Exciting news : The Curvy Sewing Collective

Hi everyone,

You may have read about it on one of my fellow bloggers but I have very interesting news ! With a few other lovely curvy ladies, we have started up a sewing collective : The Curvy Sewing Collective !

As Tanya and Jenny already explained, this little group was formed after we all complained about not having one platform where we can share tips and anecdotes for Curvy Ladies. You know how passionate I am about the positive influence of sewing on body image and mental heath. I am also very interested in allowing yourself to wear whatever makes you feel pretty, quirky, and cute, if that's what you are into. We decided to share our passion. 

I am sure you have read at least one post from all of us.

Jenny @ Cashmerette is a British Expat in the US. She became an expert in wrap dresses and has posted so many awesome tips lately ! I loved her article on pattern companies and the sizing differences.

I have been following Mary @ Idle Fancy for a long while now. I am in love with her dreamy photo shoots and her beautiful dresses. Like many of us, I will admit that I am extremely jealous of her wonderful hair.

I discovered Tanya @ Mrs. Hughes a few weeks ago and I am having a lot of fun catching up on her past projects ! She makes me want to dive into Vintage sewing patterns and adopt a puppy ! Also, I love her eyewear !

I came across T's blog @ u&mii back in January when she pulled 10.000 Plantain versions out of her Mary Poppins bag. She has a crazy shoe collection and her photos are always so colorful !

Mary @ Young, Broke and Fabulous is the girl I wanted to be when I was in college ! She has pretty garments, glasses and hair. She also sews awesome cosplay outfits ! And she plays Quidditch !

This adventure has been great so far and we have very interesting projects going on. We just need a little bit of time before we can show you more. So far, there has been a LOT of great comments!

Isn't it exciting ???!!!
What do you all think about it ?


  1. I think YES about it that's what I think!! I'm watching with baited breath -- I already followed every blogger in the Collective and I can't wait to see what shakes out!

  2. I love it. I can't wait to see what you gals write about.

  3. It's been so great getting to know all of you guys! :)

  4. That is a great idea! I think there need to be more discussions involving the curvy contingent. I look forward to hearing more!

  5. Love it! I can't wait to see what your great collective brains come up with!

  6. As a plus size sewing beginner I can't wait for this! And thanks for introducing the other members, I'm looking forward to reading through their blogs.

  7. Congratulations! What a great collection of Curvy Ladies! I'm looking forward to hearing more about the CSC.

  8. I had recently found both your blog and that of Mary at Idle Fancy. I am so totally inspired seeing great clothing and what it might look like on me. I can quilt and make home things, but I have never been able to sew for myself because I couldn't find patterns to fit me and the only people who could teach me to sew couldn't adjust patterns.

    But...tonight, I bit the bullet and traced a pattern with adjustments for me and will be sewing together a muslin tomorrow (from a vintage sheet I picked up cheap). If it works, I will make an Easter dress for myself and have a cute little vintage dress for everyday wear.

    Thanks for the inspiration and for showing us the other collective members so we can check out their blogs, too!

  9. This is great! I'm a just beginning sewer who is plus size/curvy and I love this idea. Inspiration from beautiful women who share common sewing challenges!

  10. OMG I WANT IN. This is a fab idea, & I love everything about it. Thank you for doing this!

  11. I couldn't be more excited. I think it is a fantastic idea. I'm a curvy stitcher too! I'd love to join in. I am always on the lookout for patterns that are sized for and look flattering on my body.

  12. I love this! I would love to take part, too. It's great to see how patterns will look on fuller figures because it can be so different!

  13. How exciting. I love reading about patterns that suit my curvy figure. I can't wait to read more.
