    Since I have the opposite problem (not enough curves, or maybe I should simply say I’m not quite as curvy as I’d ideally like to be and putting on weight doesn’t help that one for me so I won’t) I can’t really take part in your group. But. I just wanted to add that every time I look through the Burda WOF magazines, I like the plus-size clothes the best… they get something right. Plus size-clothes that make us skinnies jealous make me happy to see. I hope you succeed, good luck!

      Hello Ichigogirl,

      I do not have your issue of “not as curvy” but am considered average size. I also love the plus size clothes in the Burdastyle magazine much better.
      I have several family members that are sizes 18 and up but find that when they wear fitted clothing, they always look so proud of their shape and more confident. My grandmother, who is 82 and still goes white water rafting, is a size 18 at 5’5" and would never be caught in clothing that was not form fitting. She looks beautiful! I am 42 and not as confident in my appearance at a U.S. size 8!

      Ladies, rejoice in your body! You are beautiful!

    I used to be a UK size 24. I’m now more of a 14… Need to get the extra off for health reasons. But yes, there is a dearth of nice patterns for anyone larger than a size 16, so best of luck!

    I am very excited to see your collection! I’ve been looking patterns for cute plus sized tops on Burda… and im a little dissappointed. There seem to be many skirt and dress patterns, which are nice, but what will I wear with the cute skirts I make?! I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store!

    Proper clothes for us larger ladies would be brilliant. I am so sick of seeing things that look like sacks designed for people to hide under, although teh Burda/Burdastyle patterns are always nice :) Looking forward to seeing you designs. xx

    I think that, lately, the Burda issues have brought a few nice Plus Size patterns. You can also find brilliant patterns up to size 52 (bust 122cm) in Ottobre magazine.

    Most of the time, I don’t really care about the sizes as I upgrade the patterns up to my size. The key to this is know what kind of piece of clothing would look good on you. Then, a careful upgrading will make it perfect. When I am not sure, I use a muslin. They allow me to correct a few little problems that might appear.

    I think that you have to be smart in color choices, and wrap yourself in a fabric before you decide the pro and con…

    Lately, Saks, Bloomingsdale, Macy’s and Asos have started a plus size collection, with a few designers too… They are very good for inspiration. And in the end, I think that it is not because someone is a Plus Size that they cannot check “normal size” items…

    Also, A few girls have great blogs about plus size fashion (Le Blog de Big Beauty, etc…). There are also a few sewing blogs of curvy women (Diary of a Sewing Fanatic, etc…). I try to have fun with it on mine too…
