So I have a dilemma. I'm a bigger girl, ranging from a 16-20ish when measurements on a pattern. Now that's not a problem because I'm alright with my shape, and so is my boy but my problem is I can't find a good punkish dress for a summer wedding. His best friend is getting married in august and this will be my first impression. I'm looking for any advice on a pattern for a good dress. I want to show off that i have a good personality and that i'm crafty because they're both big parts of me. http://www.sohos.co.uk/acatalog/punk-dresses.html
I like a lot of those dresses but most of them are a bit to trampy for me to wear if i'm not going to a club. Any help will be welcome and I'll definitely post pictures of what I do make. Thanks!!

These all have similar shapes to some of the dresses you posted, and with the right fabric selection and accessories, could both be very appropriate for a wedding, and express your own personal style.  I would really recommend not wearing black...that could go over very badly with the bride.  Good luck!

And it IS all about looking past the fabrics they show on the patterns--imagine your own fabric with your own decorations and little additions/subtractions to add to your style.  Just think of the patterns as the base of the garment and build the style element from there, whether that means adding bondage straps, cool ribbon accents, contrasting colored fabrics, or anything else you can imagine, go for it!
