This is Simplicity 2247 done in a cotton print bought from J and O Fabrics (on line- google if you wanna look- great selection)

I did upgrade this with 4 inches in the hips (left the waist as a size 28) and did some taking in at the upper bust. I also raised the neckline and lowered the bottom hemline. If you want to know how I did this in more detail, I have a series of plus size sewing videos (done with this pattern) on my channel http://www.youtube.com/user/MsPsychoSue
It's sew much easier to just show yinz how I do these instead of writing. I am a person who learned sewing by:
1. trial and error
2. watching videos

So I figured that the sexy curvy women out there need a sewing guru right?

Wow! That's a really great dress. It fits you really well. I'd never have the guts to wear it myself, but I really wish that I did. The red sleeves and hem are a great finishing touch. You own that design  Cool

As usual, I hit ROCKS...you are so talented it's inevitable!  My 4 yr old son walked up and said "WHOA!", that's a great compliment right there.  Thanks for recommending J and O Fabrics!
