Hope I can. I still loved the swap and my sewing skills have improved over the last couple of years.

OK, goddessgarb let me know about this swap. I was flaked on last year and lirilen was the most amazing angel. I would love to play. I'm a size 16 now, so can I still play?
I vote yes!!! I always said a 'teen' in your size is considered a plus. Especially if you're short. But I think 16 should count regardless. (PS sorry you got flaked on last year - suckage!!)

i vote yes too, most stores start plus size at 14, some even start it at 12. although i've noticed some place have kind of an overlap for sizes 12-16 where they're both in the regular and plus sections which i find funny

Haha, Lane Bryant! I used to work there. We carried all the way down to an occasional 12, in undies!!

Man I would love LOVE to do this! Unfortunately I have nowhere to cut fabric at the moment Sad I could customize clothing but that probably wouldn't be as cool as being able to make something completely by hand and crocheting/knitting takes FOREVER and I've not made any adult sized clothing yet in that fashion.. :/ I would simply LOVE this though I guess I will stalk and hope for a round 3 to be held when we are moved into our new place!

I think altered clothing would be fun too. I have stenciled shirts and enlarged things that were too small. I would love to have one of those cute altered tees but they dont make shirts that huge. Some of those tutorials make me upset since they still assume that the wearer has access to shirts they swim in.

Scarves, cowls, head bands and bangles would all count as a knitted or crochet accessory. Jewelry would count too I think, so ther are many options outside sewing from scratch.

or those tutes where they turn a men's button up shirt into a dress "i found a medium sized mens shirt, so it was big enough to turn into a dress with plenty left over" yeah sorry but a shirt that small is neither long enough to fit over my butt let alone big enough around to fit elsewhere
