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.
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 25+ Fabulous and Free Plus Size Sewing Patterns and tutorials.
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 blouse patterns, dress patterns, plus more tops and bottoms.
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.
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.
Many of these patterns and tutorials have a size range included. For those that don't, the designer includes details about adjusting the size and drafting a pattern that's for your specific measurements.
