The Tales Of A Nigerian Tailor by Chioma of “SEAMPLY SYLVIA”

I’ve held back on this for way too long. It’s about time.

My name is Chioma and I’m a tailor (not your regular kind though). I’m also a student(can’t wait to not be), a storyteller (can’t help it) and the President of BSA (bathroom singers association) but I’m here for the story part.

Let’s rewind.

My name is Chioma and I’m a tailor (not your regular kind though). I have realized that my experiences can’t be bottled up inside of me anymore; I have to share them. You need to know what a tailor (/fashion designer/seamstress/cloth-maker/whatever fancy name you’ve got) goes through on a daily basis. In as much as I can’t promise to give you a daily rundown of my life as a tailor, I’ll give a regular rundown what the average tailor goes through.

This will be unbiased and as straight from the heart as possible. No real names but real stories.

Why am I doing this? Because we need to know. While you’re lounging in your office enjoying the chilled air conditioner, what’s your tailor doing? Running around inside Balogun/Oshodi market looking for the perfect fabric or inside Jankara market looking for that perfect tool to make the work better and make your outfit just as lovely as you wanted. Yes I know hustles are packaged differently and I also understand that we chose this path but please don’t forget your conscience in the church offertory box.

With that said, expect me every now and then to give you inside gist on what happens behind the scenes between you, your fabric and the Nigerian tailor. I’m making this commitment because I won’t want to fail.

Watch this space and share your views in the comment section. As a tailor, what has your experience been with clients and as a client, what do you think about the Nigerian tailor?
