Black owned sewing pattern companies

I blog a good amount about plus size sewing and plus size fashion, and toda I wanted to give a specific spotlight to Black owned sewing pattern companies, as well as collaborations that larger companies have done with Black creators.

I’ve also noted the size range // top measurements of the largest size for these pattern companies, for my fellow plus size babes!

Welcome to 2020

As people in 2020, one of the most powerful things we do to create change and support marginalized people is by committing to use our DOLLARS to support Black owned businesses.

Note: I found these companies though resourcing on Facebook groups and Google. If I have made an error, please let me know through my contact page. I so apologize!

Here are 7 Black-owned sewing pattern companies to check out!

Black Sewing Pattern Company #2: Style Sew Me

Eryn is the founder of Style Sew Me, and she’s based in Dallas, Texas.

On her patterns: “While I loved seeing other makers’ pieces from other patterns, I didn’t feel like my style was captured well in what was already out there.

A reflection of my vision of a versatile, comfortable, and stylish wardrobe took form in my Style Sew Me pattern collection, where I aim to provide patterns that are straight forward, versatile, and flattering for all body types.”
