Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #17

The highlight in patterns for me this week was seeing Grainline Studio release the latest pattern in their extended sizing and also finding that Amy Nicole Studio has released a pants pattern up to a 61″ hip! My aim with these roundups is to share patterns available up to a 50″ hip or 50″ bust (but I generally only share patterns that I would happily make and wear)!

This number isn’t arbitrary, I’d love to only share patterns that are available up to 60″ bust and 60″ hips, but that would make for a pretty short roundup! I’m eternally optimistic for the future of plus-size sewing patterns and hope that even pattern companies who’ve already extended up will continue up past the 60″ mark!

Number 1, Uniform Tunic

The Uniform Tunic from Grainline Studios is now available up to size 30 or 59″ hip

Number 2, Nita Trousers

The Nita Trousers from Amy Nicole Studio are available up to a size 30 or 61″ hip

Amy has studied at the
Fashion Institute of Technology and has a degree in Fashion Design. Is that why the fit on this pair from @Denise.Does looks so good? Maybe. This check pair is pretty excellent too and this brick pair too!

Number 3, Amelie Dress

The Amelie Dress from Untitled Thoughts is available up to a size 16 (or 56″ bust) and comes with B and DD cup options.

Number 4, Free Range Slacks

The Free-Range Slacks from Sew House 7

These pants sneak in to the roundup with an top hip measurement of 50″

I really love the style of the Sew House 7 patterns, so I really hope that they continue to extend their sizes!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #16

If only every week was as busy as last week in the plus-size sewing pattern world, with Elbe Textiles releasing the Page Dress and indie darling Closet Case Patterns releasing 3 patterns in their new extended size range! This week sees Workroom Social enter the plus-size sewing market, having extended the size-range on their Claryville Jeans (see below)! The other patterns this week are of varying ages, and are all available to at least a 50″ hip

Number 1, Claryville Jeans

Claryville Jeans

The Claryville Jeans from Workroom Social have just been released up to size 28 (or 60″ hip)!

I’ve got a pair of these jeans mostly cut out, and now just need to find the time to sew them up!

Number 2, Lichen Duster

The Lichen Duster from Sew Liberated is available up to size 30 (or 57″ hip) and is the largest size so far released by Sew Liberated

There are some great photos of the coat worn in versatile ways (including as a wrap dress of sorts). Check out these versions from Meg and Jacqueline!

Number 3, Winslow Culottes

The Winslow Culottes from Helen’s Closet are available up to a 58″ hip

For some inspiration check out What Lydia Made, Sew Anemone, Crafting a Rainbow, Cookin’ and Craftin’, and Emotothethird!

Number 4, Autumn Dress

The Autumn Dress from StyleArc is available up to a 61″ hip

Check out these versions from Katherine, Mie, Lara, Meg, and Megan!

And: Betty Top

The Betty Top from Schnittchen is available up to a size UK26 or 55.91″ hip

Check out this gorgeous short-sleeve version from Garichild, which is how I originally discovered the pattern!

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #15

This week, there’s been a number of new releases for plus-size sewing patterns! There’s 6 patterns included in the roundup this week, 4 of them brand new!

It seems that a lot of the ‘patterns released this week’ blog posts have died off since Helen’s Closet and the Curvy Sewing Collective are no longer rounding up the latest releases. Please send me through any new patterns that are available in at least a 50″ bust or hip (size chart, not finished measurement) for inclusion in the weekly roundups!

Number 1, Page Dress

The Page Dress from Elbe Textiles was released this week!

The dress has B cup and C/D cup options and is available up to a 54″ bust and 56.3″ hip

With a plain front and a tucked front option, this dress can be as involved as you choose!

Check out the dress on @cook_sew_love, on Lauren from Elbe, and on and on me!

Number 2, The Rome Collection

Closet Case Patterns have released their Cielo, Pietra & Fiore patterns in plus-size! Buy them as a bundle on sale here until the 13th of March.

The new size range for Closet Case goes up to a size 30, or 58″ bust and 61″ hip. To find this info on their website, select ‘details’ because they don’t include the size details of the extended sizing in the images (as they do for their original size range).

Number 3, Hove Jacket

The Hove Jacket from In The Folds

This jacket is available up to a size J, which is a 51 5/8″ bust and 54 3/4″ hip.

I’ve always found Emily’s ease to be very generous in the plus sizes, and I’ve rarely made the size J (although that’s the size I’d fall in to based on my hips).

Number 4, Cozy PJ’s

Cozy PJ’s from Laela Jeyne Patterns

This classic pyjama pattern includes options for sleepshirt or top and bottom (as well as variations for short and long sleeve).

Available up to 58″ bust and 58″ hip

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #14

Next Sunday is going to be quite a busy week for new plus-size sewing patterns, so here are a few older patterns that may have fallen from your memory and one of the extended-size-range patterns from Merchant & Mills.

All of these patterns are available up to at least a 50″ hip (and they generally go higher).

Number 1, Tacara

The Tacara from Seamwork

Check out this ‘Same Pattern, Different Bodies’ post on the CSC which shows a lot of my favourite plus-size sewists wearing the pattern! Also check out Shannon’s plum Tacara here, this orange version from Sara of Fabric_scraps, this make from Michelle of Clayhen and this patterned Tacara from AshBetteridge.

Number 2, Chandler Trousers

The Chandler Trousers from Untitled Thoughts

Available up to “size 16″ which has a 58” hip

Check out this lovely red pair from Sierra Burrell

Number 3, Poppy Bralette

The Poppy Bralette from House Morrighan

Available up to a 61.7″ H/I cup bust

Check out this mini-review from @WhatLydiaMade

Number 4, The 101 Trouser

The 101 Trouser from Merchant & Mills

Part of Merchant & Mills’ new plus-size range, there are available up to a size 28 (or 57.5” Hip). They’re drawstring trousers with a false fly and side pockets and are designed to sit on the waist.

I know lots of you are thinking blissfully of an approaching summer but I’ve had less than a handful of 30c+ (86F+) days and I’m already done and I’m planning ahead for my winter wardrobe! Since Christchurch is pretty mild, maybe my winter wardrobe and your spring wardrobe are the same thing!

Do you like to sew a season ahead (or at least be planning the sewing for your upcoming season)?

Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #13

This week’s plus-size pattern roundup has a winter theme if you live somewhere mild like I do, or a spring/autumn theme if you live somewhere less mild!

All of the patterns here are available up to either a 50″ bust or 50″hip (preferably both)

Number 1, Slouchy Cardigan

The Slouchy Cardi from Peppermint Magazine (AKA In The Folds)

This free pattern is available up to a size K or 45.5″ (116cm) waist and a 62″ (158cm) finished hip.

Number 2, Sculthorpe Pants

DSC_0560

The Sculthorpe Pants from Muna and Broad

These pants are available from a 46-71.5″ hip and have just been launched by Leila and I!

Number 3, Rushcutter Dress

Rushcutter Dress from In The Folds

In The Folds patterns are available up to a 51.5″ bust and 54.5″ hip and drafted for B-cup. View A has 3/4 raglan sleeves and in denim makes for a great winter dress to pair with stockings!

Number 4, Fuller Cardigan

The Fuller Cardigan from Cashmerette

The Fuller cardigan is available up to size 32 which goes to a 62″ bust and 62″ hip.

I wasn’t crazy about the cardigan when it came out- I thought both had quite strong vintage vibes. But Cashmerette recently posted a tutorial on how to hack the pattern in to a sweater!
