About Petite Plus

Kathleen CheethamHello, my name is Kathleen Cheetham. My goal is to help petite plus women wear the clothes they always wanted to wear!

As a petite plus woman I know we have been "making do" for too long with tugging, gaping, baggy, out of proportion clothes.

Sewing patterns are not much help either. Up to now they've been designed for tall figures with broad shoulders and B cup bras. To alter one of these patterns can make you crazy!

Let me tell you about Petite Plus Patterns®

Petite Plus Patterns® are designed especially for the woman with narrow shoulders, D cup bra, rounded tummy, and delicious full curves everywhere!

The "Look" is classic - basics with clean lines to dress up or down with your choice of fabric and accessories. Many styles are excellent candidates for machine embroidery and fabric arts.

A quote from The StyleMaker, Holiday 1998
(A ClothesLine For The "Plus-Sized" Woman and Teen)

"Designer, pattern-maker, and fit specialist, Kathleen Cheetham says that one customer woefully under-served is the petite-plus - the 5'2" full figured woman."

"...Kathleen helps you "Celebrate Your Curves" with pattern styles that reflect today's fashion, while allowing just the right amount of ease and drape necessary to flatter your figure."

Have you ever put your heart and soul into a project only to find you can't wear it because it fits so badly?

Without a nice fit a garment looks awful!

We all have some fitting challenge to give us trouble. Yours might be an extra full (or flat) bust, tummy, or bum; or a funny little hump or flat spot.

In my custom clothing business I have seen lots of these special fit challenges.

That's why I wrote The Perfect Fit Guide® for each pattern.

A few tricks of the trade and you'll look like a million bucks!

The Perfect Fit Guide® makes your fitting challenge simple to custom fit!

Treat yourself to a new wardrobe with the help of Petite Plus Patterns®!

I hope you'll enjoy sewing with Petite Plus Patterns as much as I enjoy designing them for you. Watch for new styles coming soon!
