Free PDF patterns for you

There are so many indy pattern companies looking to catch your interest.  I occasionally find some gems, and hope you do too in the list below:

Perfect Beach dress from So Sew Easy

The Nyssa dress  from Mood Fabrics

Free patterns from pattern easy

The drop sleeve top from The Avid Seamstress-free when you sign up for their newsletter.

The Ruffle Sleeve top from Peppermint Magazine, which offers info and free patterns.
Boxy topVariety of patterns also from Peppermint Magazine.

A variety of craft pattern pieces and a shift dress is found at Made To Sew

Athina Top from Tessuti Fabrics

Some really cute patterns at Itch to Stitch and her downloads are so easy to work with!  I have this pattern for a knit skirt---->

As soon as I finish the 2 blouses I am working on, I plan to make do some printing and taping :-)  
Here is what is in my studio right now:  

 I have this pinned together trying to decide if I like the combination of fabrics I chose.  While the solid linen is very heavy and coarse, I think I can finesse the neckline notch if I am careful.  I love the little pocket which will be perfect for carrot treats. 

The McCall's pattern on the left is a wrap blouse and we all know how pretty they are to look at and how hard to wear.  I have extra ties cut out and ready to install, as well as snaps. :-) 

Happy summer sewing!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing these patterns.. Some really cute ones.. I need to go and buy some more ink... and get to printing/taping..
    Happy sewing.

  2. You're welcome Judy. Free is good!

  3. Some nice patterns and companies there Mary! Thank you for compiling and passing them on. Are you liking the cut on sleeve on that McCalls pattern?

    1. It is still on my dressform. I will do a review in a few days when I finish it. I like it so far.

  4. Thanks for the links Mary. I agree about Itch to Stitch. Her patterns just seem to fit me with not much alteration which is a very pleasant change for me. I also love that you only have to print the size(s) you want.

    Not many people look for pockets big enough for carrrots. Perhaps designers should think more about that. ��

    1. Itch to Stitch is at the top of my fave list lately. As for treat pockets, I always find a way to add them to my "barn shirts".

  5. Oh yes, you must have carrot treat pockets! What a great round up of free patterns. Glad you are back with us sewing - your last twelve months have been not so easy for you.

    1. Hi Sarah Liz! I have been scouring the internet for freebies, and new pattern companies. I am starting to see the same patterns over and over and over.


I love your comments and enjoy the conversation that results.
