End of 2014!

I can’t believe 2014 is winding down. It seems like it was only yesterday that I was having difficulties writing 2014 instead of 2013.

When I look back over my post for this year they have been rather scarce. And that is most likely do to the fact that my sewing this year has also been scarce and what I would consider subpar.

So, what do I do for 2015? I’m not going to say that I will “fast” when it comes to ready-to-wear (although it is very difficult for me to purchase clothing out of the department stores) I will spend the year trying to hone in on my sewing skills. And a major factor to constructing garments that are actually wearable will be the quality of my fabric purchases and planning ahead.

So it is time for me to buckle up and get ready for an interesting 2015! Happy sewing.

40+ Years and still learning!

So it has only been a couple of days into the “Bra Making Sew Along” and I have come to realize I have been wearing the wrong bra size for years. Granted I have been fitted several times before and I really thought I was wearing the right size, but I have just come to realize how the bra should truly fit. I will start tracing the pattern pieces shortly and making a draft.

Even if you are not planning to sew the bra immediately, the information received and resoruces listed will probably assist you if you “ever” think about making your own bra in the future. If you would like more information on the “sew along” check out Amy’s website at http://www.clothhabit.com.
