More Plus Size Patterns at GoofingOff Sewing

While at my stitch group a friend of mine told me “I used to sew for myself but now I’ve gotten bigger. All the patterns are for smaller women.” OK, I thought, I have a mission….find plus size patterns for full figured women and sell them in my shop.

Then…while out and about, I found a treasure trove of lovely patterns in larger sizes. I’ve been listing them in my Etsy shop, GoofingOff Sewing. Here are more of the treasures.

I feel like a bit of a heroine….providing beautiful patterns for us larger women. All be it a small part but still a part. And to celebrate I think I should have a sale on Full figure patterns. Like 30% off this next weekend. Grab them while you can.

Hugs.

New Listings at GoofingOff Sewing

 I have so much going on that I almost don’t know where to start. The first fundraiser for our medical mission is done and it was a success! Just the right amount of chili, cornbread, and fixings, lots of friends and family, and donations to buy medical supplies for those in need. The venison chili came out great. We had chili to go and that sold out, too. We might hold another fundraiser closer to Christmas featuring our Mission Cookies.

This week is our yard sale with proceeds going to our mission expenses. We need money for translators, food and lodging, and transportation.  It’ll give me a chance to clear some things out that I haven’t had a chance to list on Etsy. Folks have donated a few things to help out. I have a number of vintage rolling pins and teapots to set out among other things. Wish us luck.

In the meantime I have new patterns in GoofingOff Sewing…..great holiday dresses for the girls, outfits for the ladies, and a few things for the guys with just enough time to put together a few gifts.

Pants for a personal fit from the 1970’s.

Vintage Atomic Age Buttonholer and 3 Ways to Look Great

I love to sew AND get inspired by surrounding myself with beautiful things. The buttonholer case does that…and good to have for those vintage sewing machines around the house. As for the patterns…What’s not to love about 40’s style, long evening dresses, or slinky skirts with a slit to there? All I need is a Glen Miller playing “In the Mood.” So kick your shoes off and enjoy!

Vintage Singer Buttonholer with atomic age case in dusty rose. Complete set with buttonhole templates and instructions. Excellent condition. So the case looks great….great enough to use for trinkets if you don’t have the machine anymore. Can’t believe I said that.

Simplicity 2442 Misses' Evening Dress in size 14-16-18-20-22, Bust 36-44 inches. UNCUT

Simplicity 2442 Misses’ Evening Dress with Bolero

Simplicity 2442 Misses’ Evening Dress with Bolero. Dress in three lengths with neckline variations. Size 14-22, bust 36-44 inches.
