Plus size sewing patterns
Plus Size 16-24
To make a pattern
The first step is the most important. You must create a pattern to follow. It can be made of paper. I sometimes used newspaper even. But there are special papers for patterns that are not so fragile. You can put needles through it and use it over and over again.
When you make this first pattern, take your time. Dont loose courage. Keep doing the nessecary changes and you will not be sorry. You can use your pattern a long time to a lot of clothes.
Even when you buy a ready made pattern you might need to change it to fit your body. We are all special and have different shapes and sizes. I have for one thing one size over the waist and two sizes larger below! I need to adjust the patterns accordingly!

Do it yourself!
If you are a plus size women, it can be depressing to find nice modern clothes. All these mirrors in the try out huts is mercyless. I have many times thought that THIS one will be ok. But there is always a too narrow sleeve, a narrow collar or it is too short.
I descided to at least TRY to make my own basic clothes. To my surprice it is not difficult at all! Once you have a pattern ready and fitting, you can use it for so many different clothes. I for instance have the same pattern for night gowns as for dresses. The same for shorts as for pants.
What material you choose is also making a BIG difference. An evening dress can be just that if you choose silk or another expensive looking material.
