1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Apple shaped with a bodonkadonk bum. on: April 06, 2010 06:20:33 PM
Patterns for those afflicted with bodonkadonk butts and spare tires?
Alright, I'm a curvy RTW size 22-24 woman, mostly apple shaped, but lacking in the tittery department, with quite the able to support a cup rear.

Being this is my general shape, there are only a few things that look good on me, such as tunic with the cross over the heart, empire waists, and shirts that show my upper chest area.
Now, i'd have a lot more clothing options, but my left arm has a tattoo on the upper bicep, i greatly regret it and wish i could afford laser treatment. So, nothing sleaveless.

So, we have empire-waisted tunics with sleeves. This does not bode well for summer wear. I am fully aware that at any time i can add basic cap sleeves to any pattern, but i am not -that- adept at sewing as to make sleeves without a pattern. The closest I've ever come to such, was when i had a dress form that matched my measurements to drape on. Now i don't, so that poses a problem.

Does anyone with the Eggman syndrome have patterns to share? They can't be expensive, i make minimum wage as a bus aide.

(As for the Eggman syndrome, either look up Eggman or Dr.Robotnik from the Sonic series.)

D'oh. Can a mod or admin move this to the proper forum, i swear i didn't post this in the completed section, but it's ended up here anyway.
(Skip to the last 2 paragraphs in the case of TL:DR.)
First, i'm gonna start off saying that i am a dress size 22-26 depending on the cut and what person decided to have their own measurement system. This being the case, it's very hard to find Victorian esque clothing for my form, a recent Rasputina concert proved this to me.

Now, every year, In December, my little city has a Victorian stroll, meaning, the entire downtown area is turned into an 1850's Victorian winter wonderland. Though the 1850's is a mere guess, you will find a graying Samuel Wilson(Uncle Sam) walking about.

Now, I know what kind of dress i want, it's the dress that Katrina Von Tassel is wearing at the very end of Burton's Sleepy hollow. http://www.polyvore.com/sleepy_hollow/thing?id=654021

I have the outer dress designed in my head currently, and I have the corset, Petticoat, and socks to go with it. But the issue is with the under dress it's self, particularly the back. What i Need is a good reference to a dress shaped similarity, with a clear view of the back bustle. I can guess all i want, but that might not work out well.
