Oh, so tempting!  I'm interested, but am so busy with other swaps right now.  I guess I have until the 20th to decide and maybe by then I'll have made more progress on my other swaps.

Wist list

Will do private swaps for keys, cogs, and steampunk goodness.

I just signed up for the International Snack Swap, but this looks so fun!

I have a stupid hard time finding clothing to fit my body, especially dresses and shirts that fit right.

My problem is my chest. =(  I have a 34DD chest, so if anything fits up top everything is really baggy around the middle.

And does anyone else have a problem with dresses coming up too short? I'm 5'9 so with the height and the boobs taking up extra fabric dresses always end up butt skimming length on me. lol

I am a newbie to sewing, but I do make jewelery....would that work for the large?  I am very interested in this being plus sized....

Yes, jewelry would qualify, as long as points wise it qualifies as 3 (large) points.

For all those intimidated by the wearable item requirement....

It does not have to be literally an article of clothing, it can be jewelry, footwear, headwear, lingerie...anything that a person can actually wear.

fit concerns, I would much rather a plus size person make me clothes then a skinny person. In doubt? Ask your partner! Most people know what types of clothing look best on them and they can give you any measurements you need! Also, some people would most likely be able to alter something that may not fit perfectly.

Just my thoughts for those of you on the fence!

Dang, I have SO many personal commitments, but I TOTALLY adore making clothing....and being plus size, I'm all about the knowledge on fit issues and making clothes to fit us Smiley

Sundresses, apron tops, and lounge pants have been my staples as of late.  I also make a variety of jewelry, and having 8" wrists and 11" ankles...standard, commercial jewelry does not fit me, so I'm all over making jewelry to fit the right sizes as well.

Argh...gonna have to keep an eye on this and see if I can clear my plate enough to 'allow' myself to join Tongue
