This week the pattern roundup includes two recent releases and two patterns from the back catalogue. It’s great to see pattern companies who are working to extend their size range, and folks who make sleeves to fit my fat arms!
This week, the Sunday Plus-size Pattern Roundup is inspired by slip dresses and frills!
I know that’s maybe not great timing for many of you who are heading into cooler weather, but it’s supposed to be warming up here so I’m thinking of summer clothes, more linen, and maybe even some ‘flirty details’!
I thought the frilled back as an interesting feature, which matched the Friday Pattern Company Sagebrush! Check out the hashtag here.

The Nullarbor Cami and Dress from Muna and Broad is available up to a 64″ bust and 71.5″ hip. There are 3 views: a straight-cut cami, a cami cut on the bias and a bias cut dress. All are bra-strap friendly and the cami is a great scrap-buster.

Welcome to the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern roundup! Every week, I share 4 plus-size sewing patterns that are available up to at least a 50″ bust and hip. I try to keep up-to-date with new patterns, but also with lesser-known companies.
The Kapunda Undies from Leila and me at Muna and Broad is available up to a 71.5″ hip, but if that’s too small for you then we will grade this pattern up for you at no extra cost.

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! I’d love to hear your suggestions!
Welcome to the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern roundup! I’m trying to share 4 plus-size sewing patterns that are available up to at least a 50″ bust and hip. You can check out all of the posts that are part of this series here.
What is the Sunday Plus-size pattern roundup? In every post I share 4 patterns- some are old, some are new- I do try to keep track of new releases and companies that expand their sizing! Generally, I’ll only include patterns that I like (generally Indie patterns which are available as PDFs). 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.

The theme of the Sunday Pattern Roundup this week is gathers and pleats! All of these patterns are available up to at least a 50″ bust or hip! Usually I only share 4 patterns in each roundup, but I included a few bonuses this week so that there were plenty of options!
The Meadowood top is the latest pattern from Straight Stitch Design, and is available up to a 59.5″ bust and 60″ hip

The Pleated Summer Dress is designed by Emily of In The Folds and is available as a free download from the Peppermint Sewing School Website. The sizing goes up to a 51″ bust and 54.5″ hip (finished bust measurement of 53″ and 88″ hip)
