You're doing awesome!  Besides, what fun is it when the organizer is organized?  Wink

Depending on the fabric, it can actually look really good! Another possible option is to get some wide lace and edge them in lace - just enough to cover the gaps, but still let a little light through, and they would be pretty and feminine.

.... You know, I've been wondering for YEARS how to wear a hat with my hair up. Then you come along and post this?? Can I bow down and worship now?? It's practical and awesome in that capacity, but super super cute, too! And if you did it in softer, pastel-ish colors, wouldn't it look like an upside down flower bud?

You stumped me. It will likely come in about an hour (when I'm not home any more).

I'm a 32B (barely - actually somewhere "between" an A and B) and have always had luck with vintage patterns with square necklines, or cowled tops (thanks for the reminder, llamas!). Avoid button-downs or V-necks, unless the V-necks are sort of heart shaped, so that the collar flares out a bit from the point. As llamas said, make sure the waist is cinched inward to accentuate what little curve there is.

Also, don't be afraid to accentuate your hips and butt! It's a sort of optical illusion. People see curves on bottom, their brain automatically sees more curves on top.

As for patterns (if the links will be excused - just from a quick 'net search) try something similar to these:

It could be worse. We completely missed my 30th birthday. We were moving, I had just finished massage school and was dealing with the national/state certification testing and getting a license, insurance, etc. About a month after the fact somebody said something and it downed on me that - holy crap - I'm 30!  Roll Eyes

Welcome to the world of the small! Secret: It's all in the bra.

Go have a professional bra fitting done. Victoria's Secret does them for free, and other lingerie stores should be able to do them as well. Take that knowledge and find a couple of good, comfortable bras that fit well. If your girls are far apart, try something that lifts from the side as well as from underneath, to push them a little closer together. You'd be surprised how well it works.

Once you've got the bra down, just about any outfit that accentuates the positive (think corset-style or square cut necklines) will look much better.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: When is a Decrease NOT a Decrease? on: December 27, 2010 02:58:39 AM
A lot of lace/eyelet patterns have multiple YO's in them to counterbalance all of the decreases. These count as the stitch increases, and keeps the pattern aligned.

I share a birthday with Louis Braille (which is why I'm so blind to things sometimes  Wink ). Not sure if I'll play or not, but...
