1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Plus size (indie) patterns on: April 11, 2014 02:48:28 AM
Burda Style magazine (the European edition) always has a plus sized section of fantastic clothing (I seriously wish they were available in my size) and they put out a just plus sized issue a few times a year.

Ottobre women's magazines also have a decent size range (I don't know the exact range off the top of my head though)

I have used the Ottobre magazines quite a lot lately, and not all models in every magazine cover the whole size range, but quite a few of them do. The range is from 34-52 European sizes.
For my body type, the fit is better than the fit in the Burda Plus Size magazines. at ottobredesign.com you can look at the different models in each issue, and it states the size. (I know there are conversion charts on the internet, for comparing the sizes)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Got a dress form, how do I use it? on: February 12, 2013 03:36:52 AM
You could also use the dress form to drape and design upcycled garments- only creativity is your limit; undo 1-2 seams of an old garment, turn it around, 90 - 180 degrees and go crazy with your pins. Stitch it loosely and try it on yourself during the process, but it can really amaze you the results you get from doing it directly on a dress form  Grin
I started with a jeans shirt, took apart the side seam, turned it 90 degrees and fastened it to the dress form. From that point onward it suddenly turned into a peplum top Smiley
Good luck, it is often the start of the project that is hard Smiley

It is hard to pick a favourite among all these lovelies!
The red one with the mittens are so cute, but then I saw the snowcrystals, and love the colour combination of those, and must also agree with your husband that the tree has a nice design.

And just today we discussed at work how Toadstools of this variety often is used as christmas decorations here in Norway, however, with a red hat Smiley

The details are very good!!
(Perhaps the moderator has read the text on the magazine under the figures and found the last name in the Swedish text to be of a mature nature? I can assure you, it is not Wink )
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: what do you think? i need feedback! on: November 16, 2012 12:06:00 AM
I think your stuff is very nice, the Toile-purse and the reversible messenger bag are my favourites.

As far as I know, your situation is quite similar to what Norwegian crafters experience at similar events. -people prefer to buy cheaper, mass-produced goods, and the crafters that gets lots of sales are the ones offering small, inexpensive items. (such as toiletry bags, earwarmers, mittens and scarves, christmas ornaments etc.)

It might be different as I am in the north of Europe, so I am crossing my fingers that you will find what works for you Smiley
