MY STANDARDIZED ANSWER to the repetitive question “How did you learn to sew?” is “I was taught by my mom, who was taught by my grandma, who was taught by my great grandma etc.”
Mom: “You look like a butterfly!”
Me: “Aww that’s cute!”
Colleague: “You look like a French girl!”
Me: “Oh, really? Cool! Thanks!”
Friend: “You…you look like you are not from this world!”
Me: slightly worried “Okay…don’t tell NASA that.”
IF I HAD TO WRITE a “most frequently asked questions” list about my life, then at the top of that list would be the question: “How did you learn to sew?”
“You look like you came back from a vacation in an Asian country!” a friend exclaimed when she met me wearing this kimono top. It was not the effect I was going for while making it, but if it gives away an authentic vibe, I am cool with that.
IF SPRING COULD PERSONIFY into someone who had multiple social media accounts, by now it would have definitely gone crazy from all the tags/mentions it got. Not a day went by without me seeing people complaining about winter and begging spring to come. Now that it’s finally here, people will probably start talking about summer in no time. Spring, you will soon be forgotten.
