|This is what we are aiming for.|
I badly need some clothes. My jeans are shabby, my t-shirts are shrunk and pilled. It would be nice to sew for myself, but I just cannot get any time to do it.
This swimming lark takes up a lot of time. I haven't lost any weight. I have gained a little. On the other hand, it is improving my core muscles more than pilates did, and it has opened up my chest after just a few weeks! I can stand up straight now without it hurting in my chest, neck and shoulders. That's definitely new. I don't stand up straight automatically, but at least I can do it.
Finally, I am tempted by HotPatterns new downloadable patterns. I stopped sewing HP because it was just too costly with the shipping, etc. The price is suddenly do-able. I like the look of their new Fast and Fabulous Fiesta Knit Top.
|Good for the pear shaped woman?|
Also, those sleeves might not fit into coats and jackets here, where there is a proper winter. Thoughts?
