    themisstress commented on the article Camping Chic: 11 New Patterns

    Why, why, why can’t we have some of these patterns in plus size??? With the exception of the (frankly ridiculous) bikini and possibly the slightly odd red and purple dress, all these patterns woul…

    themisstress commented on the article Color Desire: 9 New Plus Size Patterns

    OK, these have just gone down in my estimation. Why can’t “plus” mean plus? Why don’t these ( or almost any other of your patterns) come in the biggest sizes – and please don’t insult us with " wh…

    themisstress commented on the article Color Desire: 9 New Plus Size Patterns

    Over all I like this collection (for once!) But the lop sided patterns are a mistake! On the plus side, buy it, fold the front in half and cut on a fold – hey presto, two patterns for the price of …

    themisstress commented on the article Honeymooners: 10 New Sewing Patterns

    Almost all this collection would suit plus sizes – why can’t we have some if your lovely styling from your regular range in the BIG sizes?!? The plus size offerings are SO dowdy in comparison to yo…

    The best thing about this dress is that you clearly love it to bits! It make obviously you feel like a princess – what more can a girl want!

    themisstress commented on the forum topic Keeping a strapless dress up

    Hi, there are a few things you can try. The fit does need to be snug around the bust. If the dress is fitted to the waist, boning it will work best. Try to avoid boning over the centre of each brea…

    themisstress commented on the project Burnt Orange Sleeveless Tank Dress

    I am obviousley alone in thinking this dress is bulky, unflattering, a weird colour combo, and not actually that well made! Sorry, but I’ve seen this beautiful girl look soooo much better. Disapoi…

    Hi! You say it’s not perfect, but aside from the hem which looks a little wobbly in the pics, it looks great! The shape and colour are beautiful! Good job!

    themisstress commented on the project Kathrine Plus

    I have to agree with many of the coments above, while the modle is beautiful, she is not a fair representation of how this dress would look on a "real " plus size. And being one myself, i can confi…

    themisstress commented on the project Alessandra Pants

    Sorry Burda, but i have to agree with the other coments. This suit simply doesn’t fit. It also doesn’t look very well made (bulging seams, flappy pocket on the trousers etc). I think, also, that th…

    themisstress commented on the project the corset, finished

    Wow! for a fist time corseter, you did an amazing job! If you decide to make more, the best bonning ever is spiral steel. It’s about the same price as plastic, but is much stronger, and because of …

    themisstress commented on the project corset (boning)

    The diagonal boning at the front makes the world of difference to the support. I don’t know which type of boning you used, but if you haven’t tried it, steel spiral boning is the best by far! it’s …

    themisstress commented on the technique Turn Fabrics into Oilcloths!

    WOW! Fantastic idea. One of those times you think “why didn’t I think of that!” By the way, in England, it’s called Laminate. You can buy it in any stationer’s. Can’t wait to try it.

    themisstress commented on the project Margo

    Hard to tell from the pics, but I think the problem is that the crotch is too shallow top to bottom, but too deep front to back. Could be solved by cutting the crotch curve a little longer (don’t f…
