    “curves in at the waist to make it billowy” at the stomach area! Truly unbecoming to make the least wanted part of the body accentuated (the paunch of the stomach area). ! I find this in a lot of ‘“Plus Size” garments, instead of attractive, they are actually off putting. Why? We need to create patterns ourselves that accentuate the positive & make less visible the parts we don’t want shown. Another issue I notice is in pants: the legs are TOO short and the crotch and waist are too long, as if patterned to fit a a potato with two toothpicks for legs. I wonder what body shape they are patterning after, perhaps the Chinese? Are they who are making our patterns today..?

    I made this initially as a sample to see if I needed to tweak the pattern to suit my body size and shape. This pattern is a little odd… It curves in at the waist to make it billowy in my middle, which is definitely not the shape I’m going for. I’ve re-drafted the pattern to make it longer (more like a tunic), and lengthened the top at the shoulders. My idea is to belt it at the waist to create some shape. I am a size 22 (US sizes) and 6’ 0" tall. Hope my notes help future sewists!
