I was hoping that everyone here could give me guidance or suggestions. I am scheduled for breast cancer surgery. They will be removing the one breast. Until the surgery site is healed I have been trying to come up with a blouse pattern or style that will camouflage the empty area.

The Doc. tells me that the prognosis is very good and that I may not need chem or radiation.

sharonms,

I sent you a PM. You'll see the Message Center just under the line that says, Welcome back sharonms. I believe you need to be a paid member to send a PM, but that you can reply to one sent to you even if you are not a paid member.

Hi Sharoms,

What about an asymmetrical design with gatherings?

Sharonms, I had a lumpectomy and radiation over 4 years ago. A few weeks before the surgery, I was doing exactly what you are...looking for blouse patterns. Not knowing what to expect, I wanted something loose and baggy. You may, or may not have a drain for the first few days, so account for that. I found a few that might work for you, while waiting for your site to heal, and beyond. McCall 6244, I like the vest layering. McCall 6467 caught my eye right off. I'm a bit too old for all the ruffles, but it would be the perfect distraction and act as a "filler". Also Butterick 5611 and 5562(View D).

Please keep us posted on your progress. Are you going to have reconstruction? My sister-in-law found that using shoulder pads in her bra is the perfect padding. We learn how to adapt to all sorts of new things. Best of luck to you...

There was a thread on this subject last year. I particularly remembered the garments from Chikara as stylish and flattering. I hope you may find inspiration here, and best wishes for successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

Kim
