Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #7

The roundup for this Sunday featured a selection of patterns that aren’t new, you’re not likely to have missed their arrival but maybe they’ve fallen off your radar in the meantime? I often find myself purchasing (and sometimes even immediately printing) patterns which take my fancy, and then they sit, waiting for inspiration to strike. Often, all it takes is a little nudge, or the perfect fabric to cross my path and we’re off again. Hopefully, something here will give you the nudge you need!

Number 1, The Miller Trousers

Miller Trousers from Paper Theory

Number 2, The Blackwood Cardigan

Blackwood Cardigan from Helen’s Closet

This classic keeps on giving! Every time I see it I think ‘I really need to make some of these’, not just for winter but also because summer can be cold here!

Number 3, The Sienna Maker Jacket

Sienna Maker Jacket from Closet Case Patterns

Who printed this off as soon as it arrived in her inbox and then has swiftly procrastinated for months and months? It’s me! I love this sample picture and feel like I’d use this pattern a lot if I bothered to sew it up for myself!

Number 4, The Reed Skirt

Reed Skirt from Grainline Studios

Like the Sienna jacket above, this Reed skirt was part of the first patterns released by big indie sewing businesses Grainline & Closet Case. Almost a year on from the online-plus-size-sewing drama, it’s great to see that we’ve got some movement towards size inclusion in indie-sewing!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #6

Number 1, The Roscoe Blouse

Hello readers and hello 2020! Here’s the first pattern roundup for the New Year! I love the colour scheme that this weeks post captures, and hope that you’ll find some patterns of interest!

Roscoe Blouse & Dress from True Bias

Released late in 2019 in extended sizes, the Roscoe Blouse is another example of True Bias going through the archives to update for more inclusive sizing. I think this top (and the dress view) would make great work wear.

Number 2, The Acton Dress

The Acton Dress from In The Folds

This dress has been on my ‘must-make list’ since I found it online. I love the wrap skirt (which is a good option for those who aren’t included in the sizing for the Keilo wrap dress). Knowing that I’d have to do a FBA has slowed me down, but I still adore it and think ‘I must make that soon’ whenever I see it!

Number 3, The Tobin Sweater

Tobin Sweater from Cashmerette

Cashmerette is such an amazing resource for incredibly consistent plus-size sewing patterns. Their ‘choose-your-bust-size’ pattern options are incredibly helpful, and patterns like The Tobin seem almost timeless- a great investment pattern for your stash!

Number 4, The Lawley Skirt

The Lawley Skirt Pattern from Elbe Textiles

Lauren from Elbe textiles has such gorgeous taste, and has an ever growing collection of patterns with a large size range. This skirt is free, but her other patterns are well worth a look too!
