Yesterday Tanya left this comment on my Butterick construction post:
"Thanks so much for sharing your sewing adventures in your blog. Seeing your fabulous creations for a plus size body have really inspired me to stop waiting around for my shape to change before I make my own clothing. Tonight, I finished (aside from hemming) a simple sundress...it's the first garment other than PJ pants that I've made for myself in years, and I'm looking forward to doing more."
I fully realize that I could have just put up a "review" of the finished dress...stating my challenges without pics. But I'm hoping that as I move through the challenge of making garments from the new plus size patterns that I can at least provide a guiding light for other plus size sewists to follow...because the real goal is to sew flattering fashionable garments so that others will want to purchase the patterns to make their own versions. I promise to post reviews (both good and bad) on PR for prosperity.
And Tanya...once again thanks for your very kind words...they are sooooo appreciated! But mostly, I'm so thrilled that you are sewing again for yourself! That is the real prize!!! And please check out Tanya's pretty new sundress here!!!
...as always, more later!
