Today's Pattern: Butterick 3039 and 4950
When I want to sew, I want to make something that is quick and easy because anything that is slow and detailed might take a year for me to make! I spent 6 weeks once making a lovely top with hand sewn facing, etc. and about my third time wearing it I got a bleach splash on the front that chewed holes into the fabric and I never could figure out a way to cover them up. After that fiasco and the time it takes for me to sew due to my physical problems, Butterick Sewing Pattern 4950 has become one of my favorite patterns to use for myself. I have lost track of the number of tops and skirts I have made off of my copy of the pattern. However, I only have one copy of Butterick 4950 left for sale but a customer reminded me today of a very similar pattern, that is Butterick Sewing Pattern 3039 . We still have copies of Butterick 3039 in all three size ranges so you can purchase it in sizes 16W-32W. If you want to make something fast these patterns will do the job for you. If you want to spend more time on a garment, I have seen patterns resembling the pullover top in many variations with different embellishments. The joy of sewing comes from your fabric choices, embellishments and colors you can always have a unique wardrobe suitable for any occasion.
These two patterns are just 2 of many that we sell in our Women's Plus Size department and we invite you to come and look if you haven't already here. For a shorter Plus size woman, we also have some rare, hard to find Half-size patterns here. Of course for any other kind of sewing pattern you can check our store Moonwishes Sewing and Crafts where we have over 8000 uncut sewing patterns in all sorts of sizes and styles. We also have many patterns that aren't yet listed and we would be more than happy to check for you to see if we have it. We do need the brand and number of the pattern and the type of garment as the major pattern companies repeat their pattern numbers about every 8-10 years. In the meantime enjoy your sewing!
