I'm passionate about encouraging more plus size women to get sewing and blogging, so I thought one helpful first step might be to let everyone know which patterns could fit them. Now bear in mind, all patterns are alterable - the most common one for me, a Full Bust Adjustment, can add multiple inches onto the measurement of any patterns, and there are others specifically for the waist and hips. However, you need to know where you start.

So, I've put together a chart of most of the major pattern companies, which sizes they cover, and indeed what measurements are linked to those sizes - as you'll see very quickly, it's extremely variable!

You can view the charts here: http://cashmerette.blogspot.com/2014/03/one-stop-guide-to-sewing-pattern-sizes.html
