Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #22

It’s been a long time between posts in my Sunday Plus Size Sewing pattern series, which was a weekly occurrence earlier in the year, but which fell by the wayside!

What do I share?

In every post I share 4 patterns- some are old, some are new.

Generally, I’ll only include patterns that I like! It’s biased, but I’m not interested in rounding up fit and flare dresses for the masses.

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.

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!

Check out the previous posts here.

Number 1, Ninja Top & Dress

Stokx Patterns are a relatively new, and even newer-to-me pattern company based in Berlin. The Ninja Top & Dress is available up to a 59″ bust and 60″ hip.

Not all of their patterns are available in this extended range, but the newer ones seem to be. Stokx Patterns come from Stokx’ RTW clothing shop in Berlin, so I presume they’ve been extensively fit-tested by real people!

Check out @weboughtamanor’s gorgeous purple version

Number 2, Grainger Coat

I’m on a cool-weather vibe with this roundup, so it seemed like a great time to include the latest pattern from Leila and me- the Grainger Coat, a quilted coat with 2 lengths.

Available up to a 71.5″ hip, we will grade the pattern up to your size at no extra cost if our patterns are too small for you.

Number 3, Arlo Track Jacket

The latest pattern from Friday Pattern Co, the Arlo Track Jacket is available up to a 60″ bust and 63″ hip.

Sold a unisex pattern, this comes in a variety of lengths!

Number 4, Pekka Jacket

The Pekka Jacket from France based Ready to Sew is available up to a 54″ bust and 59.5″ hip

I like how this pattern could fill the gap left because some other haori style patterns aren’t as size-inclusive as this one. But, the large format files are laid out in a way that requires you to trace your pattern pieces off- this is a bit of a bummer for those of us who love digital precisely because it allows us to skip the tracing!

Keep an eye out next Sunday for the next edition of my Sunday Sewing Pattern Roundup!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #21

There’s a strong t-shirt theme this week (purely because of what’s been released over the last few days, and also patterns that I’d planned to share with you)!

Number 4, Avril Jacket

The Avril Jacket from Fibremood

Finding information on this jacket is a huge exercise in frustration, but I think I can tell you that the XXXL (the largest size) is available up to a 52″ hip.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #20

For the 20th edition of my Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup I wanted to include some plus-size style icons because it’s often difficult to find plus-size inspiration, especially when so many makers the using the “plus-size” and “curvy” hashtags are often full of bodies who aren’t visibly fat.

Below are the patterns in the roundup for this week and underneath those are some inspiring plus-size fashion instagram accounts!

Number 1, Trapeze Dress

The Trapeze Dress from Merchant and Mills is available in plus sizes from 47.5-57.5″ hip

This dress is part of the recent extended sizes from Merchant and Mills and I love how they’ve styled the dress since it shows that this sleeveless dress can be worn all-year-round.

For Inspiration: Check out this lovely blue version, this chartreuse version, this large-scale print version, and this all-over-daisy version.

Number 2, Pona Jacket

The Pona Jacket from Helen’s Closet is available up to a Size 30 or up to a 56″ bust and 58″ hip

This pattern has been growing on me, thanks to extra inspiration from my real-life sewing buddy Sue , @Threadyforit, @Arrowmountain, @topstitchgirl, and @daisysewcrazy

Number 3, Calder Pants

The Calder Pants from Cashmerette is available from a 42-62″ hip (their new extended size range)

These pants were released this week and come in Cashmerette’s classic pear and apple pelvis options. Cashmerette also rounded up a great selection of popular curvy sewists in these pants here and shared a blog full of wide-leg-pants inspiration!

Number 4, Lisa Bias Skirt

The Lisa Bias Skirt from Pattern Union is available up to a Size 26 or 44.5″ waist and 56″ hip

I’m very intrigued by bias skirts right now and check out this Lisa skirt and this one for some inspiration or check out this pinterest board of bias skirt inspiration!

Bonus Pattern, Jeannie Dress

The Jeannie Dress from Schnittchen Patterns is available up to a size 56EU (which is a 53.54″ bust and 55.91″ hip).

Schnittchen don’t release all their patterns in their extended-size range, but they do have some unique designs and a unique aesthetic.

@marielle.elizabeth who shares slow fashion and has great things to say about bodies, @lydiahudgens who is an amazing photographer with an amazing sense of style, @emmisnicker shares small-plus-size minimalism. @Lvernon2000 who is a plus-size hijabi model with an incredible collection of colourful outfits, @styleisstyle who you might have seen modelling the clothes of slow-fashion companies, @nearandchar who provides dress-inspiration-galore , @mayralouise who has an amazing aesthetic and gorgeous curly-hair, @bethany_rutter who works for Navabi fashion and is also a little bit in to sewing, @sarabrowndesign who is the colour guru we all need, @shannydoots who is an in-betweenie who shares gorgeous slow-fashion pieces, and @noranoranora who shares plus-size outfits from her slow-fashion wardrobe.

Please tell me who I’ve missed! Who else should I be following for visibly-fat plus-size fashion inspiration?

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #19

This Sunday plus-size pattern roundup is an entirely subjectively organised list of things that I like. 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.

I’ll also only share patterns that I like, either I will have made them or intend to make them. So, this isn’t exactly a ‘new patterns list’, it’s more of a ‘list of patterns Jess likes’!

I love the look of Sew House 7’s patterns and I’m so excited to see this size range continue for future patterns.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #18

The plus-size pattern roundup this weekend could be a great opportunity to bring up the plus-size pattern hashtag- add a ‘plus’ to the end of the hashtag.

For example, the #ZadieJumpsuit becomes the #ZadieJumpsuitPlus! It’s a great way to ensure that, even for really popular patterns, there’s any easy way to search for folks with bodies like yours in the pattern!

Number 1, Box Box

The Box Box from Merchant and Mills is available up to a size 28 or 55″ bust and 57.5″ hip

I wasn’t able to find any plus-size makers in this pattern- if you’ve made this pattern, let me know!

The Fauntleroy from Straight Stitch Designs is available up to a size 24 or 50.5″ bust and 53″ hip

Check out this version from Jennifer of weboughtamanor, this pink beauty from Sierra Burrell, Jen of Jugonevas, and this heathered blue make from Maria.

Number 3, Zadie Jumpsuit

The Zadie Jumpsuit from Paper Theory is available up to Size 28, or a 57.5″ hip

I’ve never seen a Zadie Jumpsuit that I didn’t love, so inspiration is easy. Check out Shannon from Raredevice, Gillian from CraftingaRainbow, Erincharter’s peach number, Cat from Itprill, this amazing patterned Zadie, this burgundy number, this bold-pink-check Zadie, Natasja’s gorgeous version, and Vellumblue’s patterned number.

Number 4, Coral Cardigan

The Coral Cardigan from Style Arc has great pockets (that I’ve been seeing a lot of in patterns and I Love Them). Meg made a great white version andthis floral version is dreamy!
