i started sewing... maybe 2 months ago. im obsessed. i was dreaming about fabric last night. i see tassles and buttons when i close my eyes!!! so i think i have a pic of just about everything i made now, and im gonna show you in a few posts. please please comment, tips, techniques, ideas, what you would have done? anything, if you see these, please comment.
i got a simplicity pattern for a tank kinda top, and some cotton fabric with sticks print, vertical to hide the chubb hehe
so anyways this fabric has NO stretch to it, and the gathers below the feet make it stick out, and i look about 7 months pregnant. i didnt even bother to hem the bottom yet, cause whos gonna wear it? my friends are all on the pill! haha jokes ladies, jokes. i think what im gonna do is take it apart and re sew the bottom to the top with no gathers....... there is a zipper in the back too
so i said forget this, and started on a new one, with plain old cotton again, in a red and white stripe with anchors on it. super cute, with no gathers under the feet and you cant see in this picture but the bust is lined with red cotton......and its too small around the guts cause i forgot to account for my womanly shape when i altered the pattern....back to the drawing board........
so THEN, i got a different fabric, purple organic bamboo. pretty sweet eh? has a lot of stretch to it... so it not exactly tight on me, but i like it, and i wear it now. only problem is that when i stitched up the back, i didnt align the bust to torso seam. you know what mean.
man i talk alot.
