BurdaStyle Magazine - 02-2014-135 Pouch Shirt
Who knew a "pouch" would be perfect for a "pooch?" The asymmetry lengthens, the molded hemline creates curves, the drape masks a pooch, and the raglan sleeve narrows my wide shoulders. It's a miracle garment which blurs the things I'm self conscious about without putting me in a shapeless sack. ... more...

McCall's - 6754 Knit Rockabilly Dress

McCall's - 6801 L'Wren Scott Knock-Off
If you like Vogue 1314, this is another Tracey Reese runched bodycon dress with similar construction. Inspired by this L'Wren Scott sweetheart neckline dress which I *would* have bought if the sleeves weren't so darn tight. Pattern Sizing: If you've made Vogue 1314, go with the same sizing.
