Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #13

This week’s plus-size pattern roundup has a winter theme if you live somewhere mild like I do, or a spring/autumn theme if you live somewhere less mild!

All of the patterns here are available up to either a 50″ bust or 50″hip (preferably both)

Number 1, Slouchy Cardigan

The Slouchy Cardi from Peppermint Magazine (AKA In The Folds)

This free pattern is available up to a size K or 45.5″ (116cm) waist and a 62″ (158cm) finished hip.

Number 2, Sculthorpe Pants

The Sculthorpe Pants from Muna and Broad

These pants are available from a 46-71.5″ hip and have just been launched by Leila and I!

Number 3, Rushcutter Dress

Rushcutter Dress from In The Folds

In The Folds patterns are available up to a 51.5″ bust and 54.5″ hip and drafted for B-cup. View A has 3/4 raglan sleeves and in denim makes for a great winter dress to pair with stockings!

Number 4, Fuller Cardigan

The Fuller Cardigan from Cashmerette

The Fuller cardigan is available up to size 32 which goes to a 62″ bust and 62″ hip.

I wasn’t crazy about the cardigan when it came out- I thought both had quite strong vintage vibes. But Cashmerette recently posted a tutorial on how to hack the pattern in to a sweater!

Viscose Tweed Sculthorpe Pants

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)!

Gingham Torrens Box Top

Torrens Gingham

I made this Torrens Box Top in
cosy ‘Savvy Gingham’ from Miss Maude. The fibre content is 88% Cotton, 7% Linen, 5% Wool and it’s a delight.

I thought I could squeeze a long-sleeve version out of this fabric, but was foiled due the narrow width of this fabric.

Torrens Gingham

It was great to sew and it’s lovely to wear, although I do regret not ordering a little bit extra so that I could make it long-sleeve.

I finished the neckline facing off with one of these gorgeous bright pink labels from the Stitch Collective. You can win a whole set of labels from Stitch Collective by tagging an inspirational maker over on this instagram post (until Feb 23rd)!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #12

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!

Number 1, Laminaria Swimsuit

The Laminaria Swimsuit from Tuesday Stitches

Available up to a size 24 or 55″ hip

Check out some great photos from the pattern testers here or this great review from Wis for inspo.

Number 2, Wide-Strap Maxi Dress

Wide-Strap Maxi Dress from Peppermint Sewing School by Elbe Textiles (this is a free pattern)!

For inspiration check out; Christmas red linen from Katie_Parrott, green linen from TheLadyWhoLunches, white and black scribbles from MaggieWix,

Number 3, Olive Jumpsuit

The Olive Jumper from Untitled Thoughts

Available up to a 58″ hip

Number 4, Thelma Jumpsuit

The Thelma Jumpsuit from Merchant & Mills

Available up to 57.5″ hip and was released recently as part of the Merchant & Mills extended size range.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #11

This roundup features a jacket from Schnittchen patterns which is available

Number 1, Thayer Jacket

Thayer Jacket from Grainline Studios

One of the 2 first patterns to be released from Grainline as part of their extended sizing.

I love the pink cord sample but other inspiring makes include Jen’s ‘Loon Watch’ Thayer, this other pink cord version and the #grainlinethayer and #thayerjacket hashtags

Number 2, Somerfield Coat

The Somerfield Coat from Elbe Textiles

Check out the Somerfield coat from Katie of Sew Altered Style, and the hashtag on instagram!

Number 3, Nathalie Bodysuit

The Nathalie Bodysuit from Untitled Thoughts

Number 4, Ashton Top

Plus the Amy Parka

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).
