At VJ Seamsters we make vintage inspired patterns for the curvy 'apple shaped' woman.
As well as flattering the curvy form, we create patterns which we consider 'contemporary classics': styles that don't date quickly and can be easily customised and adapted to your shape.
When choosing a style, check its sizing spec before you buy, so that you can gauge how much ease the style allows. Remember, some styles are more shaped and fitted than others so the amount of ease often differs from pattern to pattern.
