How cute, I love your little figure drawing.  Stay tuned on this board for shirt ideas.  Plus, there are some listed already, so look around and stay in touch for more ideas.

I think this look is really flattering: http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=9840&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=1357&iMainCat=49 to mask a tummy arm flab but emphasize bust. I'd like to know how to make it. Seems pretty easy--a back panel and two front ones, but I want to know how to do the front so the bust gets a decent amount of coverage but is still sexy. Any ideas?

One might need to add some gathering (sheared) under the bustline to allow enough coverage of the breasts. This would be a really flattering pattern I should think. I'd also suggest measure carefully to allow enough fabric for good coverage.  I imagine it would be beautiful in a light weight jersey knit or a silky type of fabric.

I have a tummy and big breasts. so usually shirts like that show off what I want and hide what I want. Get what I mean?

I am wondering if you ladies can suggest patterns that show off the girls but dont look trashy...
I mean I want to go out to the bar and look hot but not easy.

I think that she has the right amount of cleavage. It looks sexy but good.

it's as much the proper bra as anything else. for me, i can wear a square tank top and it'll look MUCH more skanky than a v neck that goes down to the bottom of my breasts - depending on what bra i have on.

i think really fitted button down shirts are very flattering for bigger girls

i don't really care for the clingly super strech fabric i see in a lot of plus sized stores. i think it just makes people look fatter.

Can I just say I am so excited to have a section of craftster for those of us who are a little more curvy than others!!! I am rather busty too. I have noticed that if I find something that fits loosely (like not suffocating "the girls") then the shoulder seams go down to the middle of my upper arm. Is this the case with any one else or am I alone?

it happens to me to - i work at american eagle and ALL the stuff does it to me, it's really frusterating... mediums are a bit too tight and with large the shoulder seam hangs way too much Sad it sucks.
