    full size fashions! clothes that flatter and fit women with busty busts and wide hips. it’s more about creating a good design than just adding bigger sizes— many of the great styles i see have embellishments like ruffles and darts which do not look as good on areas of the body you want to minimize.

    I’d love more beginner clothing projects, would love more projects re-purposing stuff (like the pillowcase dress), and I am an aerialist and would love to see some costume sewing projects for stretchy spandex-y dance fabric…that may be getting too specific, but you asked…

    maybe something about draping? i do not have tv, but when i stay at a hotel or go home to my parents house, i seek out project runway, and am always fascinated by the technique of draping (and pattern making, too).

    I think what is missing in the world is a really good bag pattern to be made out of leather. A nice big slouchy one that is not twee and without an unnecessary amount of hardware.
