Something to keep in mind -

If you are afraid to make a mistake, afraid to ruin some fabric, or afraid to waste some time, you won’t ever get really good at this craft. It’s the dues you pay for becoming proficient.
                                                                                                                               - Kenneth D King


“Female fat [as] a moral issue is articulated with words like good and bad. If our culture’s fixation on female fatness or thinness was about sex, it would be private issue between a woman and her lover; if it were about health, between a woman and herself… A cultural fixation on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty but one about obedience.”
                                                                                                          ~ Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth


How is your self-image and the way you carry yourself informed by your beliefs?
I believe that God created me to be intelligent, creative, beautiful, strong, dignified, powerful, joyful, loving, prayerful, friendly, hospitable, a servant, a teacher, a mother, a wife, a friend, supportive, discerning, wise, diligent and gentle. To walk with my head down would dishonor the one who created all of that. It has everything to do with what I believe.

Not all exactly sewing or sewing related, but something for me to keep in mind!

More lingerie

I have had these completed for a couple of weeks now, but could not get the time to get them posted.  There's nothing new here - Danglez DB5 for the bra pattern and more Ottobre panties.  I will say that this is probably the most comfortable bra I have ever worn and am considering buying more of the Danglez bra patterns in my size range.  And Dini, the designer/owner of Danglez, was super helpful when I was trying to work through this pattern and get it to fit.  She even redrafted the pattern just for my measurements, it that great customer service or what?! 

Next up skirts - from the Sew Serendipity book.  Happy Sewing, Suzanne
