A lot of times, I’ll look online for free sewing patterns, and there really isn’t much there that’s free that looks very…stylish. A lot of times things are kind of outdated, and you really have to scour the internet to find patterns you like.
So, I’ve done the searching for you!
I’ve decided to do this series of blog posts so that you can try out some free patterns that you’ll actually wear and enjoy! Many of these patterns are from smaller companies that have many more patterns to choose from, so if you like one of these patterns, help support them and purchase one of their other patterns! 🙂
This pattern by Heather Handmade is for a below-the-knee, A-line skirt. It has an elastic back and is an easy pattern to make.
Another pattern by Heather Handmade, this skirt pattern uses knit fabrics, which makes it super simple to make. It looks super comfortable too, which is always a plus!
I love this website in general because there are a ton of different tutorials on sewing clothes. All of the instructions are very easy to follow and straightforward. This pattern only uses two pieces of fabric, and it’s definitely ideal for beginner sewers! There is also a video tutorial that goes along with it which I always find incredibly helpful.
These types of skirts are very in right now, but you can easily make this skirt pattern from jeans! I like to try and recycle material and clothing as much as I can, and it is also nice to not have to entirely sew this skirt from scratch!
