i could do with a couple of dress patterns.

i'm looking for sun dresses, short sleeve or sleaveless, that covers a size 14-16. and with a relatively tight bodice and loose skirt.

i'm only being specific, because that is what i want to make and i only want to take something that would be usedd by me not take other stuff as well that would be better off with a different home.

having decided that finding a sundress that will fit a 36F chest is impossible, i'm going to make one. A freind is going to teach me how to adapt patterns to fit

ROFLMAO....why DO they cut ALL sizes for a totally flat chest??? It really gets my goat. DD and I have the same problem. Anything over a 14 needs extra material in the front, not just to be X" wider! I made Pippa a halter neck dress a few years back, but I can't remember if we had a pattern(?) or if I made it up...I don't remember seeing it in my recent forays into the sewing cupboard of doom.

nel,

I'm not going to make it to the skill share, it's pilgrim's sister's wedding.

dawn: absolutely. I can't get my tits into size 18 dresses. not without them being forced into completely the wrong dhape. I thought that id I'd lost weight, then I could get some more girly clothes. but i can't. and i'm sulking.

if I could borrow the simplicity k4070 and the red polkadot sew couture, I would be eternally greatful. won't take long to sketch off a copy and return to you. pilgrim makes a great post boy.

then i can practice trying to make them fit.

I've made the simplicity one in the past....It's a doddle, and comes out really nicely.
