Plus Size Sewing Patterns

Everyone has the right to look fabulous and, more importantly, feel fantastic, in their clothing. Although high-street brands are taking steps in the right direction, the lack of fun yet functional plus size clothing leaves much to be desired. That’s why creatives are starting to take matters into their own hands and use plus size clothing patterns to make their own garments. So, whether you’re an experienced modiste or you simply want to learn about plus size sewing patterns for beginners, here’s all you need to know.

Exploring Plus Size Sewing Patterns

There’s nothing more empowering than finding beautiful plus size patterns and bringing these ideas to life. Plus, you can find the trendiest pieces and make them your own as you have total autonomy over the choice of fabric, style, and fit. Since you’re sewing patterns plus size, you’ve got the final say. Long or short, you can alter your plus size dress patterns to your heart’s desire. And the same goes for plus size skirt patterns! There’s no need to leave the house feeling uncomfortable and tug down at your clothes. Our top tip? Always be mindful of your fabric selection. If you’re using plus size skirt patterns, we recommend that you start with a sturdy yet versatile fabric like denim. For plus size dress patterns, we recommend using a material like jersey or knit. Stretch fabrics are fantastic at hugging your curves and easy to adjust. However, if you’re looking at plus size sewing patterns for beginners, you may want to start off with a fabric like cotton.

Choosing the Right Plus Size Patterns

When selecting the perfect plus size sewing patterns, you need to be mindful of a few pointers. Firstly, you’ll need to find a pattern that is in line with your ability to sew. Consider what styles will look best with your curves and what fabric you should opt for. If you have an hourglass figure, don’t steer towards plus size dress patterns made for pear-shaped bodies. Sizing and measurements are essential parts of the plus size clothing patterns process. For the best results, you should: Take down measurements more than once to ensure an accurate reading. Only use high-quality tools such as flexible fabric tape. Wear form-fitting underwear to avoid any distorted measurements. Avoid twisting or turning the tape while taking down measurements. Follow the measuring guide instructions carefully. Not all plus size clothing patterns are made the same. You’ll also need to factor in the provider, how clear their instructions are, the range of size options they carry, and the overall fit they create.
