Erika, isn's she pretty! :-)
I've been fitting brides for years now, ever since I fired my fitting supervisor in '98 after getting into so many fights with my other sewers. The camaraderie of my staff is much more important than her skill. I learned a lot from her though, and for that, I'll be forever grateful. She came from a very prominent local designer and got fired also for the same reason. Medyo mayabang eh. Magaling naman kasi talaga sya :-)
Why am I blabbering about it? Well because since '98, I've seen bodies of all shapes and sizes, from the almost anorexic to the huge ones, from the enviable armpits to the shadowlike ones, hehehehe. Not that I like seeing people naked but it comes with the job, I help them dress up. I adjust the fit of the gown to come up with the most flattering, most symmetrical effect. But, the only person who didnt allow me to see hers, and literally shooed me out of the fitting room was ERIKA.
Bihis sya, tawagin nya ko, fit ko sya, tapos labas na ko ulit.
There was even one time that I was trying to tighten that part under the armpit and asked her to raise her arm. After much prodding, she did, but covered her armpit with her other hand. hahahahahah!
She has a great body, coz I didnt have any problems fitting her. We are very comfortable with each other, in fact, we laugh a lot together. Funny sya eh, very candid and she says the strangest things hehehehehe. ayan, na-miss ko naman bigla si erika!
And I thought the wedding day will change things, after Niko and I removed the gown from the dressform, the coordinator took the gown from me and went to erika,
"magpapabihis yan sa akin", she quipped.
The bridal assistant was very attentive. She went to the bathroom with Erika and her sister. Erika even glanced at me. I was surprised, even felt bad....
"Aba, magpapabihis nga " I thought
I almost laughed aloud when a few seconds later, the coordinator was already out of the bathroom.
"Ayaw nga!" Bwahahahahaha! Niko laughed!
Miss her :-)
