Hi all. I’ve been struggling with fitting my post-kids body. I’ve never had much of a waist, but with a number of c-sections my muscles just won’t whip back into even my pre-baby shape. Oh, if those kids weren’t so cute!
Anyway, I’m reading a book that says that a straight shape should just wear straight clothes like long boxy jackets, but that seems to contradict a lot of what I thought I knew. Shouldn’t I be making shaped, fitted jackets and A line skirts to give me a waist? I do have a large bust, but making anything empire just makes me look preggo again. Vogue 7749 looks great on me,
but this Mcalls pattern looked horrible!
Anything that I make to sculpt a waist doesn’t seem to work (except winter jackets). Are there any suggestions? Thanks so much for following!
