I have a question for all those of you who make your own clothes... how do you deal with weight loss? I have a long, long list of projects on my to-do list, but I've been hesitating to start any of them because I'm in the process of losing weight and getting into better shape.
This fitness goal is not really so much because I want to be smaller... although that would be a nice side effect... as for health reasons. I'm a little bit overweight and I have medical conditions that make this a bad thing, so I'm really trying to shed a few pounds. It's slow. (I like food too much and exercise is not my first choice of a good time.) But it is happening, and that's where it affects my sewing.
So... what do you do? Do you just wait to make that new dress or the outfit you're craving? Or do you make it in the size you wear now, and plan to take it in later if you drop some inches? Or do you make it in a smaller size as incentive to exercise? I really don't know what to do here and I'd love some feedback :)
