Check out the most excellent plus size (and smaller sized) active wear from Cult of California! Their size chart says they go from size 8-30.
Fluoro stuff for bike safety! Or just if you love fluoro!
One of the Leona Edmiston dresses I got tonight. I’m a 22-24 on top and a 26 on bottom and the size L fits me pretty well.
I also got a 40s-inspired LE dress in purple and also the same one in black. They’re the first things I’ve tried on in a long time that I actually loved enough to buy. This was at a Myer store and I also got a Basque light sweater top which is also 40s-inspired, and has lace detail and a big v-neck back so my tattoo can get an airing now!
Includes plus sizes. Online and in Canberra. I’m going to go there next weekend I think!
Attn potential sewing fats! Here’s the thing with sewing patterns: the measurements on the size chart don’t match the size of the finished garment, not by a long shot. Most of the regular patterns go up to a 20-22, but most of them (except Vogue) are drafted with a ridiculous amount of ease. For instance this dress says its biggest size is for a bust measurement of 44”/112cm, but the finished garment will actually have a bust measurement of 50”/127cm. Obviously it depends on the fabric or style but you probably don’t want your clothes that baggy; the model on the pattern packet is definitely not wearing a dress with 6” of ease around the bust. The pattern size charts say I should be buying something like a size 34, but I’ve only ever bought sz 22-24 patterns and sometimes added a couple of cm where needed. (I’m short and don’t have a large cup size though, so others may need further adjustment.)
