Not my usual colour-scheme, this seersucker gingham was love at first sight, but I wish past me had purchased maybe 30cm more fabric!

It’s that time of the week again!
The roundup is ordered by the size range of the company, and you can see all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here. You can also see all the patterns from previous roundups which are available over a 60″ hip.
The new Heather Blazer from Friday Pattern Co. is available up to a 60″ bust and 63″ hip.
This week, I was inspired by an email newsletter from Helen’s Closet about their Avery Leggings being on sale, so I decided to take an undergarment/athleisure/comfie lounging theme for the Sunday Plus-Size Pattern Roundup this week.
The Banksia Bralette from Muna and Broad is designed for larger bodies and comes in 2 cup sizes and with a narrow shoulder option.
The Banksia Bralette is available up to a 64″ full bust, and if you our sizes are too small for you, Muna and Broad will grade the pattern up to your size for no additional charge. The unique internal powermesh slings provide light support and separate the breasts- no more sweaty uni-boob!
Welcome to the first plus-size pattern roundup of 2021!
The roundup is ordered by the size range of the company, and you can see all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here and you can see all the patterns from previous roundups which are available over a 60″ hip.
The Shoalhaven Shacket is the latest release from Muna and Broad. Available up to a 71.5″ hip
This Shoalhaven is designed for medium to heavyweight fabrics like wool coatings, boiled wool, thick cotton moleskin, soft/washed denims, canvas, cotton twill, or even corduroy.
This isn’t an especially seasonal release for us down here in the Southern Hemisphere, but we did have a little cold snap here in Christchurch around Christmas, so it wasn’t too sweltering for me to take pictures of my wool Shoalhaven Shacket, the latest release from Muna and Broad!//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
I took some time this afternoon to sew up the cross-body apron that was the Muna and Broad November Patreon Pattern Bonus. The cross-body apron comes in large adult, small adult and child sizes, and Leila and I have been calling it the Apreon!
I made an exciting purchase/investment recently, and I’m now the very proud owner of a large-format printer- so I can now print my own A0 patterns while I’m still in my PJs!
I do a lot of printing as part of the Muna and Broad pattern development process, and since the going rate for A0 prints here in NZ is $7, that was adding up pretty quickly! After a decent amount of number crunching, the numbers suggested that it could work, so long as I had somewhere in my new rental for it to go!
And, here it is! Right now, it’s taken over my dining room table, and led to a serious re-ordering of my work/lounge/dining space. But, I’m so excited to have the capability to be a bit more self sufficient, and to also offer prints for other local folks. It doesn’t make sense to print and ship patterns from me (most other countries seem to have printing that is a whole lot cheaper than the cost of printing large format prints here in NZ), but for now I’m printing for folks based in Christchurch and doing pickup by arrangement.
And so I’ve launched a new website (www.ChChsews.com) and I’ve added another Instagram account to my app (@ChChsews) and I’ve got a Facebook page too (/ChChsews)!
A0 printing is $6 per A0 page, and I can also print A4 files too for folks who want their instructions printed, or for patterns that are just a couple of small pages (so aren’t worth printing as an A0)!
This week’s pattern roundup includes 2 free sewing patterns. I’ve decided that the order of the roundup will be informed by the size range, with the largest size range being listed first!
You can see all of the posts that are part of the Plus-Size Pattern Roundup series here and you can see all the patterns from previous roundups which are available over a 60″ hip.
The free Cass T-shirt from Sie Macht’s D cup size range goes up to a 66″ full bust and 70″ hip. The pattern itself is free, and there are instructions on the blog, but you can also buy printable PDF instructions for $3. You can get the pattern by signing up to the email newsletter.
