Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #27

This week the pattern roundup includes two recent releases and two patterns from the back catalogue. It’s great to see pattern companies who are working to extend their size range, and folks who make sleeves to fit my fat arms!

You can check out all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here.

Number 1, Sofia Dress & Top

The Sofia Dress & Top from Victory Patterns is their first pattern in their new, extended size range.

This pattern is available up to a 58″ bust and 60″ hip. Read more about the expanded size range here.

Number 2, Sleeves for Ashton Top

Sleeve Expansion for the Ashton Top from Helen’s Closet.

Helen has added a sleeve expansion pack which can be purchased as an add-on for the Ashton Top. The pattern seems to have built in room for large biceps, which is great.

Number 3, Barkly Skirt

The Barkly Skirt from In The Folds is available up to a 54 3/4″ hip and comes with the longer view pictured here and a shorter view (which potentially sits higher on the waist).

Number 4, Geodesic Sweatshirt

The Geodesic Sweatshirt from Blueprints for Sewing is available up to a 52″ bust and 55″ hips and the website indicates that sizes will be expanded in 2020 up to a 60″ bust and 61″ hip

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #26

This week, the Sunday Plus-size Pattern Roundup is inspired by slip dresses and frills!

I know that’s maybe not great timing for many of you who are heading into cooler weather, but it’s supposed to be warming up here so I’m thinking of summer clothes, more linen, and maybe even some ‘flirty details’!

You can check out all of the posts that are part of this series here.

Number 1, Lola Blouse and Dress

The Lola Blouse and Dress from Forget-me-not Patterns is available up to a 48.5″ bust and 52.5″ hip.

I thought the frilled back as an interesting feature, which matched the Friday Pattern Company Sagebrush! Check out the hashtag here.

Number 2, Nullarbor Cami

The Nullarbor Cami and Dress from Muna and Broad is available up to a 64″ bust and 71.5″ hip. There are 3 views: a straight-cut cami, a cami cut on the bias and a bias cut dress. All are bra-strap friendly and the cami is a great scrap-buster.

Number 3, Sagebrush Top

The Sagebrush Top from Friday Pattern Company is available up to a 60″ bust and 63″ hip

Number 4, Sicily Slip Dress

The Sicily Slip Dress from Sewing Patterns by Masin is available up to 54″ bust and 56″ hip, and is drafted for a B cup. This dress comes with 2 views; skinny straps and wider straps.

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #25

Welcome to the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern roundup! Every week, I share 4 plus-size sewing patterns that are available up to at least a 50″ bust and hip. I try to keep up-to-date with new patterns, but also with lesser-known companies.

You can check out all of the posts that are part of this series here.

Number 1, Kapunda Undies

The Kapunda Undies from Leila and me at Muna and Broad is available up to a 71.5″ hip, but if that’s too small for you then we will grade this pattern up for you at no extra cost.

Number 2, Te Aro Dress and Top

The Te Aro Dress and Top from Scroop Patterns is available up to a 56″ bust and 60″ hip and comes with 3 different ‘size packs’, the largest being Size 44-56.

Designed for midweight knits, View A is a long sleeve dress with an optional hood, View B is a short-sleeve top with a high-low hem and View C is a dress with high low hem and dramatic sleeves.

Number 3, Krissa Crop

The Krissa Crop from Amy Nicole Studio is a free pattern which is available up to a 56.5” bust

Number 4, Staley Top

The Staley Top from Elbe Textiles is available up to a 56.3″ hip. This pattern for knit fabrics come with two views: View A is a cropped jumper with a split hem detail and View B is a semi fitted t-shirt with a scooped neckline and a curved hem.

I try to only share pattern makers who release all their patterns in their entire size range- I don’t want to support companies who are further marginalising fat bodies, or treating us like an afterthought! I’d love to hear your suggestions!

What is the Sunday Plus-size pattern roundup?
In every post I share 4 patterns- some are old, some are new- I do try to keep track of new releases and companies that expand their sizing!
Generally, I’ll only include patterns that I like (generally Indie patterns which are available as PDFs).
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.
