GreenStyle Creations Plus Size Laurel Dress

I had the great pleasure of testing the new plus sized Laurel Dress/Tunic pattern by GreenStyle Creations.  Angelyn was a pleasure to work with in perfecting the pattern for us plus sized ladies and together a great fit was created.  This pattern has some great features including 4 sleeve lengths, 4 skirt lengths and 3 bodice lengths.  You can completely customize a shirt or dress to fit you, the pattern includes size 0X to 3X. Fabric with at least 25% stretch is needed to ensure a proper fit.

The first test shirt I did in a bigger size, I am always afraid of having things turn out too small, I am sure most plus sized women understand that. I really liked how it turned out and it was the perfect length to wear over legging with boots.  One of the initial fit issues was the bodice length and that was solved in our testing.  This version is the regular bodice which was a bit long on me, but the final pattern adjusted the bodice levels.  The length is tunic length and elbow length sleeves. Don't mind the little glowing eyed photo bombing doggie Ziva ;)

The next Laurel I made I decided to try a size down.  Which always makes me feel great!  Since its winter and I don't wear dresses much I chose the shirt length with regular bodice length and short sleeves.  Oh My Goodness!  I am in love with this pattern.  My husband liked and complemented me on the fit and style.  And the craziest complement yet??? My tween daughter loved the fit on me. Mothers of tweens and teens can totally relate to this!  Score!

So hop on over to GreenStyle Creations and for a limited time using the code 20discount you can get 20% off the pattern. Check out their other great patterns while you are there! More neckline add ons to the pattern are in the works as well!
