Next Sunday is going to be quite a busy week for new plus-size sewing patterns, so here are a few older patterns that may have fallen from your memory and one of the extended-size-range patterns from Merchant & Mills.
All of these patterns are available up to at least a 50″ hip (and they generally go higher).
Part of Merchant & Mills’ new plus-size range, there are available up to a size 28 (or 57.5” Hip). They’re drawstring trousers with a false fly and side pockets and are designed to sit on the waist.
I know lots of you are thinking blissfully of an approaching summer but I’ve had less than a handful of 30c+ (86F+) days and I’m already done and I’m planning ahead for my winter wardrobe! Since Christchurch is pretty mild, maybe my winter wardrobe and your spring wardrobe are the same thing!
Do you like to sew a season ahead (or at least be planning the sewing for your upcoming season)?
These are the new Sculthorpe Pants that Leila and I have released through Muna and Broad! We’ve been testing out a few different narrow leg pants options because we know that not everyone loves wide-leg pants!
Size details: I make a size 1 in the Muna and Broad sizing (which is meant for a 54″ hip) but I have between a 53-56″ depending on the time of day and how much sun is out, etc)
Fabric info:This viscose blend from The Fabric Store. It has a small amount of one-way stretch and a lovely nubbly texture (that I hope will hold up to lots of thigh rubbing). Fabric Usage: We suggest 2.5 metres for these pants, but I can generally use less by cutting on the open.
These pants have the same crotch curve as the Glebe Pants, so I get the same great fit. The pockets are just long enough to put your hand down in to, but doesn’t require me to bend over to reach in there.
I’ve made a few versions of these pants already, and I’ve got a couple more planned (including a black canvas pair that I’ll be making as part of my next Minerva Makers project)!
This week the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern has a little ‘weekend theme’ with patterns that might be great for a summer weekend! I was thinking about a trip to the beach with a me-made swimsuit & maxi-dress, maybe gardening in some overalls, and drinking a tasty beverage (and eating little cubes of cheese) in a jumpsuit!
All of these patterns are available at least to a 50″ bust or hip (but preferably both) and these roundups selfish contain only patterns that I would like to make myself!
