When it comes to “important” things I have always been a bit nonconforming; I choose a practical education (technical mind you) instead of going to university, I have never been married and I have no children.
And then in 2016 I quit my well-paid job to “do something in fashion”. Something to do with whining on the couch, depression and choosing for yourself (I can recommend you by the way, but preferably without depression :-))
But then what? It was obvious to work as a tailor, after all I also have a tailors diploma.
And so it happened …
… And then you find out that sitting behind a sewing machine for 40 hours a week for work is something different than making a nice dress in your spare time.
And the nerd in me missed the technical work too. Digital pattern drawing (I soon abandoned the manual work) is much more fun than sewing.
Meanwhile, the pattern drawing has escalated a bit out of control. Photo module here, 3d module there. I can do something with that…
It had to be pointed out to me, but that “something” turned out to fit together very nicely and even more was possible than expected. As a result, I now only offer digital pattern related services.
