If you're a long-time reader, you'll know that I occasionally modify thrifted items or sew a skirt or two. Uhm, I don't use patterns for those projects. I've had the worst luck with sewing with patterns. Most of the time, I have to attack finished garments with a seam ripper because they end up not fitting well. I haven't figured out how or where to place darts or how to properly alter a pattern to make it fit my body yet. And I still haven't gotten a bodyform. But I was getting tired of making so many excuses, so I got myself a simple pattern, read, reread, and then reread again just to make sure I knew what I was doing, then just dove into it and sewed.
Here's my first attempt!The pattern was for a plain tank, and I added the bias tape "collar" because I thought it looked purdy. I am not a great sew-ist (yet) but practice makes perfect, right? You guyz... sewing is addicting! I already have some muslin cut up for a new dress, and I just bought some adorable fabric to make as a skirt. I've also started following a ton of sewing blogs and Youtube channels because I can't get enough of it.
