I just absolutely love how easy and enjoyable this pattern was. It just is nice to have a company that understands larger sized women still want to look pretty.

Love the fit as usual through the bust.
If you make a muslin be sure to sew on the buttons and buttonholes or at least pin the front closed accurately to get a good idea of the fit! I did have to alter the torso length at the front a bit for my shape. I made the size 20 G-cup in a rayon print.

Lenox Shirtdress

I am full of excitement for this dress! I’ve made it up in linen, and it is one impressive pattern indeed. The neckline shaping is sleek, cup sizing is perfect, the waist is where it should be and it also has lots of room around the hips. I wore it out for a full day and it was very comfortable. I highly recommend it!

Love the Lenox Shirtdress and Sleeve Expansion!

I don’t wear dresses. I just rarely ever do. But my attention was drawn by the Lenox, and it was by some sheer magic that it fit me so well. I did make changes based on my mock-up, shortening the length from shoulder to bust and making the sleeve a size smaller to account for the smaller armscye. I love how the whole dress fits, how the sleeve billows just a bit but doesn’t feel overwhelming, how the bust is fitted (to me! How did that happen?) but the back does not feel skin-tight. I’d highly recommend, even for someone, like me, who doesn’t wear dresses.
