These are the new Sculthorpe Pants that Leila and I have released through Muna and Broad! We’ve been testing out a few different narrow leg pants options because we know that not everyone loves wide-leg pants!
Size details: I make a size 1 in the Muna and Broad sizing (which is meant for a 54″ hip) but I have between a 53-56″ depending on the time of day and how much sun is out, etc)
Fabric info:This viscose blend from The Fabric Store. It has a small amount of one-way stretch and a lovely nubbly texture (that I hope will hold up to lots of thigh rubbing). Fabric Usage: We suggest 2.5 metres for these pants, but I can generally use less by cutting on the open.
These pants have the same crotch curve as the Glebe Pants, so I get the same great fit. The pockets are just long enough to put your hand down in to, but doesn’t require me to bend over to reach in there.
I’ve made a few versions of these pants already, and I’ve got a couple more planned (including a black canvas pair that I’ll be making as part of my next Minerva Makers project)!
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!
This jacket is available up to a 55″ hip (which isn’t especially size-inclusive) but more than that, Schittchen patterns continues to release patterns which aren’t available in their full size range. I’ve included it here as an additional pattern because I think it could be a worthwhile plus-size rain jacket (if you happen to fit in the size range).
