Alright, my anonymous friend won't give me her name, so I am going to make one up for her. I am going to call her "Nony" (pronounced No Nee), which is just a shortened "anonymous". Nony asked me why I don't make dresses or skirts or SOMETHING other than a thousand blouses. Yesterday, I remembered the reason.
The reason is, I have spent the last two years LEARNING how to make the clothes I make fit me.
I have miles of fabric, most of which I bought on sale, and I decided to use the fabric up as LESSONS IN FIT. Obviously, finding Sure-fit Designs was a great solution, BUT that doesn't really teach me how to fit a commercial pattern. That is what I wanted to be able to do, because I am not good -- yet -- at making new styles up with SFD.
