Hello Hive....

Tadaaaa, let me appear from this blue moon with the joy and enthusiasm I feel to show us how I overcame the fear and challenge of sewing plus size outfits.

Throughout my fashion Journey, there are but two things that gives me a scare, sewing a fitted dress was usually an issue, but because my shape was such a simple one to mimic I made my dresses and they fit nearly well.

Now you can't be a full time designer if you can make proper fitting clothes for your clients.

So I started sewing small outfits for sister and some of my friends, they have good some easy shapes I could mimic as well

This went on for a while until I picked up children's outfits and started sewing, several practise and damaging of clothes went on until I got used to it.

But now continuous learning has helped me understand clothes and fashion better until I decided to make my first plus sizer dress..

Working with a bust of 48
And hip measurements of 50
Was quite challenging, the dress was large and didn't look like any small measurements...
Nevertheless I gave it my all until I have this dress ready and completed

There and then the dress was completed but it looks really odd and I have to do something to brighten the dress up
Part of the ideas that came was for me to get a lace cut trimming, add these glittery stone and then the bead work where I bought two lovely variety of pearls and creatively tagged them into the lace trimmings.

It's great to hear that you've overcome one of your dressmaking challenges. I'm certain you'll overcome many more with time and practice.

The dress looks lovely by the way... I'm wishing you good luck and hoping it sizes your client perfectly.

Good job dear! ❤️

I think the same thing happens to me when I make lingerie, I'm so used to my measurements that I'm afraid to work with others haha. Surely this dress will suit your client and definitely those embroidered pearls make it even more beautiful ❣️.
