I wish to start a group / make contacts with those who use patterns for what is commonly referred to as the ‘’plus size’’ women so I guess ( without insulting anyone or seeming that there is any discrimination going on as it is free for all) this would be anyone who is or has pattens for a UK size 12-14 + (USA size 10 . Reason(s)being I’m fed up of hoping for the best that I’ve graded my tiny patterns OK! So they will fit,I have seen in the last 2-3 months 2 other posts requesting dresses and patterns that would suit top heavy girls, another user has tried to promote more equality in terms of the models used by Burda which is fantastic. Burda has recently added a blog about selecting the ’’perfect’’ sized dress which is positive.
Please add me as a friend or message me or post something here this way a little community can be built and we can all have a good nose (lol) and see what other users/friends have been busy working on/ produced when you upload your pics………. and the best bit maybe even swap patterns and tips! And learn a few new tricks.
UPDATE: ADD EACH OTHER AS FRIENDS TOO. I WILL ADD ANYONE WHO’S INTERESTED TO MY FRIENDS LIST BUT THIS IS FREE FOR ALL. X
