Greetings – newbie here!
My son is getting married this fall and I’m a ‘substantial’ woman who looks like a battle tank covered in sparklers whenever I try on off the rack mother-of-the-groom dresses, so I’ve come up with a design that will disguise some of my flaws, and keep me out of the often frumpy designs made for larger ladies. Trouble is, its the skirt from that pattern, and the sleeves from another, bodice from another, and a collar (portrait style) that I can’t find in any pattern whatsoever. Still, I’m determined. Any advice before I jump in and just do-it-scared? Thanks!
