While on a recent trip, I came across a shop called "Zay_zay", with such cute styles that I had to take a look. Turns out the shop catered to larger women, (maybe starting around a 14, perfect). I ended up buying several things, including a sleeveless tunic similar to this gilet, and made by the same company (Zhenzi, Danish). Also bought a few things from a french company, can't think of name off hand. Anyway, I think this look with leggings and a slim shirt is very cute at about any age. Any ideas for patterns?

And, I also like this "Navabi" site, interesting styles to browse for ideas....

Pricey, but good inspiration for sewing--the top with fringe for adding selvedge? strips to a T, use up scraps for the pieced Steilmann top.

Fabulous site Katy. Thanks for directing us to it. I love how the finished garment sizes are listed for everything and their zooms & multiple views make it easy to see those details. Lots of inspiration here!
