Ever wanted to draft your own stylish plus size outfits? Those boho type bat-wing sleeves, made from light and inelastic fabric like cottons or silks that swing around when you move. You can go really loose and sassy in these but still look trendy. Take a look at this plus size sewing pattern xD

Note: This sewing pattern is for all-size, take your measurements and draft. You can make a tunic tops or dress with this oversized tunic pattern, just choose your length.

  • As you decide to make a tunic top, pair it with leggings, skinny jeans, cut-off denim shorts… even narrow pencil skirts would fit. If you’re into asymmetrical or handkerchief hem just draft a really wide top ( increase the bottom’s width ).

  • Love to have a plus size tunic dress? Simply increase the length when you draft. Try it with an elastic belt or empire waist style ( I’ve found out overized oufits with a proper belt, deep neckline and heels look nice on petite plus size )
