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!
The pattern roundup today features patterns which are available up to at least a 50″ bust or hip. Ultimately, I’d like to use the 60″ standard that’s been set by the knitting world, but at the moment that’d make for a pretty small list.
Neither this roundup nor any future roundup will include pattern companies who release patterns that are not available in plus-sizes (for example, if they have two pattern lines, one for straight sizes and one for plus-sizes and every pattern that they release isn’t available for both size ranges).
Back in 2009 (8 years before I started sewing), I was obsessed with this button-back Vogue blouse from Gertie. These days I’m more aware that the Vogue blouse isn’t for me, but I can absolutely wearing this casual top (even though there’s all those button-holes to make)!
The roundup for this Sunday featured a selection of patterns that aren’t new, you’re not likely to have missed their arrival but maybe they’ve fallen off your radar in the meantime? I often find myself purchasing (and sometimes even immediately printing) patterns which take my fancy, and then they sit, waiting for inspiration to strike. Often, all it takes is a little nudge, or the perfect fabric to cross my path and we’re off again. Hopefully, something here will give you the nudge you need!
Who printed this off as soon as it arrived in her inbox and then has swiftly procrastinated for months and months? It’s me! I love this sample picture and feel like I’d use this pattern a lot if I bothered to sew it up for myself!
Like the Sienna jacket above, this Reed skirt was part of the first patterns released by big indie sewing businesses Grainline & Closet Case. Almost a year on from the online-plus-size-sewing drama, it’s great to see that we’ve got some movement towards size inclusion in indie-sewing!
