One of my goals this year is to do more clothes sewing. Quilts and crafty projects come easy for me, but when it comes to clothing that is another story. I do so much better looking at something and figuring it out than trying to understand a pattern.
Where we live there are many good thrift stores and you can easily find great name brands for just a few dollars, but so often the problem is finding clothes that fit right. The women in our household are busty, and… we’re short, and…. well… we are wide. Most of the time things need to be hemmed, but the biggest problem is keeping the busts covered, yet not sloppy looking.
Anyway… I have found several dresses at the thrift store lately that I like the skirt part, but not the top part, or I’ll find a skirt that is not my size but I know I can make it work, more of this to come later this week. My problem is I have a stack of things that need to be altered and no time, but this week I want to get a few things FINISHED!
I’ve been surfing the net looking for ways to make clothing without a pattern, here are a few that look good:
