So I am thinking about going as a Rockford Peach player from the A League of Their Own (which I do realize was based on a real life team).
But my issue is trying to find a sewing pattern for a Rockford Peach Uniform that could fit someone sized 20/22. I am pretty much a basic/moderate level of sewing so extreme modifications or adjustments kind of scare me. I am willing to settle for a pattern that just has the correct kind of collar and skirt and just wing with the buttons as long as it is in my size. Does anyone have any advice or tips? Thanks in advance! Also here is a photo for reference:

My walmart sells all kinds of patterns but 90% of them are in weee-tiny sizes (like sizes 0-8 and I'm a size 14-16 on most things)... I cheat... I put my pattern over freezer paper and keep tracing it outwards (2 pencils taped together works usually) and just keep adding seam allowances until you get the overall measurement you need =)
Might wanna try that if you can find a pattern you like even if it isnt in the correct size..I'm not really mathematically inclined but I've managed to do it pretty easily =)
