Verity Plus Size Range XL-8X Now Available

verity-xl-8x-announcementThe plus size range of the Verity pattern is now available! I received some wonderful feedback from testers, and I made some improvements that I hope will make this a pattern that people love to use and reuse. I will have a post with pictures from some lovely testers soon.

This pattern can be used to make a dress or a shirt, with sleeves or without, and it has several collar options: split cowl, regular cowl, neckband, and now a Peter Pan collar add-on. The Peter Pan collar add-on is included for free with every purchase of this pattern for a limited time. For more details and photos of the pattern variations, please see this page.

Some notes about the pattern:

– All sizes are graded out from a sample block (size 4X) that was drafted specifically for a plus size figure.

– The pattern is drafted for C-D pattern cup size (3″-4″ difference between high bust and full bust) and a height of 5’6″.

– If you are between sizes, I would suggest going with the smaller size if you prefer a more fitted look.

-If you are shorter than or taller than 5’6″, you may need to shorten or lengthen the pattern pieces accordingly. However, everyone’s body is different, so you might be 5’6″ but have a short torso, for example, or 5’4″ with a long torso. There is a detailed pattern piece measurement chart included in the instructions. This should help you know what adjustments will need to be made for your height, etc. The measurement chart also includes armhole and bicep measurements. I include those measurements for ease of pattern adjustments.

Verity Knit Dress and Shirt Pattern Now Available

IMG_8940(2)The day is finally here! It’s time to introduce the Verity dress and shirt pattern to the world. I guess I was off by about a week for the estimated release, but better late than never.

Everything had to be just right. So, I had to add more details, double and triple (and quadruple ;)) check measurements and instructions, and work out a few more kinks than I originally anticipated.

The pattern and instructions come in PDF form. You will receive a tiled version (Letter &A4 format) and copy shop version of the pattern (36×80 for large format printers).

The instruction document provides cutting layouts, detailed assembly instructions with photos, short and sweet versions of instructions for experienced sewers, sewing tips and suggestions, a detailed pattern measurement breakdown and metric conversions of the measurement chart. Continue reading
