As long as you are using stretch fabric then you probably should be ok, but the pattern sizes are not true to store sizes in the LEAST! All patterns are that way. I am size 28 in regular retail stores and in patterns I have to make a size 26/28 bust and size 32 hip Shocked I merge the lines for the size 28 bust into the lines for the size 32 hips on every piece to achieve the hourglass look these have. If making for a friend with a pattern you most likely would have to measure first to get a perfect fit, but you could ballpark it if you were comfortable.

Without this pattern..this might be tricky, but you could get a shirt that is known to fit them well, and then make a pattern from it to use. I really haven't come up with a good way to do this without a pattern sadly. Undecided
It's possible that you can attempt it with a dressform maybe, with a lot of effing time to put into getting it right. LOL Cheesy

Those rock! I've been running out of ideas on how to take my many too small t shirts and make them bigger. I will def. need to try something like this.

Check out the UK eBay Guarantee you'll find something there you'll like...or you can check out eBay US and mostly they will ship to other countries (of course youd have to pay extra shipping)

Being a full figured woman myself, I have to say these kick ass! Thank you so much for sharing and for the pattern number. I can never find any good patterns in my size.

Wow, these are awesome!!  Very fun, and they look really well-made.

As a size 30 woman, I can't tell you how excited I am to see this, it seems like there are so many posts about people reconning shirts that are too big, but none where people use shirts that are too small.  And at my size, *all* the cool shirts are too small.  Definitely gotta find that pattern and try it out.  Smiley

That green ribbon trim on the pink and the purple/black striped shirts is the little detail that really makes it great.  You have an awesome sense of color...I think it's easy to have a project like this flop and end up looking sort of dorky, but you've really gotten the look just right.  Smiley
