No! I AM Going To Sew!
God, I get on my own nerves. I really, really need some new clothes. All I ever wear in the fall/winter is stretch pants and fleece hoodies. That is sooooo not fashionable. I've decided that, while I am comfy, I should really try a little harder. I mean, there's only so much one can do to brighten up a fleece hoodie stretch pants combo. I've been super reluctant to sew because I have such a hard time fitting myself and I don't want to end up with a nice collection of wadders that I will give away. Two years ago or so (I can't even remember) Mick bought me a MyTwin dressform for Christmas. I was hesitant to order the foam because I figured that I was going to lose weight and I would need a smaller dress form, but now I realize just how riddy that is. I need clothes to fit this body that I've had for at least two years. I just now ordered the foam. It will be here in a week which means that I might actually have something fabulous to wear this Christmas. Wish me luck. Oh, and I plan to document the process of making the form. I'm kind of excited. Maybe this is the kick in the butt that I needed.
