In order to avoid over-saturation I’m going to release a list of 10 twice a week until I run out. I hope there will be plenty to inspire you!

3. Morning Glory Top from Sarah Kirsten

Both v-neck and scooped neckline and says that a bust adjustment is included in the pattern!

Size: Up to a size 30 or 59.75″ hip

6. Chloe Skirt & Maxi from Made for Mermaids

‘This is the perfect project for someone who is new to sewing or has been afraid to try a knit pattern. Extremely QUICK a-line skirt with only 4 seams and a hem.’

7. Maple Culottes from Mood

If you’re unsure whether culottes are for you, maybe a free pattern will tip you over the edge?

8. Avast Circle Vest from Patterns for Pirates

Aaaa-ren’t you glad you’re reading this list? ‘The perfect little throw on vest that is super simple and quick to make.’

Size: up to a 58″ hip but presumable pretty open sizing.

9. Maya Bra from AFI Atelier

Check out this review on CSC of the Maya Bra by Andie of Sew Pretty in Pink. That’s her lovely version pictured!

Size: So Many Sizes.

10. Peplum top from Peppermint Magazine

I love my version of this top, and it’s a shape too easily dismissed when searching for curvy sewing patterns.

Size: Up to a 54″ hip but so much positive ease means the actual sizing will be much larger.

Come back at the same time next week for 10 more free printable plus size sewing patterns. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions please add them to the comments!

Scribble Peplum top

Peppermint Peplum Rayon 2

This Peplum top is a free plus size sewing patterns for beginners from in Peppermint Magazine in Australia and is drafted by the lovely Emily from In The Folds.

I had enough fabric leftover from my Scribble Rayon Adeline to make the peplum with an extra long frill, which makes it long enough to style with pants that aren’t super high-waisted.

Have you read this article on the difference between a frill & a flounce? Neither had I until I was looking for how to describe the bottom part of the peplum!

Pepermint Peplum Rayon

I have another 3 of these tops in the ‘almost finished’ sewing pile, which I’m excited to be able to wear next summer!


Size Details: Although my measurements put me between a J-K on the Peppermint scale, I actually sewed a size H and am wearing it on a 47″bust and 54″ hip.
