Muse Natalie dress & Burda 9755
Mine doesn't. It does document my sewing journey, and it's my small testament to myself that I can do more than just work and work and work and parent all night and day. I'm still sewing, I'm still learning and this is my small contribution to curvy sewing confidence. I'm also not doing that thing where you make yourself look skinny in your pose for every camera shot. The feminist implications of learnning always to take up less space are crap.
Grey is okay. It is very drab compared to my usual colour choices. I have a mint green and black print ready for the next dress version and a red stripe for a top version. I also bought some hot pink merino on sale and it will either be a Natalie Dress or a McCalls 6408 cardigan.
I've also got some slips to make. Shop bought slips are either very short or very long. Those nice stretchy ones with no lace are also only made for skinnier persons than myself, which is a bit outrageous. So slip making is high on the agenda.
