I'm not worried - my weight goes up and down like a see-saw because of my health issues. However, it makes it a bit hard to sew for myself when my figure constantly changes!
I did go through my closet and found that these lovely makes no longer fit. I put them in the "small size" box. I must have taken about 75% of my closet out with RTW. Then I dug out my "larger size" box and added a few things to my closet, about 25% all RTW. This was a great experience for me to learn what I needed in my wardrobe.
Here are the Me Makes I had to put away
From top L to R
In addition to the fitting issues with MMM, it has also been much colder here than normal. This makes me want to stay in the house and not do much. So I lounge in a tee and yoga pants or jeans. Not very exciting! Lol. So I throw my hands up and not stress out about it. MMM is over for me this year, next year will be better. :D
With that in mind, I lined up a few patterns I need to sew up to fill gaps in my wardrobe. Here is what I hope to sew soon, in no particular order:
McCall's 4261 - Skirt from really funky ruffle, leopard fabric
McCall's 6964 - I really want to try the tank pattern on this as well as the boatneck on the bottom
McCall's 6796 - The short sleeve view with that awesome neck, or even the tank version
Jalie 2804 - the tank view
New Look 6100 - to replace the ones that were too tight
New Look 6470 - the crossover tank on top right.
Simplicity 1801 - the view she is wearing. I made this in the long view before and love it. Fits great.
Simplicity 3880 - the green shorts on the bottom middle
Simplicity 7196 - I'm working on these right now. The shortest view.
My sewing agenda will be filled with tanks, shorts, skirts, and a dress. I need clothes for warm weather! Wish me luck!
