Sometimes it’s the extras that make the outfit!
Wow, we’ve been blown away by all your participation in the #CurvyYearofSewing so far! The next sewing prompt is….. drumroll please…. EXTRAS AND ACCESSORIES. You might be thinking “hmm what’s that exactly?”. Well, it’s all the extra things we sew to wear that don’t typically count as garments, so :
- Undergarments: bras, knickers, socks, corsets, tights
- Hats, fascinators, hair accessories and scarves
- Belts of all types
- Shoes & sandals
- And anything else you sew to wear!
It *doesn’t* include things that don’t go on your body, like bags, home furnishings,
To get you inspired to sew along, here are a few patterns as ideas! You don’t have to make these specific patterns to take part in the challenge – pick whatever you like.
This popular underwear pattern goes up to a size 4X (58″ hip) and has 2 different styles (briefs or boyshorts) and multiple waistband, leg and lace options.
This Simplicity pattern has 3 sizes, and a variety of vintage styles. You can keep the vintage vibe, or with some different fabric choices, you can update them to a more contemporary look.
The Tropo Camisole is a knit camisole, with lots of neckline and strap options, and options for a built-in shelf bra, or nursing front. It’s available in Tuesday Stitches sizes 0 – 24, and cup sizes from A/B to E/F.
Cashmerette Patterns (yep that’s me!) is sponsoring the May/June theme with a $50 gift certificate.
The prize will be given to a participant who sews an Extras or Accessories pattern and shares it on Instagram or in our CSC Community Group on Facebook with the hashtag #CurvyYearofSewing before 7/1/18. The winner will be randomly chosen.
