1  Plus Size Prom Dress in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by Whizkid! on: March 11, 2010 01:59:57 PM
Hey everyone!
Okay, so this year is my junior prom, and I intend to make my own dress. My only problem is that I don't know where to start. I can't find any patterns, because I'm plus sized, and as far as making it completely from scratch without a pattern or any kind of walk-through... Yeah, that's not going to happen. So I would be eternally grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Here's what I want in a dress:
1) I'm plus-sized, and I hate my arms, but I do like my shoulders, so I was thinking of an off-the-shoulder type deal with longer sleeves, sort of like Winona Ryders dress in the movie Edward Scissorhands, which I can't find a good picture of AT ALL (so if you've got a better one, feel free to post it.) But generally this is it:

2) I was also thinking of doing a swing/psychobilly type dress with a circle skirt that goes a bit past my knees.

3) I have no idea what to do about the bodice. /:

So, if you can provide any help whatsoever -tutorials/links/pattern for the skirt, ideas for the bodice, anything- I will be forever in your debt! Also, if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks! <3

2  Does Anybody Else Get the Hoodie Puff? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Whizkid! on: January 02, 2010 07:55:54 AM
Aaalright, so here's the story:
I have two pull-over hoodies that I'm trying to make into one. I have a great plan for a side opening, and if I ever get it done, it's probably going to be my favorite sweate EVER.
But I seem to have run into a problem. ):

I want my hoodie/sweater/jacket/whatever to be cute, and not make me look like a heffer, like most hoodies do, because I always seem to buy men's hoodies and they all have a puff at the waistband, which makes pretty much everyone look fat. Y'know what I'm taking about?

Okay, here's a picture of what I'm talking about:

So here's my question: Is there a way to get rid of this? How do you think I can?
