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!

This is beyond adorable! My favorite part is the ruffly bottom. I think this would also be great as a swimsuit along with the little sun bonnet. Great work on this :)
