I’ve been on the hunt for free plus size sewing patterns for beginners and have accumulated quite the list! In order to avoid over-saturation I’m going to release a list of 10 twice a week until I run out. I hope there will be plenty to inspire you! If you’re a pattern designer and you offer a free plus size sewing pattern, please get in touch!
1. Sorbetto from Colette Patterns
This is one of the OG free Indie patterns.
Size: Available up to size 26 or a 58″ hip
2. Laundry Day Tee from Love Notions
There are so many variations available here! Follow the link to sign up for her facebook page to get the discount code.
Size: Available up to an 5XL or a 59.5″ hip
3. Morning Glory Top from Sarah Kirsten
Sign up to Sarah’s email list to get access to the free pattern. Check out the version I made here.
Size: Because the instructions step you through drafting the top for yourself, there is no ‘size’ as such.
4. Slouchy Cardi from Peppermint Magazine
One of the many free patterns drafted by In The Folds for Peppermint Magazine and very seasonally appropriate for both hemispheres right now. Check out Debbie’s version here.
Size: Available to 54″ hip
5. Reagan Raglan from Bella Sunshine Designs
Both v-neck and scooped neckline and says that a bust adjustment is included in the pattern!
Size: Up to a size 30 or 59.75″ hip
6. Chloe Skirt & Maxi from Made for Mermaids
‘This is the perfect project for someone who is new to sewing or has been afraid to try a knit pattern. Extremely QUICK a-line skirt with only 4 seams and a hem.’
Size: Up to size ‘Red’ or a 54″ hip
7. Maple Culottes from Mood
If you’re unsure whether culottes are for you, maybe a free pattern will tip you over the edge?
Size: up to a size 30 or 63″ hip
8. Avast Circle Vest from Patterns for Pirates
Aaaa-ren’t you glad you’re reading this list? ‘The perfect little throw on vest that is super simple and quick to make.’
Size: up to a 58″ hip but presumable pretty open sizing.
9. Maya Bra from AFI Atelier
Check out this review on CSC of the Maya Bra by Andie of Sew Pretty in Pink. That’s her lovely version pictured!
Size: So Many Sizes.
10. Peplum top from Peppermint Magazine
I love my version of this top, and it’s a shape too easily dismissed when searching for curvy sewing patterns.
Size: Up to a 54″ hip but so much positive ease means the actual sizing will be much larger.
Come back at the same time next week for 10 more free printable plus size sewing patterns. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions please add them to the comments!
You can find other FREE Plus Size Sewing Patterns in this blog. Curvy Sewing Collective also has a Resources Page with a list of companies that offer sewing patterns going into the plus size range.
Love the styles and see big sizes, hope to make some of them
