Plus Sized Patterns

The August 2006 Sew News magazine came loaded with good information. The best was a review of Plus-sized sewing pattern companies. At our store we have over 200 plus sized patterns, but if none of those are what you are looking this list would be great to check out. I'll admit I went to every site and spent a couple of hours oogling. For your convenience I posted a links in their own section of my SquidooLens as a permanent resource for all of us nicely endowed ladies! Click Here and you will be taken to GaileteSews and the list.

While you are there, take a look at all the machine embroidery design sites that I have listed. Send me an email if I'm missing any of your favorites so I can add them to the list. I love using the Squidoo site for making permanent clickable lists as I tend to lose track of my sites.

If you have a plus-sized child, the current Sew News has an article on altering their clothes. This is something you don't see written about much and plus sized clothes are hard to find. Even while we have been stocking our ebay store, it has been very hard to find plus sized children's patterns. We have some, but not as many as we would like to see. If anyone knows of a good source for them, please let us know.

There was also an article on making your own dress maker's dummy using a garbage bag, duct tape, and paper tape. My hubby has already promised when life slows down a bit for him, he will help me make one!

Well my heading has been spinning with ideas after getting so many sewing magazines in a row (and I didn't even get my Threads magazine yet). I never even realized how many magazines I got till they came all at once and I tried to absorb all the information. My next project that I'm planning is making an embroidered coin purse in the hoop. This will be a first for me, and I'm looking forward to it.
