Quick update

I know, it’s been forever since I posted anything! Things were super hectic last month with the preparations for the move and then immediately after moving I came down with a brutal sinus infection that I haven’t been able to shake AND my laptop decided to quit functioning properly after a dumb Windows update. I’m going to try troubleshooting the problem ASAP, once my head has cleared a bit from the sinus infection and I can focus properly, because boy has the infection ever made my thinking cloudy.

I have some exciting projects I’m really itching to blog about, including a dress for one of my sisters that I’m currently making the toile/muslin for. It’s a Style pattern from 1978 (Style 2204) and it will be only the first of a number of dresses I’m going to be making her using patterns from the mid-late 1960’s and the 70’s.

A lot of the big sewing projects I have planned out for the year are for my sisters and I’m really excited about collaborating with them on these garments! It gives me the chance to learn how to fit other women, sew for a variety of body types, plus hopefully do what I’ve wanted to do from the start – create bespoke garments tailored to their individual styles that will (fingers crossed!) fit them beautifully and help them feel like the gorgeous humans they are in these garments and their own skin. Sewing for myself has done so much to help my body image and has had such a powerful impact on the way I see myself and my body that I want to spread that to the people I love the most in the world, so beginning that process is a huge goal of mine this year. I really hope that these first projects for my sisters go well! Wish me luck!

Anyway, hopefully I’ll be back to posting properly soon! I miss everyone and am sorry for kind of dropping off the face of the planet for awhile there! I hope you’ve all been doing well. ❀

  1. Great to see you post. Your sewing skills always amaze me! Your sisters are lucky to have such a talented seamstress. I’m really impressed. I can’t even find the end of the spool of thread, LOL! πŸ˜€

    1. Aww, thank you! I’m giving my laptop a test run to see if it’s resolved the weird issues it was having before/try and fix it if the problem comes up again. If it continues to run as smoothly as it has for the last five minutes, I totally want to post about the two dress mock ups I’ve made for my older sister in the last month! We’re on a real roll and I’m loving it! She’s so much fun to make clothes for!
