Fall Planning and Humble Pie



A few weeks back McCalls posted a blog about designer sewing, they also posted excellent work by Amanda did on Donna Karan V1440 Tunic.

In the comments I mentioned that it is hard for me to find designer patterns that flatter my plus size shape. This is true, especially with the Summer patterns, however I must make a retraction.


I have found several Fall patterns that are potentially flattering:



Anne Klien V1467;  Tom and Linda Pratt V1435
Ralph Rucci V1239; Designer joi M7245



I have material ready to go for Tom and Linda V1435 and Deigner Joi M7245, however I decide to cut out B6256




As you can see I have decided to use basic black, I have also decided to use a nice floral print for the lining, which I'll share with you once I complete the suit.


Then there is this cute number:




It was a gift from Sew Plus on a thrift store run :-) I have fabric for this too, however with the rapid weather change, am going to save it for Spring.


Well thats the update for now, and remember one stitch ar a time.
