My cousin sent me a link to this blog of free patterns the author has tested & approves of. Some pretty great stuff actually.
I need some work clothes & have a bunch of organic bamboo knits from a friends store and yards of linen salvaged from a duvet cover that irreparably tore. Considering the Uvita Top by Itch to Stitch, Geo Tank by Misusu Patterns, In The Folds Vintage Style Skirt (with pockets!) is super cute, Pocket Skirt by Paper Theory is also very sweet, Sew House Seven’s Elemental Pencil Skirt, Fibremood’s Charlotte Wrap Dress, and the Allspice Apron by Hey June.
There are even links to undies, slipper boots, etc, & a list of further resources.
Do you have favourite free pattern resources to share? Sometimes you get what you pay for with those freebies so recommendations to tested patterns are very helpful.
Not at all, lol. I printed out & taped the pages together for the Allspice Apron & contacted a local place that prints large patterns so I don’t have to tape pages for anything else, ha. But that’s all. Life is so busy.
I’m not a singular project person, but I have many projects that have not been finished for years (My quilt being the longest one, I have moved twice since then).
But , living in a small place and having pretty stuff in part completion is frustrating. But there are some projects that could be quicker wins - at the cost of not getting the WIPs done. Some of which wouldn’t take that long.
(Linda -2023 is a use the good stuff year! :us:)
One of the reasons I haven’t made more clothing is that I just don’t want to tape together all the pieces of paper. Is it costly to have a print shop do this? I mean, the patterns themselves are fairly cheap, $3-$5…
