Seriously - there are few redeeming qualities to either of these patterns - judge for yourself!
See, I wasn't kidding! That bib collar thing on the one on the left is...blech! And it seems to me that the only person who could do the one on the right any justice at all is a very lanky stick-figure type, which I most assuredly am not.
I can't think of a single good reason for me to have bought these patterns, except that...well...I coveted them. I am covered in sin. And shame. And secret glee!
On the other hand, I also picked this up;
Again, it's the wrong size, but so very cute, outside of the horrible yellowness.
You know, I've never been one of those diety girls - I've gone beyond making peace with my curviness- I actually like it, and think I'm kinda hot. It probably helps that I can still see my feet, and I still have an actual waist, but still, my recent love of vintage patterns has me rethinking my priorities a bit. It seems that all the best vintage patterns only come in a small range of sizes, and those that come in a plus size are...well, they're often of the muu-muu variety. Since, as I mentioned, I think I'm fairly attractive, and I still have a waistline, I really prefer to wear clothing that doesn't look like a gunny sack with a hole for my head.
Would it be weird to drop a few dress sizes because I really want to be able to make and fit into this dress?
