Sunday plus-size pattern roundup #4

I’m on a dress kick this week for this roundup of inclusive sewing patterns, so I’ve included a bonus pattern at the bottom which is something I’ve been thinking about a lot as the weather gets warmer here in Christchurch! I’m trying to keep on top of all the pattern makers who are extending their sizing, because sometimes it takes ages for me to discover that a pattern company is making things in my size now! Case in point, is dress number 1:

Number 1, Belemnite Dress

The Belemnite Dress from Marilla Walker

This first release of the new extended size range from Marilla Walker at a 58″ bust and 60″ hip

Number 2, Hippolyta Dress

The Hippolyta Dress from Sew Me Something

This pattern squeezes in to the listing with 49″ bust and 52″ hip as the largest size. Check out GariChild’s version for a better idea of the lines

Number 3, Rachel Dress

Rachel front-tie dress from Jalie

Available up to a 51″ bust and 54″ hip this pattern possibly predates a wrap dress which I love, from a NZ designer, but which isn’t in my size!

Number 4, Iris Dress

The Iris dress from StyleArc

Bonus Pattern: Kaye Shorts

Kaye bra and shorts from Seamwork

What a better accompaniment to a roundup of dresses then a pair of shorts that will stop your thighs from touching (and rubbing)!

There’s a review of the pattern over on the CSC and make sure you read Green Violet’s review before you cut in to your fabric!

Sunday plus-size pattern roundup #3

In this 3rd weekly pattern roundup, I’ve included 2 patterns which were recently updated to increase the sizing, a new pattern from a company I didn’t realise was making patterns in my size, and a free jumpsuit pattern!

Just a reminder that in order to be included, the patterns will need to have either bust or hip measurements of over 50″, but preferably they’ll have both. Also, they’re all going to be patterns I’ve already made, intend to make, or would make.

Number 1, LB Pullover

The LB Pullover from Paper Theory

Available now up to a 56″ bust and 57″ hip with turtle neck and crew neck options!

Number 2, A-Frame Skirt

The Blueprints for Sewing A-Frame Skirt

Available now up to 61″ Hip

Number 3, The Ilford Jacket

The Ilford Jacket from Friday Pattern Company

Available up to a 54″ bust and 57″ hip, this unisex design has different views available, and can be worn as a jacket or shirt (depending on your chosen material)!

Number 4, Jumpsuit

Free Jumpsuit Patterns from the Rational Dress Society

JUMPSUIT is an ungendered, multi-use monogarment, available as an open-source pattern. The RDS has developed a sizing system that can accommodate up to 248 different body types using gender-neutral terminology.
