Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup #27

This week the pattern roundup includes two recent releases and two patterns from the back catalogue. It’s great to see pattern companies who are working to extend their size range, and folks who make sleeves to fit my fat arms!

You can check out all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here.

Number 1, Sofia Dress & Top

The Sofia Dress & Top from Victory Patterns is their first pattern in their new, extended size range.

This pattern is available up to a 58″ bust and 60″ hip. Read more about the expanded size range here.

Number 2, Sleeves for Ashton Top

Sleeve Expansion for the Ashton Top from Helen’s Closet.

Helen has added a sleeve expansion pack which can be purchased as an add-on for the Ashton Top. The pattern seems to have built in room for large biceps, which is great.

Number 3, Barkly Skirt

The Barkly Skirt from In The Folds is available up to a 54 3/4″ hip and comes with the longer view pictured here and a shorter view (which potentially sits higher on the waist).

Number 4, Geodesic Sweatshirt

The Geodesic Sweatshirt from Blueprints for Sewing is available up to a 52″ bust and 55″ hips and the website indicates that sizes will be expanded in 2020 up to a 60″ bust and 61″ hip

  1. I love the geodesic! It’s the pattern that I got fixated on that made me start sewing. I made the next to largest size (pre-expanded sizes) and be warned it’s more of a boat neck, since the neckline scales with the triangles. I haven’t done much pattern alteration and am not sure if there’s a way around this.
