Today is about a well-deserved shout out to the wonderful, brilliant women at the Curvy Sewing Collective. When I was first contemplating this dive back into apparel sewing, I traveled far and wide -across the digital globe- to see what resources and support I could find. While there are many wonderful websites with tutorials, blogs, and tips, this is the one site I keep returning to. Again, and again, and again!
So much freely shared knowledge, positivity, and encouragement. All from -and for- women with curves, bumps, and bulges that don't always line up with what the ready to wear clothing market wants to offer us.
I see women of all shapes, sizes, and ages working together to help empower others to own our own brand of beautiful, weather that's in a pencil skirt, t-shirt, or a swim suit. And I see, in the comments left behind, the impact that these gifts of sharing are having on others.
Thank you, CSC. I know that I am stronger and will grow even more along this journey with you beside me!
