In this 3rd weekly pattern roundup, I’ve included 2 patterns which were recently updated to increase the sizing, a new pattern from a company I didn’t realise was making patterns in my size, and a free jumpsuit pattern!
Just a reminder that 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. Also, they’re all going to be patterns I’ve already made, intend to make, or would make.
Number 1, LB Pullover
LB Pullover from Paper Theory
Available now up to a 56″ bust and 57″ hip with turtle neck and crew neck options!
Number 2, A-Frame Skirt
The Blueprints for Sewing
Available now up to 61″ Hip
Number 3, The Ilford Jacket
The Ilford Jacket from Friday Pattern Company
Available up to a 54″ bust and 57″ hip, this unisex design has different views available, and can be worn as a jacket or shirt (depending on your chosen material)!
Number 4, Jumpsuit
Free Jumpsuit Patterns from the Rational Dress Society
JUMPSUIT is an ungendered, multi-use monogarment, available as an open-source pattern. The RDS has developed a sizing system that can accommodate up to 248 different body types using gender-neutral terminology.
Here’s a special Southern Hemisphere roundup, with some pattern companies from Australia and New Zealand!
Number 1, The Cornell Shirt
The Cornell Shirt from Elbe Textiles
This is a relatively new unisex pattern which has lots of wearing ease. The pattern has 2 views, View A features a button up placket, and View B a classic shirt placket.
Number 2, Mānuka dress & top
The Mānuka dress & top from Sewing Muse
Sewing Muse is based out of Wellington, New Zealand. The
Mānuka features flirty sleeves, but not an exceptionally huge size range. Number 3, “Loungewear Camisole”
Nightgown from StyleArc
I know this is marketed as pyjamas, but doesn’t this basic cami look a lot like a very popular pattern that isn’t available in plus sizes?
Number 4, Sabrina pencil skirt
Sabrina pencil skirt from Forget-me-not patterns
Also based out of Wellington, New Zealand, this skirt comes in with straight, mid and curvy-fit options.
Bonus pattern: Undies
Undies and Period Undies from Muna and Broad
A bonus bit of self-promotion about the undies that Leila and I have just released from 46″-71.5″ hip! They’re on pre-sale at the moment!
I’ve decided to start a weekly plus-size pattern roundup where every Sunday I’ll share 4 patterns; some new patterns and some old patterns that you might have missed or forgotten about!
What will be included?
This list will be entirely subjectively organised based on things that I like, but I’d love to have your suggestions (because I don’t know every plus-size sewing pattern out there).
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.
Without further ado, here’s Sunday plus-size pattern roundup #1
