I’ve had the extended sizes of the Kabuki Tee from Paper Theory printed out for ages now, and it’s been in the back of my mind that I ought to find some lovely linen for this for ages now. A couple of weeks ago I tried to find some examples of plus-size bodies in the… Continue reading Plus-size Kabuki Tee from Paper Theory
The Ashton top from Helen’s Closet has been out for a while now and I finally caved and purchased the pattern as a possible replacement for the Cashmerette Springfield Top, which fits great, but is a bit too fitted for my tastes (I want something boxier).
We’ve been working to extend the sizing and also add some long-sleeve options for the Torrens Box Top pattern that we’ve released under Muna and Broad! This is my second test of the narrow-sleeve extension, and I’m so pleased that I’ve now got the woven drop-shouldered long-sleeve top pattern that I’ve been looking for!
Grainline Studios has recently released their free Hemlock Tee pattern in their new extended size range! I’ve loved the style of the top, and now it’s available in my size! You can get the pattern for free by subscribing to the Grainline email newsletter (which you can do here).
I’ve been saving this gorgeous rayon from Drapers Fabric for the perfect project. I’m happy to say that I’m really pleased with the usage here, and I think I’ll have enough leftover for a summer shell top (maybe an Ashton from Helen’s Closet?)
Ever since I saw this glorious sweater/top from Alice Alexander Co (a company I’m just a touch obsessed with) I’ve been a little bit obsessed with the idea of a non-stretch woolen top/sweater. I’ve pinned a lot of inspiration to my ‘boiled wool sweater’ pinterest board and taken numerous inspirational screenshots.
I started this Cashmerette Harrison Shirt, my first shirt, with the intention of making a ‘wearable toile’ but have settled for a toile that included plenty of ‘firsts’ for me! Usually when making Cashmerette Patterns, I’m able to pick my cup size, select my bust measurement and then grade out a size or two where… Continue reading Toile of Harrison Shirt from Cashmerette
A free plus size sewing pattern for beginners? Look no further! The Morning Glory Top is a free top pattern from the lovely Sarah Kirsten (Check out my post on free plus size sewing patterns for beginners).
I wish I had a picture of the dress that this top used to be so that I could share a before and after. This Springfield Top pattern from Cashmerette is a recent purchase and has quickly become a Tried-and-True pattern in my wardrobe!
It’s quite hard finding good sewing patterns for larger ladies, and I’ve had so many fails with paid patterns that when I find free plus size sewing patterns, I definitely have to find out more. I’ve learnt so much from sewing the Peppermint Magazine‘s free sewing patterns, and I hacked a couple of short sleeves… Continue reading A hacked ruffle sleeve top
I’m always looking for free printable plus size sewing patterns! Peppermint Magazine’s free minimalist sewing patterns haven’t always been so size inclusive, but all but one of their patterns which were drafted by Emily from In The Folds go up to a 54.5″hip.
Another Springfield Top pattern from Cashmerette. I loved the fit of the first few Springfield tops that I sewed up, and I had just enough of this floral fabric left after making a Cashmerette Montrose top to almost make a Springfield Top too!
I had sewn a few earlier versions of this Lou Box Top from SewDIY but have given them away to friends or chopped them up to make smaller versions for other friends. I don’t actually fit into SewDIY’s size chart, but if I rely on some generous positive ease, then there’s enough room for me… Continue reading Cropped Lou Box Top
These Ethel Designer Top from StyleArc (which I purchased as a set) isn’t something that I wear all that often. I made the top well before I’d sewn any high-waisted pants, so it was a touch too short for me to enjoy wearing it with my jeans, and so it got pushed to the back… Continue reading Ethel Designer Top
This Montrose Top from Cashmerette is going to be a Tried-n-True pattern in my wardrobe, I can feel it in my bones! I bought this fabric as a remnant from Nerida Hansen in Australia. It sat in my stash for quite a while because it was a much thinner cotton than I had anticipated, and… Continue reading Floral Montrose top
Buying this Springfield Top pattern from Cashmerette was something I sat on for ages. It seemed too simple to purchase. Not that I have any skills making my own patterns, but I suppose I just thought I should be able to make do.
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… Continue reading Scribble Peplum top
I’ve made so.many.versions of Cashmerette‘s Rivermont Dress & Peplum pattern. I got this black ponte from Tessuti in Australia. And was only able to make both a peplum and dress from this black fabric with some serious pattern tetris work.
This StyleArc Susan Top was an easy sew, and I think I got the pattern for free as a StyleArc monthly giveaway.
I’ve made so.many.versions of Cashmerette‘s Rivermont Dress & Peplum pattern. I got this grey ponte from Tessuti in Australia. I had enough fabric to make a peplum, and I’ve also made a currently unfinished Rivermont skirt!
