I know another fellow Crafter did a recon of this a while back and it was adorable! I wanted to show you guys my take on this as a big, beautiful, wild woman! (BBW- my way)  Grin

I bought a 3X at Walmart and it fit me fine, if not baggy in the chest. But the hips were ok for me. I decided to do my version of Psychobilly Meets 1920s Flapper!

I just made a skirt, gathered and attached it. Also a neckline and sleeve re-shaping were needed. I think it turned out adorable!
I also used fabric pen to add color to the shirt. Hope you guys likey! If you want to see action shots at my band gig, head on over to my blog  Kiss

Stay Glam!

Your BBW version is BRILLIANT!  I eat your hair and poise in contrast to the not so demure dress, it totally brings out your style and attitude!

Wow. That is really lovely.  I like the touches of colour you added to the top part. And the fabric you chose for the skirt works so well; it is exactly right.  Well done and thanks for all the pictures.  You look great in it.
