You have an important job--you should dress for it. And if your

probably look at the better to wear shops. Many already have

thank you everyone for your thoughts...

talbots is having a sale. i'll be there saturday.

I bought a jacket, a pair of pants, and a skirt from Talbots earlier this year. My business clothes were all getting stupidly huge and I just did not have time to sew. Very pleased with the styles and so on. Classic stuff!
Good luck!

When you've got the time to try what may be a more complicated pattern, take a look at the Burda patterns. Their patterns included all kinds of measurement information like neck and bicep circumferences and other useful things which I find greatly reduce the amount of fussing I must to to get the pattern to fit well. Much less frustrating then having to guess how large the pattern company _thought_ your upper arm should be.
