I love visiting them for many reasons, not the least of which is this character you see below.

The day I went was that magical one that us temperate-climate kids are familiar with. You know, that first day when it's actually warm. Where you can be outside without a coat on and the sun actually conveys a noticeable and exciting warmth.

I totally get why petite sizing is important (duh) and why it's a thing (nearly half the adult female population is petite!) and that I AM PETITE. So, if I'm going to the trouble of making clothes for myself, I might as well look to patterns that have a fit starting point that's closer to my actual body size, right?!
That said, I recognize that there's always going to be something that needs changing. My body won't fit all the size points set out in the pattern. The fit still isn't perfect, but I'm learning. And it's getting me excited for a project idea that may take a long time to see the light of day.
I know, that's a big time teaser. But for now, I'll ask you all a couple questions.
- Are you petite?
- What are some petite modifications you've had to do in ANY of your clothes (knit, sewn, off-the-rack)?
