One of my main motivations for joining Etsy was to promote plus-size clothing as garments to make women feel sexy, rather than as tents to hide under. I also realize that many women (especially plus-size women) are hesitant about buying clothing online. So I present the first of what will hopefully be many original patterns designed for plus-size women.*
The problem with most commercially available patterns is that they are designed for one body type, and then "blown up" to larger sizes. But women are all shaped differently. That's why my pattern walks you through 12 simple steps for drafting and sewing a garment that is tailored to you.
This top can be cut and sewn in about an hour and is very easy to sew. The strapless bodice is made out stretch material and fitted to your comfort level. The wrap can be made out of the same or a different material, and is attached to the bodice. This can be made on a basic sewing machine with a zig-zag stitch.
The pattern is formatted as a downloadable PDF. You are welcome to create garments for personal use or for sale from this pattern, but not to copy or sell my pattern as your own.
This pattern requires 1 to 1.5 yards of fabric. Appropriate fabric choices would be medium weight 2-way stretch fabrics like knits or stretch velvets.
*While this design was originally created with a plus-size woman in mind, smaller women will also be able to use it. This is because each woman uses her measurements to draft the pattern.
