I’m passionate about encouraging more plus size women to get sewing and blogging, so I thought one helpful first step might be to let everyone know which patterns could fit them. Now bear in mind, all patterns are alterable – the most common one for me, a Full Bust Adjustment, can add multiple inches onto the measurement of any patterns, and there are others specifically for the waist and hips. However, you need to know where you start.
Three cheers for independents like Style Arc, Cake, and Colette for venturing above the apparently scary heights of a 45 inch bust. And for the others? Well, maybe you should let them know that plus size sewists are out there and we’d love to give them their cash if only they’d accommodate us.
