Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #20

For the 20th edition of my Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup I wanted to include some plus-size style icons because it’s often difficult to find plus-size inspiration, especially when so many makers the using the “plus-size” and “curvy” hashtags are often full of bodies who aren’t visibly fat.

Below are the patterns in the roundup for this week and underneath those are some inspiring plus-size fashion instagram accounts!

Number 1, Trapeze Dress

The Trapeze Dress from Merchant and Mills is available in plus sizes from 47.5-57.5″ hip

This dress is part of the recent extended sizes from Merchant and Mills and I love how they’ve styled the dress since it shows that this sleeveless dress can be worn all-year-round.

For Inspiration: Check out this lovely blue version, this chartreuse version, this large-scale print version, and this all-over-daisy version.

Number 2, Pona Jacket

The Pona Jacket from Helen’s Closet is available up to a Size 30 or up to a 56″ bust and 58″ hip

Number 3, Calder Pants

The Calder Pants from Cashmerette is available from a 42-62″ hip (their new extended size range)

These pants were released this week and come in Cashmerette’s classic pear and apple pelvis options. Cashmerette also rounded up a great selection of popular curvy sewists in these pants here and shared a blog full of wide-leg-pants inspiration!

Number 4, Lisa Bias Skirt

Bonus Pattern, Jeannie Dress

The Jeannie Dress from Schnittchen Patterns is available up to a size 56EU (which is a 53.54″ bust and 55.91″ hip).

Schnittchen don’t release all their patterns in their extended-size range, but they do have some unique designs and a unique aesthetic.

@marielle.elizabeth who shares slow fashion and has great things to say about bodies, @lydiahudgens who is an amazing photographer with an amazing sense of style, @emmisnicker shares small-plus-size minimalism. @Lvernon2000 who is a plus-size hijabi model with an incredible collection of colourful outfits, @styleisstyle who you might have seen modelling the clothes of slow-fashion companies, @nearandchar who provides dress-inspiration-galore , @mayralouise who has an amazing aesthetic and gorgeous curly-hair, @bethany_rutter who works for Navabi fashion and is also a little bit in to sewing, @sarabrowndesign who is the colour guru we all need, @shannydoots who is an in-betweenie who shares gorgeous slow-fashion pieces, and @noranoranora who shares plus-size outfits from her slow-fashion wardrobe.

Please tell me who I’ve missed! Who else should I be following for visibly-fat plus-size fashion inspiration?

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #19

This Sunday plus-size pattern roundup is an entirely subjectively organised list of things that I like. In order to be included, the patterns will need to have either bust or hip measurements of over 50″, but preferably they’ll have both.

I’ll also only share patterns that I like, either I will have made them or intend to make them. So, this isn’t exactly a ‘new patterns list’, it’s more of a ‘list of patterns Jess likes’!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #18

The plus-size pattern roundup this weekend could be a great opportunity to bring up the plus-size pattern hashtag- add a ‘plus’ to the end of the hashtag.

For example, the #ZadieJumpsuit becomes the #ZadieJumpsuitPlus! It’s a great way to ensure that, even for really popular patterns, there’s any easy way to search for folks with bodies like yours in the pattern!
