Fitting pants for the Curvy Sewing Collective

You may have seen a bit of a blogger buzz about a new website called The Curvy Sewing Collective. Its a new website ran by a great group of sewing bloggers with pattern reviews, fitting advice and general sewing and confidence advice, aimed at a plus size body shape.

I've written a few posts for the site now, mostly focussing on fitting and sewing the Fehr Trade Duathlon leggings.

Activewear 101: Patterns and Fabric

Activewear 101: Leggings 1- Fitting

Activewear 101: Leggings 2 - Pattern adjustments

Activewear 101: Leggings 3 - Sewing

The site is skewed towards more curvier sizes but I do think a fitting adjustment is the same no matter what your size. So please check it out and hopefully you might find some of the articles helpful next time you are doing a fitting.


  1. Thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware of it. I'll head over now! Being very pear shaped- fitting is so hard on my lower half!

  2. This site is so overdue. I am so glad it is happening and I wish it lots of success. With continued posts like yours it will definitely be around for a long time.

  3. I'm enjoying your posts! Pants can be so intimidating! Leggings are a great place to start.

  4. Such a great website initiative :)
