I'm fairly new to the idea of patterns, I've always been a reconstructor of clothes rather than a clothes maker but I picked up some amazing curtains at a rummage sale recently and would like to make them into a jacket. I'm a european size 18, but I'm very short and have a really large bust and hips (inproportion to my height).
I know the curtains may make me look like a short chubby von-trapp child but they really are something special.
anyway, what kind of pattern should I go for, and will I need to kind of tailor the pattern to fit me?
my bust is a european 34HH; I think about 41in around, i could be mistaken though.
