    What size top/dress do you wear?

    I’m thinking of making a wearable item for my secret santee but I need to know what size she wears... anyone else thinking of making wearables? Willing to share your size?

    I’ll start, I wear a 16/18 or 2x typically.

        In tops I wear a medium 10/12. And I hate 3/4 length sleeves!

          I haven't made clothing in ages! lol, back in the dark ages of high school. You know, Stonehenge High!

          I wear between a medium and large (I bought 2 shirts, same company and style shirts, just different fabrics- one was a large, one a medium to get the same fit! I don't get it! I guess it's like precuts and the pinked edges). I love 3/4 sleeves.

            I have found that the size of premade tops I wear range from 16/18 to xl depending on the particular item. Items made from patterns also have a range and with a D cup bra I am hard to fit in many patterns. I also like wearing things that fit on the loose side and do not appear to have been sprayed on.
            For wearables, I prefer hair claws and scarves.

              That's hard to say. I'm heavily endowed. When I measured myself for a sewing pattern chest was 42 and I'm a D cup. With store bought clothing I like my shirts big so I'll usually get a 16 although some are 14. I just finished a casual summer dress for sitting on the porch this summer. It was a disaster. Bust was ok but everything else was HUGE. Not flattering at all! So I did quite a few alterations mainly adding 4 boat seams from under the arm to about 3 inches of the hem. That helped a lot....and afterall who's going to see me sitting on my back porch. The dog??? And she'd love me even if I was naked LOL

                Size is a tough one. Depending on the manufacturer and the cut of the garment, I wear anything from a size 16 to 22 (but most often in the 18/20 range).

                If your idea is a "one size fits most" or adjustable (i.e. drawstring pajama pants), then I think it would be a wonderful gift idea.

                  I wear mostly 1x. XL will fit but I like my tops loose. I don't have a bust size (no boobs) but if you wanted to make me some Knitted Knockers (google to get the pattern) that would be great. LOL!! Do what makes you happy.

                  I am just happy to get something "quilty" for Christmas, otherwise I would get nothing (quilt related that is).
                  Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                              About this Group

                              Membership is now closed for 2019.

                              We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non-stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

                              This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 3 items during the year.
