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
This pattern has been growing on me, thanks to extra inspiration from my real-life sewing buddy Sue , @Threadyforit, @Arrowmountain, @topstitchgirl, and @daisysewcrazy
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
The Lisa Bias Skirt from Pattern Union is available up to a Size 26 or 44.5″ waist and 56″ hip
I’m very intrigued by bias skirts right now and check out this Lisa skirt and this one for some inspiration or check out this pinterest board of bias skirt inspiration!
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.

Please tell me who I’ve missed! Who else should I be following for visibly-fat plus-size fashion inspiration?
I want to see Calder on someone at the top of the size range but haven’t found and pics yet. I’m reconsidering Pona (which I didn’t like when I made) so thanks for that!
