One reason many of us turn to sewing is the chance to make clothes that actually fit our shape instead of us trying to align our figure with the high-street’s ‘one shape fits all’ approach. Simple Sew aims to make sewing inclusive and that’s why most of the patterns on our site range from UK size 6-22, with the aim of offering a greater size range in the near future. In this post, ‘Celebrating Curves with Simple Sew’, we’ve listed a selection of our favourite patterns that offer a wide size range. You’ll find all these gorgeous designs on our website.
Simple Sew Lena Wrap Dress
