I learned to sew in 1963 but I’m not good at pressing, I’ve learned. I find as I’m getting older that here are challenges in fitting. I’m used to be 5’1 and a 1/4 but I’m not allowing anyone to measure me right now. I’m small framed but at 68-year old a bit “grandmotherly. I’m best in skinny jeans, form fitting but with ease. I totally love clothing that is really different, unusual hemline and neck lines. Some of the patterns I’ve seen that I love have way too much fabric for my frame.
lve seen beautiful patterns for what I’m looking for but they would totally overwhelm me. Is there anyone with similar concerns? In Casmerette patterns I measure a size 10/12 gh cup. Those are rather large, polite term bust line, not so polite “big boobs”. Is it easy to take out the volume in a design with out affecting the overall structure?
I have a piece of pure wool ponte and some boiled wool. Not to mention the absolutely wonderful cashmere Coating. I’m afraid what do I do?ra
