#MMMayPlus2020

This Me Made May I’ll be taking part by wearing mostly me-made clothes for the month of May and endeavouring to avoid a single repeat outfit.

I’ll also be sharing pictures, sketches or flat-lays of my outfits and using #MMMayPlus2020

Last year for MMMay I did manage to wear me made clothes for the month of May, but I didn’t manage to finish all my unfinished objects (which was my other goal for the month).

I’ve organised a series of giveaways to celebrate plus-size sewing which will be shared through www.fatsewing.club, @fatsewing.club on instagram and on my instagram account @fat.bobbin.girl

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 1, Rio Ringer

The Rio Ringer T-Shirt and Dress from True Bias is available in plus-sizes from 14-30, or up to a 57.5″ bust and 59.5″ hip

Number 2, Sunday V-Neck

The Sunday V Neck from Friday Pattern Co. is a free unisex-pattern which is available up to a 4X or 54″ bust and 57″ hip


Number 3, Montlake

The Montlake from Straight Stitch Design is available up to a size 34, or 59.5″ bust and 60″ hip

Check out this striped make from Kristinesews, this floral tester version, this great striped version, this version from KZ, and this make from Needlesnbeetles.

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.

The perfect merino turtleneck pattern throwdown

I’ve decided to take advantage of this long-weekend to find the perfect pattern to use for my treasured marsala merino, which I’d like to make the winter-layering-turtleneck-of-my-dreams from!

Since we’re in lockdown here in NZ and it’s not possible to print any new patterns out, this throwdown has been limited to patterns that I already have printed. Spoiler Alert: after making them, I’m still not sure which one should be the winner (or if I should keep looking), so I’d love to hear your opinions.
