Mrs. Roper attacks!

Hello All!

So striking my sewing list down one by one... up today Mcall's M6552.

Simple pattern but as you can see, I'm gonna have to do some adjusting (bustin' loose in the cleavage area).

In theory I loved this dress.  A few inches added and I actually had maxi a dress that reached my feet. :)  The fabric (while lovely) was not ideal for this pattern  The sleeves were super wonky so I just hacked them off.  Unfortunately with the accessories, it's a little Flinstone sexy sirenish...  I'm definitely going to remake it (if only for pride's sake) but using something a little do you say...less Mrs. Roper and more 70's show love child. :)


  1. I remember having a dress that I added a cami and it settled the peep-aboos :). I love the fabric and the length is on point.

    1. Thanks Mad14kt! I'm probably going to stick some black lace in there and call it a DAY! I won't lie though, I like the peek-a-boo look too (bad Mrs. Roper). :)

  2. Aloha! I saw your posting on and found my way to your blog. You are such an inspiration for full figure ladies. And your writings are so funny too!

  3. Hi Jozee! Thanks so much for reading my blog! I'm so glad you enjoy my little scribblings...just day to day issues in the world of the fat girl (all fun). Much more to come so stay tuned!

  4. I'm soooo loving this. Styling, fabric- yup. Love.It.
