Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #28

This week the pattern roundup includes 3 recent releases, 2 which are free! I’m not sure if next week I should concentrate on a roundup of giftable patterns? I do have a collection of free giftable non-garment sewing patterns here.

Number 1, Free Bardon Dress

The Bardon Dress is a free sewing pattern by Elbe Textiles made available by the Peppermint Sewing School. The free dress is available up to a 53″ bust and a 56.3″ hip

Number 2, Apron

This Apron is available for Muna and Broad Patreon Insiders and Makers.

The Apron is available in Large Adult, Small Adult and Child sizes and makes a perfect gift!

Number 3, Page Hoodie

The Page Hoodie from Chalk and Notch has had its sizing extended. It’s now available in two cup size options and up to a 58″ bust and 59″ hip

Chalk and Notch has recently extended the sizes of a number of their patterns up to 59″ hip.

Number 4, Free Pyjamas

This free pyjama pattern from The Assembly Line is available up to a 54.7″ hip

The Assembly Line has recently started releasing their patterns in a larger size range, though there’s not currently a way to sort their patterns to see what patterns are available in extended sizes.

You can check out all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #25

Welcome to the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern roundup! Every week, I share 4 plus-size sewing patterns that are available up to at least a 50″ bust and hip. I try to keep up-to-date with new patterns, but also with lesser-known companies.

You can check out all of the posts that are part of this series here.

Number 1, Kapunda Undies

The Kapunda Undies from Leila and me at Muna and Broad is available up to a 71.5″ hip, but if that’s too small for you then we will grade this pattern up for you at no extra cost.

Number 2, Te Aro Dress and Top

The Te Aro Dress and Top from Scroop Patterns is available up to a 56″ bust and 60″ hip and comes with 3 different ‘size packs’, the largest being Size 44-56.

Designed for midweight knits, View A is a long sleeve dress with an optional hood, View B is a short-sleeve top with a high-low hem and View C is a dress with high low hem and dramatic sleeves.

Number 3, Krissa Crop

The Krissa Crop from Amy Nicole Studio is a free pattern which is available up to a 56.5” bust

Number 4, Staley Top

The Staley Top from Elbe Textiles is available up to a 56.3″ hip. This pattern for knit fabrics come with two views: View A is a cropped jumper with a split hem detail and View B is a semi fitted t-shirt with a scooped neckline and a curved hem.

I try to only share pattern makers who release all their patterns in their entire size range- I don’t want to support companies who are further marginalising fat bodies, or treating us like an afterthought! I’d love to hear your suggestions!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #23

The theme of the Sunday Pattern Roundup this week is gathers and pleats! All of these patterns are available up to at least a 50″ bust or hip! Usually I only share 4 patterns in each roundup, but I included a few bonuses this week so that there were plenty of options!
