Now I lurve a pattern that has a "Lifestyle Wardrobe" attached. One purchase - many coordinating looks.
Here is what Buttericks have brought out for us plus sized ladies - behold the plus sized Lifestyle Wardrobe .... drum roll please
Apologies for the last 2 blurry pics - apparently Buttericks don't even want to give us good pictures - that is the best I can do.
I can't apologise for the appalling shapeless sack-like clothes - that is all on Buttericks. Is it just me? Or does that look like it would look good on..... well .... nothing.
These go up to my size but I would rather wear a bed sheet!
Here is what they have for their regular sizes in the Lifestyle Wardrobe.
Sassy and smart.
Why oh why can't they just make these in the larger sizes? This goes up to size 22 - much too small for me - but jeeze I can see myself in these. Yes I would make the dress, skirt and jacket a tad longer but I love this look.
I know I am trying to get fit right but when they start off giving you patterns with NO waist at all - well poo to them!
My curvy sisters - is it just me???? And what can we do about it? Can we start an online petition - anyone know how to do that - and would it matter.
Sorry - my nose is severely out of joint! And what infuriates me even more is that - in my opinion - very few people will actually purchase the atrocious plus sized wardrobe so Buttericks will no doubt not blame their pattern but believe that there is not much of a market for up to size 32.
I am sorry if you actually like the plus sized wardrobe - and PLEASE let me know if you do - that will teach me not to assume - I am really interested in your thoughts.
On the positive side - the lovely JuliN has awarded me a versatile blogger award which I am thrilled to receive (can't help it - I am a sucker for an award) and I will post more when my blood stops boiling about this.
