About me

Nedoux Head shot

Words are the fabric of my mind

I love dressmaking & pattern drafting

I sometimes use sewing as a metaphor for life

I appreciate how style is a form of self- expression

I love satires and clever puns especially the cleverly intended sort

Thank you for taking out time to see my musings & projects. Ideally, new posts Mondaily. 🙂

  1. Hi Nedoux! Lovely blog you have here! I saw a link on Timi’s blog, and it led me here. I sew too, but I’m nowhere as good as you. I like your writing too, it’s very funny, but it never fails to deliver the message.

    1. Hi Eniola,

      I’m so pleased to meet you. I’m always glad when I find a fellow sewing enthusiast, oh, it’s all about practice, practice and more practice.

      Thank you so much for visiting and for your kind words. 🙂

    1. @ “you sew what you rip” Hmmm… that’s so thought-provoking.

      Permit me to overzealously interpret it as “In Life, it might become necessary to mend the bridges that we burn” 😄

      Thanks for stopping by this page!

  2. Hi Nedoux, the first time I discovered your blog, I was fascinated by how you could make sewing and all things related appeal to me as one who can hardly push thread through the eye of a needle. I have since read more of your posts and watched you weave words in such an incredible way that I have come back for more and more.

    For this reason, I have nominated you for the Liebster Award.

    1. Hi Unathi,

      Yayyyy! Thank you so much, this put a big smile on my face. There’s something rather exciting about awards, it feels like one won something. 😀

      1. I was so excited to learn that you have not reached 1000 followers yet, because one of the rules for this award is that the nominated blogs must have a certain number of followers. I was quite keen on having you as a nominee because you have such an engaging blog.

        You have certainly won ‘something’ – peer recognition 🙂

        Thank you so much for accepting.

  4. Hi Nedoux, I’m happy you’ve found me. Excellent writing and great clothes!

    Ps: Your almost poetic description of what Lagos is like is as accurate as it gets!:)

    1. Hi Joe,

      So kind of you to stop by. It was lovely chatting with you at Jackie’s, though I had to run off as I was so sleepy. 😀

      Thank you so much for your kind words.

      Warm regards.

  7. Hello Nedoux,

    I love sewing too. I do freestyle sewing when need be. Back in the day, you’ll will catch me sewing my school uniforms while I was still in secondary school (just the A-line skirt though). These days, you’ll see me DIYing some cute summer dresses I find on the internet and sewing covers for our throw pillows.

    I read a few of your posts and love the way you write – just like a quiet Singer machine operated by an electric motor. ❤

    Oya, me and my village people need another asoebi – please when do we come for the fitting? With that, you can tell where I followed you from – take a guess. 🙂

  9. Hello Nedoux! Your comment on Jacky’s interview on my site was so sweet it put me on a jet to meet you. That’s why I am here now. You have a great blog. I can foresee your work, your mind, your ways are magnetic and from the start touch my heart. Keep on shining! The world is hungry for people to light it up. I hope to be back.

  10. I am so glad you left me a comment at my blog, because it is somehow hard to find good sewing blogs besides the really big ones. And I really like that your personality is showing through in your posts:)) I will definitely checking back regularly. Sophia (Little Sewing Machine)

    1. Hello Ogonna,

      You’ve left me with such kind compliments, I know my smile will last the whole day.

      Sewing is actually logical, when you understand the basics, it’s smooth sailing all the way. I am compiling a list of tutorials in the “How to sew” page, you might find these useful.

      Thank you for visiting and reading.

      Have a lovely day!

  13. “I sometimes use sewing as a metaphor for life”
    I love that and can relate because I often do that too with the things I like to do, including my writing.

    Pleased to meet you. I’ve been hunting for Nigerian women to follow, so I’m glad I found you 🙂 Looking forward to seeing a bit of your world.
