Mr. Storey's idea of "big" or "generous" is a 46" bust. There are two shrugs which go up to 50". The Seashore Tunic is the sort of shapeless thing plus size women see see all too much of. I was surprised to see accessories included; why waste space in a plus size book with one-size-fits-all shawls? We can find those anywhere. Rowan has rarely been accommodating to large women. This book demonstrates their lack of expertise in this - or their lack of caring.
