That which we cannot have

I always want the things that I can’t have. The more unattainable, the more I want it. Same goes for clothing styles. I want the kind of clothes that I don’t have the figure for–and there are a lot of them! A perfect example?

That’s right. I want this blouse, and not only are my boobs too big for something like this (unless I want everyone to talk to my chest), but so is my stomach…and well, it just wouldn’t be pretty.

On a happier note, I found a pair of Jalie jeans that I started to make a long time ago that were too small at the time–since I’ve lost some weight, they look like they’ll fit now with minimal tweaking. Yay! All they need are some tweaks at the upper side seams, attaching the waistband and a hem. Most of the topstitched area is completed, so they shouldn’t take but a couple of hours, and I’ll have another pair of jeans to add to my dwindling supply of jeans that fit. 🙂 Even better? These are some of that sexy stretch denim in a super dark wash that I had the excellent sense to use the off-white topstitching thread on. These babies are gonna be gorgeous. 🙂

  1. I totally do this! Especially over wasp-waisted fifties dresses. And halter-styled anything. Actually trying it on usually remind me why I don’t do that (oh yeah, cinching belts over blousy tops is another big booboo), but of course with sewing you can only do that *after* you’ve put a bunch of work in. Maybe head to the mall and try on something similar?

    That’s great news about the jeans! Hope they turn out grrreat! 😀

    • Oh yeah, anything that emphasizes the waist that I don’t have calls to me. And I hear ya on the halter styles–I think you have to have some perfect cup size for those to look normal instead of either sadly unfilled or “Take cover! Those straps are going to break any second!” I’ve been on both sides of that fence. 😉

  2. The shading at the cleavage is a hint this is not for those whose cups runneth over. MIght work with a fake camisole piece of lace across the front, but I don’t think the diagonal seam lines will really work well.

    • I should learn to reread when I back track on a comment, I leave these half finished thoughts.
      I was going to say I don’t think the diagonal lines would work well for me. It might always look like it should be lower.

      • I often wish you could edit comments, but the powers that be just don’t seem to think that would be a useful feature or something. Eh, I don’t think it would work for me either, because my cups also runneth over….and because I have a pot belly that I don’t feel like showing off to the world, lol!
