New Times!

I have not blogged here in over a year. I only sewed maybe 3 things last year. I was stricken with SEVERE eczema that was really affecting my life. My hands were practically useless. My entire body was covered in scabs and rough patches. I could not exercise because sweat just made it flare up real bad. So I gained some weight and couldn't fit into my patterns anymore (I am CRAP at resizing and don't care to learn it better.) I'm losing it now, but in the meantime I discovered Estate Sales and Goodwill scores lol! And here are some!

I'm not much into the "vintage lifestyle" anymore, although it is very much a part of who I am. After being in Colorado for 5 years now I am turning into a "Coloradan" -- hiking, cycling, camping. I mostly wear stuff from places like REI (I'm kinda of a basic bitch these days lol). But I enjoy dressing to go out and these are just a few of the things I like to wear out and about. Hopefully I will pick sewing back up by this summer when I project most of my weight will come off :)

Dress #3 -- Butterick 6087 (2014)

Size 14 perfect fit. I will add, though, that the pattern cover is false advertising. View B, which I made, is actually high-necked according to the pattern pieces. Use View C's bodice front if you want the lower neckline.
