Maria's Dress - An Update.

This post is just a bit of a brag - Maria has been kind enough to take a few extra photos.

Apparently she felt she looked so good in her new dress, she needed to get a new hair cut. She tells me all she needs is 10 more. Luckily, she also says she wants to learn to sew. ;) She's written a bit for the blog for me:

Everyone who's seen me in my dress so far has been extremely complimentary. I'm not surprised! I absolutely love it. It's super comfortable, and while I always hold my stomach in, with this I can relax and still love my shape. I know I'm not the only one who has trouble getting off the hanger clothes. It just goes to show most of us are wearing ill-fitting garments. 

If you're reading this, you must try it for yourself - I know I'm going to start learning how now. How have I managed this far with an entire wardrobe of clothes that don't fit?


  1. Sadly we do not all have someone who can make things that fit and flatter us.

    1. Which is odd really, because two generations ago it wouldn't have been a problem!

      I think the main thing though is to be aware that it is the clothes and not our bodies which need to be different.


  2. Hello, I've found you via TSF. Your blog looks great. I especially love the pattern cutting information.

    1. Thanks Helen!
      I've checked yours out too. :)
      Stay tuned - I'm hoping I'll get lots more drafting focused stuff happening in the near future.
