Yup I’m a chuffer these days.
This is despite going on Weight Watchers and reaching a lovely weight, learning to run (Couch to 5K is an excellent programme), doing 2 mini – triathlons and walking absolutely everywhere.
Thankfully there is a very good reason for being a Chubby McChubster….
Anyway finding patterns for new and expanding Chubsters is a challenge. I have a few from last time I was a chuffer but was hoping for a few more.
Actually for all that the instructions are still poo the diagrams were quite good.
I used a nice stretch cotton I got from Remnant Kings in Edinburgh. I think it was about £8 a metre but can’t really remember. I also used french seams on most of it. Hopefully soon I’ll have an overlocker which will make all this a lot easier.
Clearly there is lots of room for growth. Hopefully this means when I’m at my chubbiest it should fit without flashing my (ugly) bra to the world.
I’ve got a few more patterns to do but would love to know what sewing patterns other chuffers have used during this time of their lives.
