10 Pear Shaped Friendly Sewing Patterns for Women

Being pear shaped can be awesome if the right clothes are worn to flatter certain parts. Often on the pear shaped woman it is common to flatter the chest area because it is smaller on that body type and draws as less attention to the behind as possible.

Well to break that cycle I’ve found 5 Sewing Patterns that flatter ALL of the Pear Shaped woman’s body and not just one part. For some of these patterns you’ll still have to grade to fit your hip size, but pay ample attention to the finished garment size to see the ease, this will help avoid any unnecessary grading.

Here we go!

10 Patterns for the Pear Shaped Woman

1. The Katie by Mimi G

A modern high low play on the classic shirtdress, the Katie pattern is a beautiful combination of elegance and simplicity. This pattern definitely fits the Pear Shaped figure well giving great definition to the chest while flattering the backside for a flowing and easy look.

2. McCall’s 7813

This skirt patterns fold over waist and belt accessory makes it the perfect staple in a pear’s closet. Tuck in t shirts or tanks or a shirtdress for a defined waist, or wear a cropped top and show off your figure.

3. Simplicity 8735

Wrap dresses are always perfect for pears and all these views are no exception, but I’m focusing on view D for this pattern. With its long sleeves and drapey bottom it fully complements a pears figure while also giving a very slimming effect.

4. Ogden Cami by True Bias

The Ogden Cami is so versatile. Wear it alone with some skinny jeans or tuck it into your favorite skirt or high waisted pair of pants. Because of the v neckline it accents the chest and makes it look fuller, but also has a flattering back too for hot days.

5. Simplicity 8516 OR 8222 both by Mimi G

Both of these jean patterns give options for the slimmer or curvier woman. The darts and the hip curves also give wiggle room for comfort and modifications that may be needed for the perfect skinny jean fit.

6. Hollyburn Skirt by Sewaholic Patterns

This simple circle skirt comes equipped with pockets and belt loops. Add a belt to the already defining waist band for aesthetics, or keep it simple. This skirt can be paired with pretty much anything.

7. Madison Cardigan by Style Sew Me

This cardigan reminds me of waterfalls when I see it. The cascading features on the front panels accent the chest and waist while the flowy back gives comfort and ease for the behind. The sleeves are an added bonus making this cardigan a must have for your me made closet.

8. Burnside Bibs by Sew House Seven

I chose this pattern because of the versatility. The front bib gives attention to the chest, while the pants give a flattering view of the behind. You can pair this with tank tops, t shirts or the like to create whatever effect you want.

9. Orsola Dress and Skirt by By Hand London

The Orsola has a defining waistband, and a flattering shape for a pear. The fit of the dress has an easy bodice, perfected for the small chested woman, while the skirt has a natural and easy looser fit for comfort, providing the best combination for a pear shape.

10. Bruyere Top by Deer and Doe Patterns

Once you see this top you already know why it’s made for a pear. The cinched in waist and waistband make it so pleasing to the eye and nice to look at. The sleeveless option definitely accents the bust and top frame. This top is versatile too and can be paired with a tank or tee underneath and buttoned or unbuttoned.
