Listening to this brought tears to my eyes. I am and have always been a plus size sewist. I spent years teaching myself to grade out and draft patterns. It was a long tough, frustrating road, and although I am much more successful these days, I am so appreciative of companies that truly commit to including me in their pattern ranges. It reduces the work and maximizes the joy of sewing for me. I support every pattern company I can find. 48-50-60 BWH. Love you both and thank you for voicing a need that has been a true wish of mine for literally years. Dreams can come true!
Thanks so much for listening and sharing your experience. It’s really wonderful to hear that something we have done helps in any small way.
