Some of the best stuff in life is free…
I am pleased to share with you my links for amazing free sewing patterns. Some of them are in French, Portuguese, Spanish and most of them in English. With Google Translate, we can all sew with these patterns!
A French website that is proud to sell locally-sourced and locally-sewn jeans. They sell the three different styles of jeans and they are kindly giving away the sewing patterns to make them yourself.
The 201BRU13 is a straight-leg jeans.
The 202BRU13 is a bootcut jeans.
The 101BRU13 is a straight-leg jeans for men.
A sewing allowance is not included in these patterns. Neither are the sewing instructions. However, if you have a little bit of energy, you can Google how to sew jeans and you’ll be on your way.
One of my favorite sewing instructor is Angela Wolfe. Her website is filled everything that you need to achieve professional results when sewing jeans!
Sleeveless tops (two variations):
The Tate top comes in two versions. It is the ultimate top in my book as it is very flattering and a cinch to make. The pattern is from Jen of Workroom Social in New York. Their blog is pretty interesting too! Take a look.
Tops, jacket, dress and pants:
Spit up & Stilettos is a fantastic website. The designer behind this line has redirected her energy to designing for kids. She is ultimately the nicest designer to allow us to use her women’s patterns for free. Take a look at her children’s line of patterns. They are just too cute!
Sorbetto by Colette Patterns is a classic! It is a very simple but beautiful top. Colette Patterns are full of feminine designs with a retro flair.
Sacotin is a French website. They have two styles of bag patterns to download for free.
Dresses, jackets, jumpsuits and tops:
Avantages is a French magazine and they offer free sewing patterns on the do-it-yourself section of their website. Their designs are pretty easy to sew. Style wise, they remind me a bit of Burda.
Swimsuits, basic slopers and just about anything:
Ralph Pink is a very creative soul and talented designer that offers swimsuits, corsets, culottes, rompers, basic slopers (pants, tops, dress). Although I do not use slopers, I know that they are very useful for making your own patterns.
Dresses, accessories and baby clothes:
This blog is in Spanish and is pretty easy to understand. She is talented in sewing and knitting. I love her sense of style!
Dresses, jackets, skirts and jumpsuits:
Manequim magazine is a Brazilian magazine and they offer many different sewing patterns for free on their website. The website is in Portuguese and the patterns only come in one size. You can be lucky to find something you like in your size. Again, you might Google translate the instructions or ask a Portuguese friend to help you out!
Barb pants from Style Arc is a classic pull-on style of pants that has been offered for free upon subscription to the website’s mailing list. They will offer you three sizes (if you are in between sizes, this is great!).
Style Arc is an Australian pattern company that I absolutely adore. They have so many great styles to choose from. Their design team is very talented. Can you tell that I am a huge fan?
Maria of Denmark is a talented Danish designer that sells sewing patterns and books. Once you have subscribed to her newsletter, you will get a link to get a free kimono t-shirt. A basic loose-fitting t-shirt that is easy to sew. The perfect t-shirt in my book!
Deer & Doe Plantain t-shirt. Really cute and easy to make. You need to register (free) to get the free pattern.
Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick Tonic t-shirt. Another nice and simple t-shirt pattern. Add it to your cart and check out. Since it is free, they will only ask you for your information but no credit cards. The file will then be sent to the email address you provided.
For the men in our lives:
Joost de Cock is from Belgium and offers men’s patterns on his website Make My Pattern. Last time I checked, he had patterns for a shirt, a hoodie, two types of pants, a boxer brief and a tie.
