1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Plus Size Help!!! on: December 30, 2011 06:38:22 AM
I saw that book on amazon as well but was very skeptical. Should I get this book? The only things I have sewn in pillows and a tote. I am such a newbie so I guess I am scared of investing in a book that is not for my experience level. When will I know that I am more advanced to move on to other projects? Many many questions lol.

Well, I just bought it. Thanks for the referral.

Thank You so much for your helpful response. I have checked the website and I remember reading a blog entry on Gertie's Blog that was a Q&A from Carolyn about plus sized patterns and some contest.

I am excited to learn to alter. Good luck to you as well.

To start off I am new to sewing. The reason why I wanted to sew was because I am plus sized and I have a pretty hard time shopping for DECENT clothing that IS NOT ugly. The drape of clothing on my chest, which measures at 56'', varies greatly. I am not a fan of showing off bosom and I do not do well with turtlenecks!

Digressing, I wanted to sew so my clothing would fit and be beautiful at the same time but I felt burned by the patterns that I find that STILL DO NOT carry my size Sad. I did check out Connie Crawford. There were some nice selections there but still limited. Any advice or know-how to alter commercial patterns??

(Retail I wear about 20-22)
Measurements are from top, waist, hip: 56", 48", 53"

Thanks so much in advance!

~Desperately Searching, Gleamy.

I crochet as well. I talked about sewing for a year and finally got a machine for Christmas (I opened it before Christmas). i completely lost the will to crochet and have been sewing some pillows.

I can definitely relate to the crooked lines. I sew with white thread so that it is hard to see on my fabric. I hope you have fun with it none the less and keep practicing!
