181  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Trying to find the right kinds of things to make.......... on: February 17, 2010 10:42:36 AM
Hmmm... this is tricky. I have the same problem (my stomach s about 2 inches larger then my bust), but I find that empire waists draw attention to the bust and not the stomach. Maybe it's the length you're choosing? If it's too short or too long it can look like a preggy dress, but if you go longer (knee to mid calf), they actually look nice. Another tip with empire waits is not to go with anything skinny (like ribbon) under the bust, but something thicker, like 3 inches and more. You would not believe the difference it makes. Try and see if any of these make a difference.

I have the same problem. I have large hips and flabby arms and I hate to show them off. What I do is I tend to wear things that accentuate my bust (I have a smaller bust). For my arms, I tend to go with things that end right at my elbows, not slightly above or slightly below, but right at. It makes my arms looks skinner and a bit more porportioned with the rest of me.

Hi everyone!

I was so excited when I found this website because I'm so artsy fartsy and love sharing ideas and techniques with others like me!

This is the very first purse I've ever made. I wanted a bag with a lot of pockets and longer strap and couldn't really find anything that I liked, so I decided to make one. The main body came from a patterns, but the front and 2 side pockets, shoulderstrap and little straps down the front were all me. I made it out of a remnant of fabric (outer), and old pair of my husband's pants (inner lining) and another old purse and belt (hardwear, zippers and buckles). It's defiantely not perfect, but I'm really happy with it!



Any comments/critiques are appreciated!
