Okay I'm woman enough to say I'm wrong when I'm wrong and baby was I wrong! I mean big-time WRONG!
These are all new plus size patterns from Butterick's 2011 spring line:
Suzy Chin for Maggy Boutique (Butterick 5598)
this dress goes up to a size 24
This Connie Crawford Dress & Vest
(Butterick 5620) in all sizes up to 6X!
and look at the back views...you could use just this pattern and make an entire wardrobe!
This top pattern (Butterick 5610) goes up to a size 26 - OMG, these are sooooo cute! Love the details at the waist/hipline area and at the neckline.
This dress (Butterick 5593) only goes up to a size 22 - but it's semi-fitted with a lot of width in the bottom of the dress - where I need it most and it will look great made up in some of those trendy knits that are in my fabric closet!
I like the idea of this dress (Butterick 5600) and even though it only goes up to a size 22 and it has the elastic waist tie, I'm intrigued by it so I threw this one in the shopping cart too!
Now there are a couple of tops that are in the plus size range also. They just aren't me so they aren't in my shopping cart waiting for the next sale but they are interesting. What I'm basically saying to all my plus size sistahs is that I'm eating my words. Butterick came through this time in a big way! So let's not let this opportunity pass us by...make sure you purchase your favorite Butterick patterns and sew them up. I know I will be making these cute outfits this spring/summer, for sure!
And finally, Butterick ~ I apologize! You did good and I will be there with my pattern dollars to let you know how well you did!
