The problem with all the patterns in my stash is that they have a waist! I used to have one too!!!! But not anymore. The whole belly fat, no waist effect of age has hit me. If I lose weight, will I gain it right back? Am I going to have to start watching everything I eat so I can fit into my vintage clothes? Or do I just change decades and go for the loose fitting clothes of the 60's and 70's? But then I run the risk of even gaining more weight.
