Announcing SBCC Patterns!By DianeSev on 9/19/13 4:00 PM

We welcome a new pattern company to PatternReview: Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Patterns (SBCC). 

Motivated by her repeated encounters with ill-fitting clothing for petites, Betsy, the patternmaker of Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Patterns, has designed a line with this market in mind. 

Betsy explains, “I’ve always been the smallest size on the rack. As I became more aware of my shape and proportions, I have realized the lack of options for petite ladies in both the ready to wear market and home sewing patterns. Sometimes it is just about the right proportions- not just making clothing shorter.”

Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Patterns feature many patterns that are accessible for beginner sewers:

Mimosa Blouse

SBCC takes a sporty raglan top and make it into something feminine.

Lemon Drop Dress

The pullover Lemon Drop Dress highlights the racer-back style and has the alternative option to be made into a top.

Cosmo Skirt

You know those yoga pants you wear on the weekends? Why not up the style ante and keep the comfort of a yoga waistband with the sophistication of a long flared maxi skirt?

Wondering if these patterns are for you?

Betsy says, “Skinny bitches are considered anyone under 5 feet 4 inches with a shorter torso and legs, and sometimes shorter arms.  Curvy is the new normal. The average woman is not a size zero. We recognize women have curves and different fitting needs in correlation to their dress size. Our XL-3X patterns are specifically tailored to the larger lady with a shorter stature.”

For all those who are not petites, SBCC patterns can be simply modified to adjust for taller lengths.

Take a peek at Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Patterns!  Shop SBCC.

I used the free tee and the fit was great

Great concept! Extremely offensive and poor choice in name of company! If you want your business to succeed why choose to offend a large part of your potential customer base? I for one will not buy your patterns. I have no desire to spend my hard-earned money to see something bearing such an offensive brand name! I hope you re-consider your name choice...

Looking forward to trying this pattern line--I've seen so many great reviews of the freebie Tonic t-shirt (available on the SBCC web site). I love the idea of a maxi skirt that's actually proportioned for someone my height!

Where, oh where, is a sense of humor among home sewers! The company name is funny, and none of the words will be new to anyone over the age of 10 years.

Thanks for a petite pattern selection...and the name doesn't bother any more than cutesy sewing names bother me. Time for "home sewing" to join the real world....in all it's glory.

Wow. You've got everything that's right for my teenage daughter (who also sews) except that I would never buy your patterns because of the name. Daughter:" I love this skinny bitch pattern you are making for me, Mom." Nope, i don't think so. sorry.

Haven't tried the patterns, but the concept is great. However... call me narrow-minded or whatever you want, but the name of your company is a real turn-off. Sewing pattern companies should have happy names in this often cruel and vulgar world!

What an incredibly vulgar name for any pattern company. What's next, Happy Ho's Handy Helpers????

I will have to try this pattern line. My height is all in my legs, so I have a petite frame from shoulder to hip. The styles look really cute.

Well, I'm a pretty vocal fan so we'll just go right to me saying how happy I am and that I hope you eventually carry the full line because I can't use Paypal but I am able to purchase patterns from PR. Love!

Smashing idea and thank you for featuring this company. Are these the only patterns available through the Pattern Review Shop? I want to purchase the SB310-Top.

I like the concept of a pattern line catering to me - under 5'4":)

As a barely 5'4 on a good day gal... I am liking this concept! Thanks for thinking of a long neglected demographic!
