So on to Move-It Monday. I am on the threshold of my next mini goal for weight loss. I decided that for every ten pounds down I go I get to make myself new clothes. It's been great watching the pattern sizes go down. The weight loss stalled after I let myself indulge at Halloween last year, but I feel like I'm finally getting back on track. The next set of patterns I can sew is less than a pound away from what my scale said last time I weighed myself. Here are my rewards patterns for going below 180:
The shirt on the left is one I made a few years back and modified to be a maternity pattern. Now I want it in non-maternity and in purple. The original I call my "awesomely pink shirt". It's the color of Pepto-Bismol.

Simplicity website patterns show up itty bitty.
I want to try my hand at pants again. They rarely work out for me but I've got a few new tricks up my sleeve to make pants fit my weird body. These will be made out of a lavender stretch denim with silver underweave. I've had the fabric for YEARS waiting for me to make another project that's just not going to happen. But there's enough yardage to make the pants. If skinny jeans were an option for me I'd probably make skinny jeans out of it. But I'm not going to.
|This pattern is so old is doesn't even show up in the out-of-print patterns and I had to find a picture on ebay.|
|I love the interesting seams on this Vogue skirt. I'll probably use it more than once.|
There are also goals for other weight loss milestones.
|McCall's 5894 I've never made jeans before|
|Vogue 1109 fun with stripes!|
|Simplicity 2058 just a simple trumpet skirt|
I really don't expect to get under 150. I feel like that is a lofty goal. But we'll see. These are pretty good motivation. I love the 150 lb. dress. I'm not sure exactly why; I just love it. Thirty-ish more pounds and it's mine!
