Burdastyle has been really good lately about putting out plus versions of new patterns. But what about older patterns? The current selection of plus patterns is very limited, and I’ve seen requests for plus versions of many of the older patterns. I think Burdastyle should go back to the most popular patterns and create plus versions. There is definitely a lack of pants and blouses/tops. I searched “plus” in the search box, out of the 11 actual plus size patterns (not including variations), 6 were dresses and 3 were coats/jackets. Not much to build a wardrobe from.
Is there a demand for plus versions of older patterns? Which ones?

      Janome is widely sold, and their Magnolia line has all the bells and whistles at a great starter price. Not the cheapest machine but one you won’t need to swap out because it does so much. As to serger, I like the Brother because it is a tested design and it’s widely available at a great price.

    I completely agree with wanting more plus size patterns. I’d also like to see more dresses with sleeves. It gets cold in some places…

    The average American woman is a size 14, so by definition Plus sized. It is annoying that I need to sew because I am so tall and I have wide shoulders but lo, patterns are even smaller than commercial clothing. Irritating. I look around and most women look bigger than me! But try to find patterns that are fashionable.
