len's mill is by far the best place i've seen for pin up girl fabrics and barkcloth and skulls and retro prints and batiks . hamilton's ottawa street has good priced fabric, but it's about half upholstery fabric and half clothing fabric.i have spent many happy hours there and in t.o. Cheesy len's has a lot but the prices are more expensive. i tend to pay though 'cause you just don't find the stuff anywhere else. if you aren't near a len's, they always have a HUGE booth at the creative sewing and needlework festival. oh, october i can hardly wait! i hope this helps some!

Try doing a search for clothing for hourglass and larger figures on the boards.  I know this topic has come up before and there's been a lot of really great answers.
thanks. i did try both but mostly came up with sweaters or knitting. i didn't really find how to alter a pattern or if there are patterns out there that would need little altering or even just anything, any other ideas. it could be that 'cuz i'm new to this whole thing, i'm just not looking in the right places.

there are some patterns out there as well. butterick 4114 has the crinoline pattern and the skirt and some appliques and mccall's 8899 has skirt and jacket and appliques. i usually use bias binding on the bottom of my full skitrs 'cuz i hate heming full skirts and i can't find felt that's not crafting felt.so i use whatever i fabric i want.
hope this helps

hi! hi!
this is my first post! i am soooo happy that i found this site! i live in a small city and the only other people i know that sew or craft actualy like the ducks with bonnets and pooh bear on everything! they are all grammas and cool in their way, but it is not my way. anyway, i hope someone somewhere can help me!i am at my wits end! and i didn't have to many wits to begin with!
 i have the classic hourglass figure and am having a lot of trouble finding or sewing (which i'd rather do anyway) tops. i wear around a g cup. does anyone know how to alter patterns to accomadate such craziness?i have a small back and shoulders and waist as well. i have had a few weddings this summer(including mine!) and it always involves me trying to make a shirt, failing horribly and then running around trying to find something in the stores which i don't have a lot of luck with either. i end up using eyelets and ribbon to tie a lot of my things together.
any advice would be great!
atomic mary
