I decided to start this thread as marymary86 suggested. My suggestion is Jalie's Cardigan 2919.

I would like to see your suggestions of what you make to wear with that cute Jalie cardi! Slim pants/skirt, or what?

Pants or skirts would be the options. Slim pants are just pants in my size. I suppose it could be a dress as well.

My suggestion is the shapely shirt from Petite Plus. I love this blouse and have made it with and without sleeves.
My go to pattern for pants is Silhouette #3200. I have used it to fit a number of plus size women and it has not failed me yet.

The Hot Patterns Weekender Sunshine Top seems to flatter plus sizes - heck it flatters just about everyone!

I'm dying to make it!

Those are very nice patterns. Simple lines with gentle shaping. I haven't tried silhouette yet but am very tempted. Petite Plus is designed for full bust, D cup, rounded belly, narrow shoulders.

I'm not petite or narrow shouldered but I think it would be easier to alter those patterns to fit me than most.

I've heard many good things about hot patterns and I've watched all of her videos. I've got my eye on a few of her designs. The sunshine top is one of them. Fabric.com sometimes has 50% off sales on hot patterns. One day I will try them.

You can look up reviews from Marie-Claude, Debbie Cook and michellep74. They've sewn a number of HPs with great results. Basically, everyone who has made the Tie Me Down top has had an awesome result. Also, the Cote d'Azur top/dress has been very popular, and the Uptown/Downtown dress. The U/D dress has also been successful with basically everyone who has made it. Gemaki, Michelle L, and Reesie (among others) are 3 who've made some really lovely versions.
