It’s been a long time between posts in my Sunday Plus Size Sewing pattern series, which was a weekly occurrence earlier in the year, but which fell by the wayside!
What do I share?
In every post I share 4 patterns- some are old, some are new.
Generally, I’ll only include patterns that I like! It’s biased, but I’m not interested in rounding up fit and flare dresses for the masses.
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.
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!
Number 1, Ninja Top & Dress
Stokx Patterns are a relatively new, and even newer-to-me pattern company based in Berlin. The Ninja Top & Dress is available up to a 59″ bust and 60″ hip.
Not all of their patterns are available in this extended range, but the newer ones seem to be. Stokx Patterns come from Stokx’ RTW clothing shop in Berlin, so I presume they’ve been extensively fit-tested by real people!
Number 2, Grainger Coat
I’m on a cool-weather vibe with this roundup, so it seemed like a great time to include the latest pattern from Leila and me- the Grainger Coat, a quilted coat with 2 lengths.
Available up to a 71.5″ hip, we will grade the pattern up to your size at no extra cost if our patterns are too small for you.
Number 3, Arlo Track Jacket
The latest pattern from Friday Pattern Co, the Arlo Track Jacket is available up to a 60″ bust and 63″ hip.
Sold a unisex pattern, this comes in a variety of lengths!
Number 4, Pekka Jacket
The Pekka Jacket from France based Ready to Sew is available up to a 54″ bust and 59.5″ hip
I like how this pattern could fill the gap left because some other haori style patterns aren’t as size-inclusive as this one. But, the large format files are laid out in a way that requires you to trace your pattern pieces off- this is a bit of a bummer for those of us who love digital precisely because it allows us to skip the tracing!
Keep an eye out next Sunday for the next edition of my Sunday Sewing Pattern Roundup!
