What is the opposite of Scant?
I'm trying to write the instructions for this bag pattern, and I really need to use Scant......and whatever its opposite is.
Can anyone help???

Generous?

Lindsey said...

I agree with Melody:

"Use a generous 1/4 inch seam allowance."

girlsmama said...

If you're cooking it would be heaping. But a heaping seam allowance just doesn't seem right.

Kira Rae said...

generous, that is exactly what I was thinking.

Kathi D said...

Generous is what immediately came to my mind.

Tracy said...

My first thought was fat ...but then if you were saying use a fat 1/4 you'd confuse us all :D:D Generous sounds good

I agree with generous.

Carla said...

Love generous and scant.

Molly said...

Hmm I was going to say generous too!

Kristin said...

The opposite of scant is heaping!

Kim said...

I agree with generous. It's a perfect description.

Hey It's Di said...

What they all said.

I also thought generous, but wondered about the context. I'd love to know how you're going to use it.

Lynsey Lou said...

I had no clue what you were even talking about. So D all of the above.

Claudia said...

English is my second language so I'll go with the dictionary definition: scant = meager ? The opposity would be plenty, maybe?

ucmama said...

plentiful?

Let's see...I have a "heaping" rear-end? How about an "ample" posterior end? "Fat" always works, but doesn't sound as pleasant as "generous" rear-end. Finally, I like "plentiful" for describing a generous bosom.
