I'm a 40L, 32" and most RTW looks ridiculous on me, but I tried on a John Varvatos one...
Sweet, thanks Freddy. I made the pattern myself with the help of a friend who did some draping on me. The fabric is something cheap ($9/yard). It seems kinda low thread count, but it's 100% cotton.
Is the lining the interfacing? I just used plain bleached muslin from Joann's. Is there...

My friend's sister named their baby boy Anakin. Was the paper from South Bend, IN? Anyway, it's disgusting.
Oh, and yes, the middle name...
Doctors have heard lots of stories MUCH more embarrassing than jock itch. No big deal. Hell I've had it several times! The Lamisil topical stuff (not the spray) always works for me.
As far as the toes, I'm pretty sure the pill is the only thing that works for that.
