Notes From A Very Red Kitchen, that you skinny minis might find useful.
First off, the top I'm wearing in the above pictures? I made it! And I'm rather proud of it. Today is Part 1 of the tutorial--materials, measurements, and a tidy little hem. This top is super comfy, nice and long, super light and airy for spring and summer, and hides that extra bit of pudge like a charm. And while I'm all for getting rid of the pudge, sometimes you have to do what you can to fake it until you really do make it. Because nobody wants to go out feeling flabby, me included. The techniques for making this top are simple, but since it's kind of a lengthy explanation, I've split it into a couple posts. Check back on my other blog throughout the week for the rest of the tutorial.
"Adding Pockets" tutorial to learn how to do this with your own shorts. When I asked Sarah yesterday how her new pockets were working out, she said they were great. And she added that it's nice to not have to exercise in baggy sweatpants anymore, especially now that the weather is starting to get nicer. When she said that I thought how much I prefer to exercise in my more flattering workout clothes because they make me feel better and less self conscious, leaving me to concentrate on my exercise instead of on my clothes.
I have a couple more fitness-related projects in the works and when I have tutorials up for them I'll be sure to let you all know. It feels so great to be losing weight! It's finally fun to make/buy clothes for myself again! And I haven't felt that way since before I was pregnant. Speaking of which, did I ever tell you all that my pre-pregnancy weight was 150lbs? So I have been below my pre-pregnancy weight for the past few weeks now. Yay! Yay! Yay! Oh yeah! One more thing! I'm officially in the "normal" range for my BMI! Whoo-hooo! Best of luck with all of the wonderful goals you're working on!
Have a great week everybody!
