Want to get involved in the Curvy Sewing Collective?

Following hot on the heels of the Curvy Colette blog tour, the Curvy Sewing Collective have been working away on our next project, which we hope will be a great resource for the curvy sewing community!

Would you like to get involved? We’re looking for sewists and bloggers who are passionate about making clothes they feel fabulous in, regardless of size, and have something to share with the world! Do you have great reviews of indie patterns that work for curves? Styling tips? A fantastic tutorial that everyone could do with seeing? Something else that’s so amazing we haven’t even thought of it?!

Then get in touch! We already have some fantastic contributors, but we need more. Email me with yours ideas at jenny@curvysewingcollective.com.

  1. This is such a fabulous idea. I get a bit miserable seeing lots of lovely patterns that don’t go up to my size or that require so much grading it just isn’t worth it, only to make something and it is unwearable (due to design and not my sewing – at least that is what I keep telling myself). It would be nice to get the skinny *haha* on other people’s opinions about what was worth the effort for us curvy creatives. Would a pattern hack be appropriate? Does it have to be just indie patterns? x

    Email sent. I love what you’re all doing–I think that it’s a really important thing for women of all shapes and sizes to be seen and heard. I’d love to be involved.

    1. I’d love to get involved! I am probably the world’s most lackadaisical blogger, but getting involved and having a goal might get me inspired! Actually, I just got Stepalica’s Zlata skirt and had planned to make it in May for Indie month. I didn’t get to print it until June 5, though so I missed the deadline. I’d love to do some kind of blog series on sizing up the skirt (her sizes end at 44, and I need to go up to about 48) and sewing it up (all those pleats!).

      On the flip side, I’d also like to do a post/ series on taking an SBCC pattern and non-petite-ing it. I have the Mimosa top, and I’m taller than their draft.

    I”m more than a little tempted to throw my hat in the ring… I’m right on the cusp of plus size, and usually sew up the largest size (and tend to avoid companies that don’t make things big enough for me!) It pisses me off to be a completely average sized North American, and yet still be on the very cusp of what patterns allow for. How absurd! I’ll send ya an email… 🙂

    I’d love to join. I’ll send you an email.

  7. Great idea! Sent you an email.

  8. Emailed. I am excited for this. 🙂

  9. I am a straight-size (is that an okay way to phrase it? I feel like I’ve read it that way.) but I shared this in the sewing/creative blogger group I admin on facebook (and anyone reading is welcome to join the group, if they’d like: https://www.facebook.com/groups/581958468564878/ )

  10. I would love to learn more! I always have to take in my waist (with tops, dresses or bottoms) because I have to make the bigger sizes for my top & bottom . . . . and I’m learning to blog!

    Mostly I stick with princess seams, which work so well. I will be interested in seeing what you all come up with.

Let me know what you think!
