Jenny: I’m finding new patterns to sew instead of my current overall pattern. The next attempt for me is one by True Bias Riley. Check my Instagram as well to see the experiment I’ve got going on with these stubbornly popular overalls that the design is not planning to extend sizing on – I’m trying them in sizes 22 to 30 to show how they fit on my body (which is 1” outside of the patterns range at the size 30).
Beverly shared with me that she just doesn’t make things we can’t talk about on the show, so I’m going to try that too. Fingers crossed I can be more aware and do better.
First make of the year – Sew House Seven Free Range slacks (Up to 65” hip here) using the leftover blue/purple gingham linen from Merchant and Mills, that came all the way from England but still qualifies as #pfLocalFabric.
Closet Core has started a subscription service (all new Closet Core patterns are drafted up to size 32, which is 61” hip for them) similar to what Cashmerette has done. Stringthing gave me a different perspective on this that I would like to discuss.
Paradise Patterns Protea pants max 61” hip
The Protea Pant is a modern trouser with chic front pleats, sweeping pant legs, and a curved waistband. It offers two ways of sewing the waistband. The first way is better for light-to-midweight fabrics, and if you like the look of topstitching. The second method is for mid-to-heavyweight fabrics, or if you like a clean, more traditional trouser waistband. View A has pleats in front, View B has a flat front. This pattern will teach you some fun techniques, including:
Tammy Handmade Mila Jumper – max 60” hip size chart
The Mila Jumper is a stylish pattern that features dolman dropped sleeves that are wider at the shoulder and then taper at the wrists. This slip-on and slouchy fit makes the perfect cozy jumper for beginner sewists looking for a quick yet satisfying make! This jumper can easily be hacked for a cropped look or longer length.
Birgitta Helmerson Bell Jacket – max 60” hip
This is an oversized jacket with a rounded collar, front button closure, 3 front patch pockets, an inverted box pleat at the centre back neck, and wide sleeves that are perfect for fitting all of your winter layers underneath. The Bell jacket gets it’s name from the bell shaped sleeve, created with several darts sewn into the hem of the sleeve. This jacket is fully lined.
Xanthe Woven Dress from Style Arc – up to 70” hip
“A” line dress featuring front tucks, long sleeves, “V” neck and collar.
