I had a few months when I wasn't feeling well, and I put aside my sewing. The upside is that I lost weight (an inch at waist and hips). Now, I'm trying to get back into sewing.

I'm a bit discouraged since my last effort for myself was not a great success. (My husband's semi-opaque PJ bottoms were a rousing success).

Currently, I am tracing out my next project. I am concerned I'm making it too large, but after discovering that most of my fitting problems last time were from the hips being a bit too small, I figured it would be safer to start from the other direction.

No question here, just saying hello again and hoping for encouragement!

Hey welcome back! Hope your feeling so much better and keep well

I remember those opaque jammies well and am glad to hear they worked out. Do you have a matching nightie??
Never fear, your own garments will be fabulous too once you've got them fitting the new figure
