I’ve decided to start a weekly plus-size pattern roundup where every Sunday I’ll share 4 patterns; some new patterns and some old patterns that you might have missed or forgotten about!
What will be included?
This list will be entirely subjectively organised based on things that I like, but I’d love to have your suggestions (because I don’t know every plus-size sewing pattern out there).
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.
Without further ado, here’s Sunday plus-size pattern roundup #1
Number 1, the Flynn Jacket from In The Folds
The Flynn Jacket from Australian pattern-maker Emily of In The Folds
Blogless Anna has made a gorgeous yellow version, there’s some gorgeous pictures here from Roxyintransit and The Mindful Sewist has some lovely pictures, and I have some much less lovely pictures too.
Both views are designed for bottom weight fabrics. The inside is finished with bias bound seams, so gorgeous insides abound.
View A is a long sleeved, drop shoulder jacket with an inverted box-pleat in the back
View B is sleeveless, includes underarm facing and a flat back (without pleats).
Number 2, the Adeline Dress from StyleArc
There are so many inspiring versions of this dress online! Check out these ones from Gillian from Craftin’ a Rainbow (left), Jenny from Cashmerette, Mie from Sewing Like Mad, Lara from Thornberry and this one from Gillian for Califabrics.
I’ve made this dress in pineapple printed linen, in crazy check printed linen, in scribble rayon and in marsala linen.
Number 3, the Rose Dress from Schnittchen Patterns
The Rose Dress from Schnittchen Patterns
I wish I could tell you that there’s lots of amazing versions of this dress online but I can’t find any, so here’s one that I made (the first thing that I ever sewed)!
The neckline on this is very unique (and I’m sure I’d make a much better job of it than I did in 2017), and the instructions are brief but clear.
Number 4, the Hemlock Tee from Grainline Studios
The (free) Hemlock Tee from Grainline Studios
There are multiple views & options available for this pattern: cropped length body, short sleeve, mid-length body, 3/4 sleeve, tunic length body and long sleeves. All have dropped shoulder and a round neckline.
There aren’t that many examples of this top sewn up by plus-size sewists yet, so here’s a brown one that I made! N.B I’m a knit newbie and I struggled with the neckline on this but you will probably be fine.
Do you think there’s a pattern company that I might not know about? Or a pattern that I might love? Please comment below or get in touch via instagram!
You might check out Silhouette Patterns by Peggy Sagers. All of her Patterns feature finished garment measurements and include US size28 approximately. She post posted years of tutorials as well showing how to fit her Patterns, hack her Patterns and how to grade when needed. I have had great success with everything I have bought. Thanks for this series!
Thanks for the round-up! I will be checking in on Sundays to see what you feature because you find plus size patterns that I don’t normally see!
