Dear Alex Cole

I post fashion and DIY here. My mother taught me to sew when i was a little girl. I taught myself how to draft patterns from books at the local college library. It's not hard! Also i use one of THE mots annoying themes for no other reason than it reminds me of piles of photographs.

• shirts actually designed for girls with larger chests
• plus size clothing ACTUALLY intended to accommodate plus size people not just scaled up littler clothing
• clothes for tall people that won’t ride up
• pants for people with no butts
• cute bras in bigger sizes
•the fashion industry’s understanding that there’s lots of body types and every body type deserves to feel good in the clothes they wear
