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.
Number 2, Pona Jacket
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
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.
