Ok so for a few days now I have been busy getting ready for my next assignment : Teaching dressmaking using pattern drafts.
I figured out while typing that this new task I am embarking on has for this short while helped me discover some talents I thought I lacked. Being the first pattern drafter for this new fashion school, a lot of responsibilities fell on me that I had to deliver before I can even start lessons. Pheww!!
1st I had to order for textbooks and follow through to ensure we get our orders at the next batch, I also had to walk through the workshop and check out details to ensure comfort and efficiency of the work space. I suggested some renovations and adjustments here and there. (The way I was strutting and pointing at stuffs like a boss that day Ehn, Lols!
I realised that all this while I had the ability to organise and carry a project through, right now as I type I have a word document opened filled with recommendations and business plans for profitability and sustainability of this business.
I also have one open for my course outline which I just finished typing.
Yes so am selling my market o! Lols, So for those of us in Lagos, Nigeria who desire a private lesson with me here is my course outline below:
