Guess who has two weeks off work!!!!

Hello lovelies ๐Ÿ™‚ as you would have guessed from the title I have two weeks off work starting today YAY!!!! It’s been so long since I have had a little me time. This break has been far overdue. And I bet you can guess what I’m going to be doing with it…….yep that’s right I’m going to sew sew sew ๐Ÿ™‚

So this morning I finished of the bits and pieces I have been promising I would do for a work colleague and dropped them off, had lunch with hubby and am now home. I have a pile of patterns in front of me that I want to make and am trying to narrow it down which one is going to make it to the cutting table first.

Anyways I thought before I get started that I would share a couple of the first items of clothing I ever made with you all. Keep in mind that I am self taught other than a short course I did at a community centre 3 hours per week over a 6 week period which is where I first learnt how to adjust patterns to fit.

These first few photos are of the dress I made during that course and the first proper garment I ever made myself. I used McCalls pattern 5659.

The next one is the second dress I made myself which was for a work Xmas party shortly after. I used Simplicity patter 2947.

This next one is a PDF patter by Sis Boom or the Scientific Seamstress. It was the first time I’d used a PDF and found it to be a great pattern with well written instructions.

Lastly here is a few photos of other items I have made either without a pattern or not totally related to plus size sewing.
