Hi all, I’ve just been ask to make a formal dress for a friend’s daughter. She’s approximately size 18 Australian (I’m a 12 and I think that makes me about a size 40/42 on here) and also quite short. I’m after flattering styles, fabrics, patterns etc to suit her figure.
Also, am I better off guiding her towards a pattern specifically for plus-sizes, or get a standard misses pattern available in large sizes? I think I know the answer but I’ll ask anyway.
Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance :)
Thank you Floralgirl :-)
I’ll take a look!
