One of the tricks for pressing linen (it’s the same for silk) is to put in a plastic bag in the freezer for a half hour or so before pressing. It gives a good sharp result particularly if you have …

Yes I see where you are coming from – that being said much like you I am not a fan of this style.

The problem with this as you observe is that without shoulders and a bust this style will fall off you. And the issue with a bust is that this look is not flattering as it makes your bust look bigg…

I really like the shape of the little black dress – I am not a fan of the others because they are not my style with the exception of the jumpsuit which would work well in another fabric.

Very pretty I love a good print.

I think this dress is a good standard model for any wardrobe and I for one am off out to the shops to get fabric inspiration. I have just shifted so will have to set up my sewing space again as qui…

Oh dear the dramatic draping sleeve is a thing of ugly wonder – not my favourite by any means. As to the rest yeah-nah I pass. The model however is very beautiful.

See I don’t mind a ruffle because I think it is less about age and more about body shape and where the ruffles are placed. I like some of these but more importantly I think the styling is much impr…

I like the striped dresses, the rest I am not sure about. The lovely model looks like she might be tall but everything other than the striped dresses does nothing for her figure. On this basis the …

I like the blue dress, the others don’t appeal to me; that aside the pink satin blush looks like it needs a good press, and I am not sure about all that shiny. Just saying.

I like this; while the pieces are conservative they could be made to work with good fabric choices and styling. I am not a fan of yellow but I am fan of a pared down look and this has good bones.

I like the last dress – I don’t love the grey but I do think the style would work well for a variety of body types.

The wrap dress looks good and I like the colours used in this post but as for the rest of it I don’t really like the shapes and I think that an elastic waistband is never flattering no matter your …

Oh dear not again with the Mumu, really do you think a plus size woman wants to wear any of these designs? I have seen Burda do so much better than this in the past. Even the fabric choices can’t s…

Really so the model for this post is wearing a badly fitted shirt which doesn’t flatter her. Ironic.

Ok so culottes are really tricky to wear and not that flattering unless you are thin and very tall. They are like 3/4 length capri pants in that respect. Anything less than a figure like this and y…
