So it shouldn't have surprised me much when I found, allot of the sewing pattern companies seemed to follow suit. They had some plus size patterns, but not a whole lot. That is, until I ran into a site called, Fashion Patterns by Coni at www.fashionpatterns.com (some of her patterns are also on the Butterick site as well) let me just tell you, she's awesome. Most all of her patterns range from small all the way up to 6X. Thank You Connie! Your site was like finding a golden ticket.
This is the first pattern I started on from Connie - B5473, a vest and pant set for Stephanie. The instruction are laid out very well and are easy to follow.
The instructions called for Linen or Cotton Blends, so we had to break the rules a little bit, oops. Stephanie asked if the set could be made out of a knit, so I picked out a very nice Black Point Roma knit from Joann Fabrics.
This is it. The end of my post for today. We just have one thing left....and that's the big "Shout Out".
Today that goes to Parnuuna Kristiane Thornwood of Be My Goth. Her main theme is Gothic, but she loves all types of fashion from Punk, Rockabily, Lolita, Indie, Victorian and even Hipster. She's an expert sewist and has some awesome sewing tutorials along with patterns she draft's herself. So if your looking for a interesting new site, you just have to give her a visit, she never disappoints.
Until next time....Happy Sewing! Seam Ripper Joe
