Tuesday 13 April 2021: Megan Green has been blogging about her sewing since 2009 and recently she updated her list of sewing pattern companies that cater to plus sized sewists.
Megan is a hydrologist by day, but spends most of her free time in the sewing room trying to create the perfect handmade wardrobe. She learned to sew from her mother (who learned to sew from her mother), but didn’t start sewing in earnest until 2012, shortly after she moved to New Mexico and found her plus size shopping options severely limited.
At that point she began sewing nearly all of her clothing and never looked back. As a self-described fitting nerd, she teaches classes in northern New Mexico, with the intent of helping folks of every size make beautiful fitting and comfortable clothing. She is currently working towards a Certificate in Fashion Design and has completed coursework in pattern drafting.
When she is not sewing, she can be found endlessly redecorating her mid-century home, hanging out with her tiny pack of tiny dogs, skiing or rafting (depending on the season), and seeking out the best hot springs in the Southwestern US.
