Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #31

There’s a couple of new releases in the roundup this week! You can see all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here.

When I was planning these pattern roundups I wanted to make the cut off measurement 60″ for the bust or hips, but I realised pretty soon that that would be an incredibly short roundup. So few companies are making patterns above the 60″ mark.

I’m a 56″ hip, so I’ll inevitably end up sharing patterns here that I actually can’t make myself because I’m hunting for things above a 50″ hip. Although I have complex feelings about sharing companies with sizes that don’t actually include me, I know that if you’re above a 50″ hip or bust then you don’t always have the luxury of being picky about whether folks above you are being included since there’s already so few patterns that are available to you.

Perhaps now that more companies are extending their sizes, it’s time for me to move the yardstick to 60″? Let me know if you have any thoughts or feelings on what you’d like to see in the roundup.

Number 1, August Skirt

The August Skirt from Make by The Fabric Store is part of 4 new patterns released by them this past week. These patterns are available in sizes 4 – 32 and up to a 58.7″ and 62.8″ hip.

In an excellent move, TFS will grade the patterns for you if you fall outside of their current range.

I wanted to add in a comment here that TFS offering grading for folks outside their size range is a great move, and one that I hope sets the scene for more pattern makers to offer this service. It’s especially great since TFS essentially launched their pattern range, and their largest size is already larger than where many pattern companies have ‘extended out to’ over the past year!

Number 2, Burnside Bibs

The Burnside Bibs from Sew House 7 are available up to a 61.5″ bust and 65″ hip

This pattern is part of the ‘Curvy Fit Range‘ from Sew House 7, which is their extended size range.

Number 3, Lolo Blouse

The Lolo Blouse from Style Sew Me is available up to a 53″ bust and 55″ hip.

Number 4, Lennox Boilersuit

The Lennox Boilersuit from Homer + Howells is available up to a 52″ hip, and a 48 7/8″ bust.
