. u know doz ones d@ r light n somtyms silky? Place a piece of paper(i normly use old newspapers)underneath the fabrics and sew thru.wn u done, rip d paper off, leaving bhind perfectly strong stiches!
I suggest you match your needle size to the weight of the sheer fabric ( try a size 9 needle) and for the Jersey fabric, you need to use Jersey needles. I know these are not readily available here though.I'll try and post here more often to share the little I know with other sewing enthusiasists.

You do need a concealed Zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper CORRECTLY!

Though it isn't an easy task, believe me when I say you CAN do it CORRECTLY with or without a zipper foot..
Re: That's Sew Naija! - Fashion Designers,tailors,accessory/jewelry Makers, Join In! by onnari(f): 1:36pm On Mar 09, 2013
@ easterbabe- dey arnt very common so's y I suggested paper underneath jersey fabric, n you CAN sew on a concealed zipper CORRECTLY with or without a zipper foot. U just nid t knw how tho it isn't as easy as it is using the zipper foot. Note d@ u don't hav t follw all d tips posted here as they apply to different people with different resources. Thx
