Sewing and working out
Miss Crayola Creepy 12:05 PM Completed projectWhen most people go to the gym they are happy about the fact that they are losing weight, but people that sew clothing might not be as ecstatic. A couple of months ago I decided to change the way I ate and started doing some of the routines from this book to try to become healthier and stronger. In under a month clothes that felt close fitting were much looser and jeans that used to be tight could come off without being unbuttoned.
This green Renfrew was made back in July (I never posted photos of it) and after putting it on realized that it was looser fitting than the ones I have made in the past. Something was up, so I took my measurements and discovered that I had lost an inch in my bust, waist, and hips. It's not a noticeable change to my friends and family, but it is a huge change to me. One inch is a big difference when it comes to the fit of clothes and now many of the garments I have made don't fit as nicely.
I am curious how weight loss or weight gain has affected your sewing. Do you take in or take out the seams if it's possible? Stop wearing certain things? I'll tell you what, I'm not excited about retracing patterns that I want to make again :(
