Sewing block be gone

I'm very embarrassed to say that until a few months ago I had a major block in my brain when it came to sewing clothes. Now, I sew for a living ; bags, covers, tarps, shades you name it. Just Not Clothes.
Now thankfully due to a unique mix of determination, embarrassment, online classes (craftsy), real in person classes (Julie Red Projects), a passion for fabric and obsession with vintage patterns, I can loudly and proudly say that I got over a major issue in my life without the help of any mental professional.
I'll start to document my successes and probable failures here as it is taking up all my current domestic time.
Knitting is still happening with at least one project on the go at a time.
Hoodie from a 1980's pattern. Very small fit, this is a size 7 on my 4yr old

had to add a lining, made from an old soft singlet and stitched lines
