When I began typing two things came to mind-- "Hello" I'm a new blogger and "Uh Oh"-- what the heck have I done?! I am not a writer and I have never published anything in my life and I'm about to share my sewing experiences with the world?! OMG!
Well, enough of that-- here goes-- my first blog post...
My name is Melody. I love to sew and I love to knit. My maternal grandmother taught me to sew when I was in the 6th grade. I learned to knit while attending a Girl Scout troop leader meeting about 8 years ago. In both cases I learned the basics of the craft, the rest is pretty much self taught.
I am plus sized and I love to sew with knit fabrics. I am learning how to fit MY figure. I have a lot more to learn. I hope you will enjoy this process with me.
I am currently getting up the nerve to begin sewing a prom dress for my daughter's dress for Senior Prom using Vogue 2929. This is not my first time sewing a prom dress but this will be the first time I sewed any garment that is cut on the bias. I must admit that I am a little intimidated.
I will try to blog about my progress and wouldn't mind a little encouragement and helpful tips along the way so please feel free to leave a comment.
Until next time... sew something you love!
