Glad to be here to discuss sewing and only those subjects truly close to my heart.

I've been reading for a couple of weeks and the atmosphere seems incredibly supportive.


I've sewn for many decades, but fitting this middle-aged body is proving quite problematic. Yuck pooey!

The support here is inspirational and I hope to help with tutorials once I join as a full member in a few weeks.

The Daks/tunneled waistband has been an eye opener for me. Elastic waist without the 'old fat lady look"!  But like all good things - there's extra work involved.

Welcome Esme.  You'll certainly get plenty of advice and support here and probably be led astray too.

 :toast: Cheers Esme866. I enjoyed your input into the Style thread. I've definitely got the problems you mention and more,  and sewing for myself has completely reinvigorated my wardrobe.
