About

Welcome to Tuesday Stitches, where every day is another chance to play dress up. Whoever you are, you're welcome here. We publish patterns to empower you to play Every Day Dress Up. Whether that means leggings and a t-shirt or a silver lamé party dress, we believe everyone should be able to decide what "dress up" means for themselves and that they should feel confident and beautiful every day in their own skin doing so. (Read more about our Mission.)

Our patterns make it easy for you to make clothes for Every Day Dress Up by emphasizing:

Inclusivity

  • Sizes 0-24

    All our patterns span a waist of 25″- 45″ (63.5 cm to 114 cm) and a hip of 35″ to 55″ (89 cm to 139.5 cm)

  • Cup Sizes A - F

    All our patterns include cup sizes A through F so the SBA (small bust adjustment) or FBA (full bust adjustment) are already done for you.

  • Multiple Lengths

    Many of our patterns come in multiple length options such as short, average, and tall.

  • Sizing and Fit Made Easy

    All our patterns include information on how to best choose a size for that pattern and have sewalongs on our blog that explain common fit adjustments for all sorts of different bodies.

Representation

  • Models Like You

    Our cover models are illustrated from our volunteer pattern testers. Whoever you are, we want you to see yourself in our models since your unique beauty is just as beautiful as anyone else. You, too, should be a model!

  • Increased Visibility

    We make a concerted effort to increase visibility of sewists who have a variety of identities and backgrounds including, but not limited to, people of color, LGBTQ, disabled, plus size, and mature sewists.

Easy Sewing

  • Comprehensive Instructions

    Erin’s background as a biochemist shows through in our obsessively detailed pattern instructions. If you’re not an expert sewist already, all you need is a little self-confidence (and we’re all about self-confidence here!).

  • Additional Support

    You are why we do this! If you have any questions while sewing we want you to reach out to us and we’ll support you the best we can. You can always email us at help@TuesdayStitches.com or @ or DM us on Instagram at @TuesdayStitches

Erin Weisbart
I’m Erin Weisbart. You might know me as SeamstressErin.  I love bright colors, giant flowers and things that sparkle. I'm an obsessed sewist, tattooed knitter, cat herder, and mad scientist. I design and publish Tuesday Stitches patterns from Vashon, a small island off of Seattle, where I live with my partner, toddler, and three cats. You can learn more about my personal style by peeking through my closet.

I've sewn as long as I can remember and started making most of my clothes as a young teen when I grew too tall to fit clothing off the rack. I learned the "right way" to draft and sew as a costume design major in college and somehow ended up graduating with a biochemistry major instead. I followed science through a Ph.D. (lemme know if you've got any burning questions about the cell biology of fat metabolism) and came back to my first love of sewing by launching SeamstressErin Designs which graduated into Tuesday Stitches.

I also run Maternity Sewing: Your Source for Maternity and Nursing Sewing Patterns with my friend and business partner, Lisa Kievits. If you or someone you sew for is pregnant, nursing, or planning to be in the future, pop on by!
