I'm Teaching Myself to Sew
Clothes are expensive and unless I want to end up naked, I need to make some. I plan to take apart a dress that got ripped where it is unwearable and make a dress out of it. This video should be interesting in doing that. Super plus sized people cannot buy patterns. Go over size 26 and it's good bye clothes patterns!
I just like to wear loose dresses but let's see how this goes. A good friend got me a used sewing machine and it works. I fixed two of my dresses today, one had a seam ripped out along the whole side and the other red one had the pockets ripped out. I may have to figure out how to sew some shorts for underwear too. The other day I bought some bobbins at the sew machine store and the man was nice enough to show me how to thread bobbins on the particular machine I had.
I sewed a stuffed moose in home-ec class and did some sewing lines for quilts for missionaries at my church years ago with lots of help, so I am not totally new but I am very much a BEGINNER.
