Sizing Details: I sewed a size 20 bodice, grading out to a 22 at the waist and a size 24 at the hip.
This isn’t part of my normal colour scheme (except the mustard and blue stripes in there), but it was a linen remnant that I couldn’t pass up, and the stripes were obviously asking for the Lacey bodice.
Size Details: I sewed this in a size 22
Sizing Details: I
had a bit less linen than the pattern called for and I was also wider
& had larger arms than the model. Soo, I did lots of little
calculations on scraps of paper to increase the width of the body pieces
and also to increase the size of the arms.
At the time, there wasn’t much in the way of plus size apron dress patterns, and I loved the look of the cross back apron patterns that I’d seen, but wanted something that was more like a dress.
Sizing Details: I sewed a size J in the rushcutter, but omitted the top portion of the dress. There’s a pleat under each arm and the straps are just straps.
This Susan is made out of merino fabric for layering in the winter. I haven’t hemmed the bottom or fixed the shoddy neckline I put in either.
Size Details: I sewed a size 22 and am wearing it with a 47″ bust and 54″ hip
