trying to keep it alive!  
hey all! long time no see! i wish i knew how we could keep this community alive, because i think we could all be great resources for each other. so my contribution for the moment is to ask a question. has anyone here ever made the boobholder from glampyreknits for a bustier lady? this is such a cute little shrug, but i have not figured out an easy way of sizing up patterns yet. i am quite boobalicious (46DDD ish), so i definitely need some more room there. anyone who's made it (or is aces at sizing up) have any tips or notes about how they sized up, or barring that any cute pattern recommendations for a similar shrug?

thanks peeps!

I actually talked to Stephanie about sizing it up, and here is the link to the post I made here:

check what indigodye linked to, and if that doens't work for you -- especially if you have a large bust and proportionally small band -- short-row bust shaping may be the way to go. There are good directions for that in Big Girl Knits.
