Hello Mrs. M! Thanks so much for commenting! I would be glad to help! :)

Here is the link to the plus size article on FF. There was only one link on where to buy clothes, most was advice on how to look your best and the styles to wear, etc. And it wasn't for plus size I don't think from the looks of it.

I actually sew most of my things, it's just easier for me (and I am not that good of a seamstress, pretty much just intermediate. I can't do fittings or anything). Anyway, they do make plus size dress/skirt patterns that we use for our mom that you can find at Simplicity.com, McCall's.com, and other sewing places. Some of the patterns I listed here are also available in plus size. http://feelinfeminine.com/?p=1953

I was browsing around for you, and there are some nice skirts to buy here - http://www.jms.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce/CategoryDisplay?cgnbr=20H0000000

and some dresses here that you may or may not like - http://www.avenue.com/Plus-Size-Clothing.aspx?DeptId=10274

The last link has some rather pricey items. :(

I just found this site, I don't know what size you are, but the one skirt I looked at went to size 22. http://www.modestapparelusa.com/ These are rather pricey as well, but they are lovely and very modest and I think they are Christian! :) So you can check it out if you'd like.

I hope that helps you some, sorry I couldn't be more helpful, maybe for next month we could put together some links for plus size women. :) I'll have to talk to Jocelyn about it. Let me know how that works for you and if you would like more help! :) I know it's hard when your just starting out, but keep at it! It took awhile for me to build up a nice wardrobe of dresses and skirts too. :)

Blessings in Christ!

Hello! I have a question. I tried to make your potato bread recipe but it didn't turn out. To much liquid, I think.

In the ingredients you mention 11-12 cups of flour, but in the recipe you said to add 6 cups of flour.

So I only added 6 and it didn't turn out. So did I do something wrong? I think I didn't add enough flour or something.

I have to admit that I have never made bread before and so didn't really think about where the other 6 cups went!

I'm hoping you can help answer my question as I'd like to try it again tomorrow! Thank you!

Thank you so much for the wonderful information.

I sent you an email. It sounds like you added the first 6 cups but didn't add the remaining flour after it rose. But I could be wrong. I hope that helps.
