New patterns from SBBC patterns
SBBC aka Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick patterns are especially for petites. Betsy is the pattern maker behind this brand and recognised the need for more patterns as she’s always been the
smallest size on the rack! She understands that its not just about making garments shorter,
its about getting the right proportions too. SBBC has just launched two wardrobe staples styles
The Cabernet Cardigan
You can never have too much of a good thing, especially if it is a classic. The Cabernet Cardigan is perfectly proportioned for a petite torso so you don’t look like you’re wearing your guy’s cardigan!
It comes in three different silhouettes: long and boxy, short and boxy, and short and shrunken for a fitted look. Its the perfect opportunity to give sewing with sweater knits a try, but also looks fab in Ponte knit. Cabernet Cardigan pattern is priced at $12 for PDF download and $17 for a printed pattern.
The Pinot Pants
Once you have a pair of trousers like the Pinot Pants it’s all you’ll want to wear! These are elasticised and pull-on, but unlike the ones that get all bunchy at the waist and add 10+ pounds. These are flat against the waist, fitted through the hips and thighs, and flare out ever so slightly at the bottom hem so they can be worn with practically any kind of shoe from ballet flats or tennis shoes that you throw on to walk the dog.
Since Petite height can vary, there are five different inseam lengths are included in sizing options. Pinot Pants pattern is priced at $10 for PDF download and $15 for a printed pattern.
