I need 3 sewers.

Attention lovely people.
I need 3 experienced sewers to do testing for me on my pattern, The Shelley.
I'm working on the grading now, but I want to get some people to sew a bare bones version of it to see how my grading is. You know the drill. Looking for people as CLOSE to my sizing chart as possible.
Need a 40-42 bust, a 50 bust and a 58-60 bust. Ill mail you a rough pattern and email the instructions. Would appreciate a simple mock up of the pattern in a week from getting it. Ill have oodles of questions!
If interested, please email me at contact(at)newvintagelady(dot)com and tell me what size range you want to try. First come first served.

Id totally appreciate the help.

The NVL pin is here!

Hi all. For those following along on my kickstarter adventure, I'm well underway. I post at least an update a week there, so if you want to stay in the know, that's the place to check first.

I just got the NVL pins from the manufacturer and they look great!

Here was the proof they sent and here is the final!


I have listed some extras in my etsy store if you all would love a cool lapel pin to show your support.
Alright, back to work!

Fat People on TV: the 2016 edition

I haven't done this series in a while and frankly, it's because there have not been many fat people on TV lately.

With #oscarssowhite last year, and minorities of all stripes fighting for representation, you are starting to see more different types of characters being shown in TV and movies. Sometimes, that isn't the case for fat people. Most of the time when characters are fat, often like race, it's a huge if not singular part of their story arch or the main focus of the show/series altogether.

With diversity becoming a mainstay instead of a novelty, thankfully we are seeing more types of different people exploring different dynamics of the same root identity. Fat people too.

If you recall my last post on Fat People on TV, I highlighted quite a lot of different shows. Some I thought were stellar and gone too soon, and others I felt could bump it up a bit. This time is no different and while I'm sure I haven't seen all the shows of diversity in body representation, I want to showcase some that really stood out to me this year and perhaps a couple years before.
