I loved the Shakira pattern but knew that it would be too big. So I narrowed the pattern pieces down by an inch or two on each side, and I got to work.

Material Notes

teal cotton velveteen with a bit of stretch, with clear cut glass buttons from a flea market

    It’s lovely! Such a great color! And I’m quite impressed by your nonchalant “oh, I just changed the patter a bit” attitude! I think, too that Kellimaier is a bit confused as to what she is looking at (you aren’t burdastyle), and I disagree with her as to it not fitting. It looks great! Good job!

    It doesn’t fit the model…please get some real plus sized models. I know this is a free pattern but the point of free patterns is to entice buyers to purchase one. I can not make a judgment on your patterns at all if they are modeled by someone on which it doesn’t fit.
