It doesn’t matter if you’re a brand new sewist or just looking to add a quick and easy piece to your wardrobe; these free and easy patterns have got your back (you can thank us later). We suggest using 100% cotton or a fabric with a heavy cotton content. It usually has little to no stretch, making it easy to both cut and sew.

Add a flirty piece to your collection!
The overall design here is simple but a few steps to be aware of are: applying the invisible zipper, the optional lining, and creating the 2 darts on either the front or back of the skirt. We’ve chosen a canvas fabric but chambray would bring an easy breezy vibe to this pattern.
The back is where it’s at with this one!
The overall design here is simple but a few steps to be aware of are: the back neckline has a slight plunge that’s complete with strips of trim that connect from one side to the other, it also requires web bonding and interfacing around the neckline. Try making your own tunic from rayon batiste.
An intermediate sewist is generally comfortable with sewing and applying most of the details in moderation, whether it be a trim or closure like a zipper, toggle, or hook and eye. They can also sew with fabrics that are a bit more slippery or stretchy when sewing, cutting, or pinning pattern pieces like lame, laminated fabrics, linings, tulle, and tech fabrics.
Workout in style or change up the fabric to wear this garment anywhere.
Note the tricky stuff: this garment includes snap tape, a keyhole detail at its back, front panels to create a cutout, a collar, and a Velcro closure to secure the collar at the back. Try your hand at making this bodysuit using a double knit.
Stay ultra trendy with this bow-tiful blouse.
Note the tricky stuff: this blouse includes bust darts, faux placket folds, bias tape to clean up armhole edges, a necktie attached to the neckline, sleeve cuffs, and buttons down the center front. This blouse would look stunning in a silk charmeuse.
These pants are a home run, look stylish while feeling just as good.
Note the tricky stuff: these pants feature front patch pockets, back faux welt pockets, a waistband and casing for the elastic used, leg cuffs, a belt, and additional belt loops (if desired) to attach it. Show us what you’re working with by using hemp denim to make your own pair of Primrose Pants.
Sewists at the advanced level thrive when faced with a more difficult garment, spending a lot of their construction time applying appliques, trim, and all of the other details that takes a garment from standard to extravagant. Advanced sewists produce couture style garments and aren’t afraid to tango with the fussiest of fabrics like burnouts, embroidered fabrics, faux fabrics, lace, lame, mesh, and novelty varieties.
The details here make this robe couture-worthy.
Sew two waist darts at the back and a godet panel as well, add the lapel, include an optional brooch around the waist band, attach a button and elastic loop closure at back and complete the garment with the trim of your choice along the flowing sleeves and hemline. Adding the trim and addressing the hemline will eat up most of your construction time with this one. Try your hand at making this using polyester shantung.
Achieve boss babe status with the Eurya Dress!
Here’s the tricky stuff: this dress includes waist darts along the skirt front and back, a princess seam, diagonally added elastic trim, princess seams lined in trim, a cape attached at the back, and an invisible zipper. We think it would also look great in organza brocade.
Here’s the trench of your dreams!
The tricky stuff includes: a lining, rainguard, front darts, pleated sleeves, arm cuffs, lined front pockets, buttons and buttonholes, a belt with eyelets, and a belt buckle as well as belt loops. Make it out of wool tweed to really elevate your garment!
With this suit you’ll be set- literally.
The tricky stuff includes: an interfaced lapel and welted pockets, back darts, simultaneous neckline and shoulder construction, buttons and trim along the top of the pocket for the blazer. The pants have pockets with facing, a waistband with interfacing, and an invisible zipper. Provide a more polished look by using wool-cotton tweed instead.
