I am a plus sized lady so it was a bit hard to select a pattern. I'm normally in love with those vintage patterns that seem to be all the rage in the blogosphere, but I KNOW they don't come in my size. I also love patterns from Colette Patterns, patterns from Japanese sewing books and I even love some of the baby clothes that Rae makes for her daughter, but these don't come in my size either. There was no way I could sew a decent garment for my body with any of those patterns so I searched a lot and decided to purchase the Easy Yoke Blouse pattern to test drive my garment making abilities. The description says that this is a pull-on blouse with simple seaming so I hope I can understand the pattern and manage to make a decent blouse that I can be proud of. Do you think I'll be able to tackle this task?

I'll try making garments... Again!
When I started to learn to sew I had in mind a whole new closet that I would have loved to sew for myself. I really wanted to start making garments as soon as I learned to stitch a straight line. I made a skirt and a blouse but I wouldn't dare to show them to you, Yikes!. Guess what happened? I got stuck in purse making because they seemed to be selling well in my Facebook profile. As recently as a few weeks ago I started to feel the urge to make clothes once again. I purchased this pattern from Fashion Patterns by Coni and I am planning to make it in a black gauze (I live in a tropical island) that I'll purchase from my local fabric store.
