Using a stove iron to sew an urgent outfit dew to lack of electricity 💡 is so terrible 😞, having to inhale the smoke that comes with the flames. All this just so I won’t end up disappointing my client.

Actually there wasn’t any electricity 💡 for some reason I don’t know, I hardly get light to do my urgent work whenever I need it. I thought I should give them more time they might eventually come later I waited till evening but I didn’t see I was so angry, wasn’t happy at all because I was suppose to deliver the cloth to my client this morning. So I thought of improvising instead of continuing to wait for electricity that am not sure they’ll come, I thought I should use a stove iron but I also considered the stress that comes with it so very huge stress, you get to inhale into your system dark smokes from the stove and you get to sweat a lot, the hole feeling and experience is just something I didn’t just want but I didn’t have a choice but to go ahead with it so I just brought out the stove and iron and I made the fire and I place the iron on top it and that’s how I started sewing my clients cloth.

Items used:

  • Am ankara fabric
  • A plain blank fabric
  • A gold color long zip
  • A black color long readymade zip
  • A matching color thread both black and gold.

My sewing processes:

Step 1:

As usual I lay the Ankara fabric, I bend it into two I draw my client’s body measurement on it with a pencil ✏️ and I cut it out. I used same front pattern to cut out the back view and the both sleeves.

Step 2:

I then ironed out a straight line at the middle of the front to indicate the center of the fabric so what ever design I’ll be making following the line will just be straight!

Step 3:

After the ironing I lay the fabric on the floor, I opened it and I took the black fabric and I skated it like an arrow but i used size of 5inches and length of 11inches, and I place it on the front of the fabric and I bend and sew it to the front of the fabric.

Step 4:

After the black was laid, I took the long gold zip and place it on top the black, the plan I had was to make pocket there so I sewed an opening just like the size of the zip and I opened it and sew the zip to the front and I lay a piece under to form the pocket and that was how I got the front ready with a very simple and unique design.

Step 5:

After that I joined the right side of the shoulder, and i added the readymade zip to the right side of the shoulder and trimmed it and added the both sleeves and join the body size to my client measurement. I ironed bend the Length and package it for delivery, he just came right now and took it am glad he liked what he saw that mean my stress wasn’t in vain.

Sorry guys I didn’t really have much time to take step my step pictures giving the fact that it was really getting dark and I couldn’t see and I really needed to rush up the cloth so as to finish on time since there wasn’t light 💡 and u wasn’t seeing anymore.

Thanks guys for reading through my post have a prosperous week ahead and a splendid day too. Good vibes 😎.

Oh! Sorry for the stress you had to pass through because of lack of power supply.

I really understand how you felt when going through all this stress, same thing I passed through last week when I was making as an outfit for my client, I was thinking the power supply will be restored in few hours but it eventually took days that I couldn't wait any longer in order not to disappoint my client, I had to use this same method but mine was filled with charcoal, it wasn't easy at all. The joy is that I was able to deliver the outfit without disappointing my client.

Great job boss @smilestitches, thank for sharing.

I tell you my dear is very super stressful that’s why I don’t usually like taking urgent work because as you know electricity 💡 isn’t to be trusted in this side of the world

Curiously in my country Venezuela yesterday we also had no electricity and it was impossible for me to bring a job today, sad for me.

I love the fabric you used and the asymmetry of the design, it is spectacular, blessings.

Oh wow, when I saw the fire I first thought now you will burn everything down, but after reading I understood you needed it for the ironing. Its really annoying that you have to work without electricity, this makes everythings so much harder. But thanks to your inventiveness, the shirt came out fabolous!

Wow how beautiful, coincidentally in my country Venezuela the power went out, it is complicated because you can not move forward in the projects, despite the setbacks you were able to finish your client's order, thanks for sharing your great work. Happy day!

A job well done under very tough and stressful circumstances, but like me, the show must go on, so the jobs gets done, no matter how much blood, sweat and tears and in your case, smoke gets up you nose.

How do you get your power? Do you have solar are on you on the mains powers through the city infrastructure?
