Subject: I would go shorter with a bit of a longer skirt. Play with the proportion of bodice to skirt to see what balances best. When my daughter was young, she was like this, so I use darker colors on the sides of the torso, a long central design down the middle, and no belt. Good luck.

In reply to: Sndm 's message, "Hi ladies. I am making a solo for a very large 10 year old. chest chest 39, waist 37.5, dropped waist 40. They came for a fitting last week and it does nothing for her as she is just so big. Obviously you want your dresses to look their best, with a youngster of these proportions, would you go slightly longer or shooter than usual." on Thursday, October 17, 03:24:04pm

elongate the bodice---not the skirt. Dark sides to the bodice, nice 'V' at the front dw. (NT)bgFriday, October 18, 07:20:56am

    Longer bodices on large/wide dancers just make them look like sausage tubes with a frill at the bottom...been there, done that. Making the bodice and skirt more proportional (shorter bodice, though not like in the old days) really does work better. (NT)**Friday, October 18, 09:17:31am
