Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #43

The weekly plus-size sewing pattern roundup this week coincided with the launch of our latest pattern from Leila and me through Muna and Broad, the Birchgrove Pants! This inspired me to take a ‘fancy’ angle for the pattern roundup today! The Birchgrove Pants are available from 41.5-71.5″ (105-182cm) Hip, there’s technically no upper size limit… Continue reading Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #43

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #41

Welcome to #41 in my weekly plus-size pattern roundup! This week, I imagined a work-wear, or gardening-look vibe when putting together the roundup. That’s not to say that I necessarily think that these particular bibs or overalls would be especially practical for outdoor uses, but a bit like cottage-core they have the vibe of outdoor… Continue reading Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #41

Zadie Jumpsuit in Marsala Linen

I’ve been planning my second Zadie Jumpsuit from Paper Theory since before I finished my testing toile version. This project has sat next to my sewing table for months- it was cut out and ready to sew, since the week that the fabric arrived by post. Since the weather has started to warm up, it… Continue reading Zadie Jumpsuit in Marsala Linen

Stylearc Eme Dress in Tencel

Stylearc’s Eme Dress is touted as the roundneck sister dress to their popular Adeline Dress (which I’ve made so many versions of)! Stylearc sent me a copy of the Eme multi-size printed pattern, but quite ironically I thought I’d sew a straight size 22 and I don’t think I’ll bother grading for my (inevitable) next… Continue reading Stylearc Eme Dress in Tencel

Cashmerette Montrose: Picnic Edition

I’m amassing a collection of hacked Cashmerette Montrose Tops for workwear since I can now easily cut-out and sew one of these in about half a day. I’ve added neckline facings, which cuts down enormously on the time (I find bias binding to be a huge bummer).

All Well Bucket Bag & Pear Pouch Hacked

I’ve been working on sewing up two almost identical Mini All Well Bucket Bags for some cute young relatives that we’ll call French nieces for the sake of ease. I used these adorable ‘Ta-Da’ labels from Kylie and the Machine because I hope those will span the language barrier and improvised a way to line… Continue reading All Well Bucket Bag & Pear Pouch Hacked

Toile of Harrison Shirt from Cashmerette

I started this Cashmerette Harrison Shirt, my first shirt, with the intention of making a ‘wearable toile’ but have settled for a toile that included plenty of ‘firsts’ for me! Usually when making Cashmerette Patterns, I’m able to pick my cup size, select my bust measurement and then grade out a size or two where… Continue reading Toile of Harrison Shirt from Cashmerette
