Plus-Sized Pattern Pyramid Power!


Last month the Beautiful Beverley (aka Bea Jay) of On The Road To Sew Wear launched a Pattern Pyramid giveaway just like Karen's only Bigger and Better--this one's for Misses of Massive Magnificence! Funnygrrl of Falling Through Your Clothes and Lisa of Sew On And Sew On were Beverley's first two winners, and I am pleased to be the third! (The deadline for Lisa's giveaway seems to have passed, but Funnygrrl's goes on until March 3.)

Here is my haul:

Plus this one, which I'm keeping and making of the organic red cotton knit on which it is reclining:

And here are my contributions to the pyramid:

THE RULES (As copied - and slightly amended - from Did You Make That)
Anyone, anywhere can enter the giveaway by posting a comment below by midnight US Pacific Standard Time Sunday March 3 BUT you must have an active blog. (Reasons to become obvious.)
I will randomly select 2 winners.
I will post a random selection of 4 or 5 patterns to each winner. Each winner will pick one pattern to keep for themselves, then host their own giveaway. They will randomly select a winner, post the remaining patterns to that Person C. Person C will pick a pattern for themselves, host their own giveaway and post the remaining patterns to the winner, Person D. Person D will…
All patterns are in the plus size category - ie - if the pattern comes in 2 sizing groups, then it will be the larger category. Patterns to go up to at least go up to a size 20 (most go higher). Patterns listed as "all sizes" will include plus sizes.
If you wish to take more than one pattern you can replenish the stock with a pattern you no longer want - but please make sure it is in plus size range
You get the idea!

We are taking it on trust that all pattern pieces are there.
If you’re a winner, Beverley would love it if you could make a small contribution to The Brooke. This is a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided the original patterns. These plus sized patterns have been contributed by Catherine, Beverley and me in the spirit of the generosity of the sewing community
Please engage in a timely fashion, launching your own giveaways soon after receiving a parcel
You must be be happy to post patterns worldwide.

Thank you Beverley, and let the comments commence!


  1. Ok, so my blog is not as active as it should be, but do have one....Have patterns I'd like to contribute to the pyramid....

  2. Should? There is no should in blogging, only whatever makes you happy. How did the move go?

    1. It hasn't happened yet...too busy with work to finish all I have to do to my condo to get it sellable...aiming for late spring now...

  3. Sign me up! I think this is such a great idea! The possibility of free patterns... plus I'm find all sorts of new plus size sewing bloggers that are providing me with tons of inspiration. yay!

  4. What a fun idea! I'd love to participate. I've got some goodies to give away, and I see a couple I could use. Thanks to Bea Jay for starting this pyramid!

  5. Thanks for the plug! I will mention your Pyramid on my blog too. I lengthened the deadline for mine just because I'm so busy. And gives more time for people to find it!

    Don't put me in the draw. Just stopping by to read up and thank you!

  6. Ok. I'm in because I sew for others and they have curves that give me the sort of sewing challenge that I actually enjoy!
