Mission Statement

Uncategorized

Before I tell you about myself I want my mission to be clear. I want to use this as a platform to speak about my experiences as a fat girl in fashion school who desires to make fashionable clothes for round bodies like my own. I don’t want to talk about the trials and tribulations of being fat or how I have come to accept my rolls and belly. Although I may go on rants sometimes! 🙂 Most importantly I want to create a community of round bodies who are daring to look great. I want us to be connected so that we can make real change in this industry and world.

  1. Hello lady! I just find out about your blog and I am so happy that I randomly typed “patterns/bodices for high fashion plus size clothes”!!! For the little story, I have been drawing for years already without getting anything done (in the country I live in you can actually pay about 3-5$ to get a simple gown done if you have a drawing), because I knew I wouldn’t get it done the way I would like it to be done, the way I would do it if I could…. These past weeks my inspiration went over the top and I would stay up all night drawing. I was angry at my closet which is far from BEING my style, or DEFINING myself. Then a friend offered me her small electric sewing machine and I thought “dear God, is this a sign? I mean You know I have no idea how to sew, right? But I learn quickly…This better be workin! Please do not make me do this for no reason!”. So here I am, bringing back all my drawings and ready to make my own clothes, learning on the internet how to sew since there’s no fashion schools in my country. If I have to, I will pay someone to help me out and sew the more difficult patterns while I learn. I would like to open a boutique for plus size clothes! I love what you do, it’s amazing. I hope you could be on YouTube :)! I have to end this looong comment now!

    1. Wow!I’m so glad you found my blog, this is what it’s all about! I am going through the same thing with my closet right now 😦 I wish I could be there to help you sew! It’s a difficult process but it’s totally worth it! If you have any questions for me at all please let me know and I will try and answer them in a blog post or email! I am working with a friend to create some youtube videos soon! I would love to see some of your drawings? I bet they are awesome! So glad to have met you on the internet! Feel free to email me @ lieslbinx@gmail.com
