Thanks to my freakish, Jayne Mansfield-esque body (40-30-40 with a long torso and ugly knees) and a love of all things retro, I started sewing to fit my shape. Finally I can wear a dress that FITS! I love vintage patterns, and I'm exploring resizing to fit my shape. I love seeing what my fellow vintage-o-philes are stitching up!
