23 Fabulous and Free Plus Size Sewing Patterns

Finding cute and flattering clothing for plus sizes can be extremely difficult, especially because most stores have no idea how to design clothes for plus size women. We here at AllFreeSewing believe that clothing should make you feel empowered and that every woman should feel beautiful and comfortable in her own skin.

Don't settle for the small selection of clothes at the mall and design some stunning pieces for your wardrobe with our list of free plus size clothing patterns.

From trendy dresses that are guaranteed to show off your curves in style to everyday tops and skirts that will take you from work to a night out on the town, you can't go wrong with these 23 Fabulous and Free Plus Size Sewing Patterns and tutorials.

These elegant, fun and, most importantly, free patterns, are perfect for highlighting your best assets and will let you rock the hottest trends with style and confidence. Sew some clothes that are custom-made made for your body with these free clothing sewing patterns for plus size women.

We love the following patterns because even if they aren't necessarily modeled or made for plus sizes, they have the ability to be made larger without losing the effect they were designed to achieve. So pretty, so stylish, so you - no matter what size you are.

Plus size for women. I am thick around the waist and large stomach. I have large arms, fat across the back and thin legs. What kind of patterns do you suggest? I know tighter fitting clothes are more flattering but I'm not a fan. Can you add patterns that have elastic. Instructions for adding for large stomach would be awesome.

Great patterns but can we have some edgy/different toddler girl patterns age 2/3 cross back dresses etc.
