Welcome to the Curvy Pattern Database! The CPD started with a spreadsheet I kept for myself. It had a list of designers that made patterns large enough to make beautiful clothing for my body – including my 59 inch (150 cm) hips. With help from others in the curvy sewing community I expanded my list and have been able to turn it into this sharable website. I hope this list can be a resource for you in your sewing journey.
All of the designers included in my database have patterns that fit at least a 56 inch (142cm) hip, because curvy is not a niche. The pattern finder (in development) is a way to find inclusive patterns using filters and categories. And, on the blog, I post a monthly roundup of recently released or re-released patterns that meet the database requirements.
If you are a designer who would like to be included in database please contact me at email@example.com. I also (of course!) welcome community contributions to the database – if you see missing information please let me know!
