Hi! I’m brand new to this forum and would just like to say, “Wow!” I was able to read a number of posts and, with pen and paper in hand, came up with an impressive list of website, magazines, etc. to follow up on! I just adore sewing and am finally inspired to sew some clothes for myself. What finally drove me to this point? I’m nearly 7 months pregnant with son number two, have designer tastes, but also a husband with a loving focus on funneling our money into retirement plans, paying off student loans (done this month — yay!), child-related expenses, eating out, etc! Also adding to the mix, I’m 5’1″ with an hour-glass figure that includes a 36DDD bustline. Lucky me, huh!? So again, “Wow!” and thank you for a wonderfully informative place to peruse and share!! I can hardly wait to begin making some customized slopers!
