About moi

Hi everyone, my name is Irene, a mother, wife, fashion enthusiast, choreographer, dance instructor and an entrepreneur, with a love for all things sewing, design related and pattern-making. I have a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) honours in Business Administration and a Masters in Transportation Planning & Management (MTPM) both from the University of Lagos, Nigeria and a Diploma in Fashion Designing and Pattern Making. I am a Fashion Designer by training.

I am a stickler for DIYs. I will share my personal projects and projects from others weekly.

There are free online tutorial classes, lots of free DIYs, inspirations and techniques for sewing.  I am very excited to be sharing my knowledge. Amongst other hobbies, making clothes is something I just cannot do without; combining various fabrics to make beautiful pieces and seeing the final output is something like an adrenaline rush and I am super thrilled for this opportunity to share my knowledge and also, learn from you guys.

Also, learn the best and easy way to design, pattern draft and sew stunning outfits your heart desires at a reduced fee using Freehand Fashion. I teach how to sew both without the use of patterns and with the use of patterns. Both methods are super easy once you understand the basics.

PLEASE take your time to browse through the website and you would be amazed at the wealth of information you would find. It is like a huge library of sewing resources that will just leave you asking for more.

You don’t need to buy lots of expensive tools to get going. All that is required is a sewing machine, some fabrics and a few basic sewing supplies and you are ready to begin.

Most importantly, stay up to date with us by subscribing to our bi-monthly newsletter.

I love getting emails from readers about topics on this website, so feel free to shoot me an EMAIL if you have a burning question!

Can’t wait to hear from you.
