« on: November 03, 2010 10:13:37 AM »

So I have been sewing my ass off, because I lost half my ass. After doping 60 pounds I had no clothing, and an extremely hard to fit figure. What is a picky broad that hates the loosy goose shape all clothing seems to have nowadays to do? So I started making a lot more of my own stuff, paying special attention to fit. Here is what I got so far.

body suit and peg top skirt and scarf by me. Oh, and a peg top skirt is a skirt where the top is wider than the hem Cheesy I also did it with french seams, which look amazing and so professional. Ok, enough back patting...

Sheer top by me, high waist shorts by me. I love the star buttons on the butt! There is also a zipper that runs up the whole side.

Hey, Taxi!

V neck crop top by me. These sailor pants kick so much ass. They are REAL navy sailor pants...and were a 38 regular. Ugh. So much cutting and tailoring later I have some indestructible wool wide leg pants. I can't wait to wear them to a gay bar.

giraffe print leggings by me. Only one seam up the middle, got to love that. Also, box tee by me. I'm having a huge tee shirt moment and have a few more just like this.

Well, that is all for now. I have more, but it shall have to wait for another post.

Oh my god I am so so happy for you! Getting your body to where you love it, and feel good inside your own skin makes sewing, decorating yourself, so much fun-- CONGRATULATIONS ZOWIE!!!

And you have done incredible jobs--sheer talent! I have no idea what french seams are but they sound fancy and hard and you knocked them out!

Pat your back until your arms hurt!

aww, thanks guys! I will have to make a tute for the french seams. They are a lifesaver when you are working with fabric that likes to fray, or you don't want the bulk of a lining. It encases the raw edge in a seam, giving you a nice clean edge.

Congrats on losing so much weight--you look fabulous in your photos!  Love the clothes! : )
I adore your thread title--that describes perfectly how I feel about clothing as well, and is why I am learning how to make my own clothes too.
