I love this thread. Thanks OP for the inspiration. I love  how you shaded your croqui to really highlight your curves. She's beautiful:) I'm finishing up my 3rd quarter at fashion design school and as a curvy girl myself have decided to do my line for curvy ladies. I really liked how you used Photoshop to fit the patterns to your croqui, I'm going to have to play around with that. Thanks for the advice on how to make your own croqui, I think that will be my next task!

Those are BEAUTIFULLY done croquis'! The texturing is amazing. Mine are lame in comparison. Big girls, not perfect girls, every girl (and some guys) should learn technical drawing over a croquis when they make clothes. It's the second-most-important skill for self-sewers taught in school after making a sloper.

I love a lot of those patterns. Things change from person to person on preferences. Not all girls with this body shape want to follow the conventional "Must Be An Hourglass!" idea. Some like a flowy look from underbust to ankles because it makes them feel like they're floating, some like to play up an ample bosom and booty by making it tight around those areas. It's all about personal style, then fitting that style with specific features.

Fit is #1! No fit, no style! Bad darting, misplaced shoulder seams, wrinkles in stretch fabrics where it's supposed to skim the body by design... just not as cute.
