Forging ahead in my goal to Create my Own Garments

I’m forging ahead to get my goal of creating my own wardrobe.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading to gain a better understanding of pattern adjustments.  This has always been my problem and why clothing for me hasn’t turned out to good.  I took the time to do a very thorough measurement of myself and I think that I’m ready to start working with my newly purchased patterns.  I went to WalMart to get my oil changed yesturday and while waiting I went over to the fabric department to look at the pattern books at the Khaliah Ali Collection from Simplicity to see what Plus size Petite patterns I could find.  Not only did I find 2 patterns I like I also found this Simplicity Guide book. 



This skirt pattern is nice for it’s many variations of designs.  I can see making several of the views to enhance my wardrobe. This is Simplicity Pattern 4706  for Petites.  I’m hoping not many adjustments will have to be made with this pattern.


I love this jacket pattern because it’s good for women with a smaller torso and larger bottom at least I love the way several of the jackets I have drape on my frame.  I look forward to having many options for design/embellishing with this pattern.

I want to say “Thank YOU” to Erica, for showing that a casual can be chic Carolyn @ for being so candid regarding pattern adjustments for the fuller figure and staying Divalicious in the process, Toya,for sharing your infectious laughter and grace in shedding light on specs in the crafting world; Cidell, I look to you for trendy, fun and exciting garments and fabric choices and Adrienne for adding fuel to the fire of my desire to create garments for myself.  I worked in a factory for 8 years and totally got away from dressing up except for church and didn’t have an everyday ladylike wardrobe anymore so CHEERS to the Divas of Fashion Sewing.   I hope that in the coming weeks I will be able to evolve my wardrobe into something I can be proud of.
