Thanks! If someone who has access to an XL body (get your mind out of the gutter :noway:) can give me some measurements, I’d appreciate it.
I tried measuring by my own size and it seems as if I’M a 16, but I KNOW that’s not right, as evidenced by the fact that I can still fit into my size 10s!!! :roll:
I’m large up top, about a 38 1/2 (I’m on a diet!), and the pattern says 38 bust is size 16! Waist and hips measurements about the same as the size 16 too - somewhere between a 14 & 16 acc. to the pattern.
Sooooooooo…any brave souls out there want to share their measurements??? Maybe we can rename this the diet thread and use our current measurements to
My measurements…keep in mind this is fully clothed in the very BULKY fabric one tends to wear in the hottest part of summer in 100 degree heat and 85% humidity!!!
Bust: 39!!! Yikes!
Waist: 33 1/2
Hips: 43 1/2
[my sister-in-law consoles me by telling me a 10" diff. between hips and waist is a great look, a Marylin Monroe type of body…OK, I’ll buy that…now pass me the chocolates so I can look a little more Monroe-ish! :teehee:
