A dress for myself is also on my list. It's going to be a knit wrap dress I intend on shrinking. I have some fabric, a rayon jersey although I'm not thrilled with the print. I'm considering over dying it with some fibre reactive dyes from Dharma Trading. They are supposed to be better than RIT dyes. When the Fourth of July sales hit I'll get my notions.

What are you thinking about for Halloween?

Several things going on at the moment. I am trying my hand at a dress for myself, learning how to make cloth flowers for head pieces, and thinking about a costume for Halloween. I just finished embroidering names on some aprons for a volunteer group for my dad. I am also starting the design process for an applique kimono I want to make as a wearable work of art.

It has to work out. It has no choice but to work out.

Hi Gina! It might just be you and me active on this team but I'm starting to sew again so I thought I'd linger here anyway. So, welcome!

Do you have any sewing projects going on right now? I'm busy making some classic flannel pajamas for my cousin with the addition of quilting silk charmeuse to the inside. She kows about this because I needed her measurements. What she doesn't know is I'm also making matching pjs for he two beloved Sheltie dogs!

For myself, I'm really interested in making clothes that fit me properly for once in my life. It's a little hard to do that while I'm serious about losing weight as my body keeps changing but that's where I'm at right now, with my sewing interests.

My name is Gina. My husband and are both new to sparkpeople. I am a Middle School science and math teacher who loves to sew, read, write, and walk. I love creating new costumes and wearable works of art. I have been overweight all my life. I am 40 and have made peace with my body but I would like to start eating better and treating myself with some more compassion.
