Last Sunday, with a tape measure, graph paper, pens, and a calculator, I came up with a tank top pattern by measuring my own curves. I spent half a day knitting and sewing via my Bond machine. Then I slipped it on while squealing in delight because it's almost perfect, except a bit too cropped for my tiny beer belly, and the seams are too tight to block it longer. After this hectic week, I'll revise and knit up a different color.
Never before have I see a photo of my bare back. Let me tell you, I wasn't happy when I realized I had back fat! I had to arch my back just so to stretch the fat evenly across my back. I used to be a skinny little thing, and since gaining 20 pounds these past few years, I like that my girls are bigger and my butt is more J-Lo, the back fat has got to go!
