    I’m interested in runics and kimonos for plus size women. For that matter, anything nice for plus size women. I need some tops to wear over my leggings in a 2X.

    Practical non-clothing projects. Maybe a hundred ways to make cloth napkins with embellishments or something like that.

    I would like to see some more ‘novice’ dresses. I would also like to see really easy sewing projects that don’t require patterns (like the ‘Lazy Days Skirt’)

    With lack of time, I like small quick projects. Or at least ones that I can carry in my purse to work on when I have a moment or two.

    Lots more patterns (especially some free ones). Dresses that aren’t too detailed, so that you can build on the pattern and style it your own way.

    I would love to see more projects for the bigger girls as well as more petite sizes. My problem involves being 5’3" with a terribly short torso and i wear a US 14-16 (imagine a pear with a head on top, and that’s me). This puts me teetering between petites and women’s sizes. The tops of women’s clothing are tent-like on me and the bottoms of regular sizes tend to be a little snug. Maybe tutorials on how to adapt different patterns to work together to fit individual body shapes.
