Carve out some quality time with your machine, and get stitching on these fabulous free sewing patterns!
For this pattern hack, I cut out only the blouse pieces of the Heather Dress and went without the skirt. Blouses don’t often require a lining, making this project even quicker. Stitch the blouse according to the original instructions. For the neckline, I bound it with self-made bias tape. You can also quickly draft a facing or finish with an accented trim. In order to pull it on without a closure, I widened the neckline about an inch to accommodate for the head. It took me less than a day to whip up this quick and easy pattern hack!
The Bucket Hat has quickly become one of our favorite free sewing patterns! Super simple, chic, and requiring very little fabric, it’s the perfect summer weekend project. Stitch it up in a day, and take it along for a beach trip or city date!
A spin on the classic T-shirt, the Dill Dress is simple to sew and even easier to style. Wear it as-is out of a rayon-linen blend, or try it belted, paired with combat boots, an oversized hat, and a designer dress.
Sweet, sensual, and effortless, we picture the Wilder Top over a simple cami, or as-is with a pair of jeans. Plus, it works well with a variety of fabrics, meaning it’s the perfect stash-buster. Try tulle, voile, or a Swiss dot.
Everyone needs a go-to pair of comfy pants. Luckily, the Linda Pants are a perfect option! With a classic tailored silhouette, they’re super-simple to make and ideal for beginners or those strapped for time. For the summer, why not hack them into a pair of cuffed shorts?
