When I first suggested a free for all as a theme, Jen laughed at me and said I was spiraling. And then I explained that the idea was simply to show use free patterns. There's loads out there and many are great! Maybe you have a favorite that has become a tried and true. Maybe it's time to try some new ones. Maybe you've already downloaded or even printed them out. Sew them! Share them. We love being sewcial with you.
I've got a couple of suggestions to get you started if you need a jumping off point (because pinterest is bananas anymore and I'm not going to suggest you go down that broken rabbit hole)-
A peplum, wide leg pants, a boxy top (first on my list), a jumpsuit AND MANY MORE. All free.
You'll find a whole collection of free patterns in the Dropbox album linked in the post! I've only tried Diana (I don't even like spaghetti straps but I'm gonna make a not-an-Ogden-cami anyway), but there's plenty of free sewing opportunities here. (Thanks, Gwyn, for finding this treasure trove.)
Over a dozen simple freebies here.
After I started this post, Gwyn also shared Robynne's "Complete list of almost free patterns." The list is now maintained on her blog and it's a pretty comprehensive list of the patterns offered by indie designers for free in exchange for joining their facebook group.
I hope you enjoy your summer, folks! Hopefully you can splurge on extra fabric since you've saved some dollars by working with free patterns. :)
