Another busy week, and it’s only Monday! This week is exams week and so there is very little time for surfing and posting in the day. But finally the girls are off to bed and even though all I want to do is to kick back and watch Running Man ;P but duty calls, and I need to share my free pattern find of the day. Oh, and I also need to draft out some new patterns to finally get started on 4 flower girls dresses for my cousins wedding that’s happening in a month’s time! I have four different sizes to make!
Anyway, back to the free pattern find. Today’s free pattern is actually from an online patternshop called Patternshop Snowwing. Link and details after the jump.
Sorry for the late post. Today’s free pattern is from るんるんソーイング (Run Run sewing) http://sew-ing.com and it contains free patterns for babies, kids, adults, accessories, bags and even zakka! The homepage contains the list of projects and even though there are very few pictures on the homepage, you can use a browser translation tool to view the projects. There is also an English page, http://sew-ing.com/make/, and the projects linked from the English page also have translations in English!
Anybody needs a mermaid tail for Halloween? This is a rea life size tail – 180cm long. Scales are sewn on individually!
Most of the patterns are made out of simple geometric shapes (this one above is for a sweater – the one on the top right of the first picture)
Most of the instructions come with step by step pictures like this.
The website may not look like much at first glance because the home page is mainly text and very few pictures., but dig around and you can find lots of cute projects here. Happy Sewing! 🙂
Today’s free pattern link may prove to be immensely useful to some, but not of much use to others. Why do I say that? Well, I have been looking for free patterns on Men’s shirts but I’ve never come across one that is so professionally done (and free!). Most of the rest are for simple T-shirts, but this is a real shirt with collar and pockets and cuffs! However, there is only one size provided, and there doesn’t seem to be a complete set of instructions included. The pattern is provided in a multi-page PDF which means you will need to print the pieces out and piece it together like a puzzle. So given that it is one size only with no step by step pictures and no instructions, this may be useful only to those who have made a shirt before and are familiar with the steps in making a shirt. But just take a look at the resulting shirt! Doesn’t it look like it might be worth the effort? 😉
The free pattern is provided by a website called Atelier 服つくろ Atelierhukutsukuro . The description below the site name says 縫製工場で働く２児のパパのブログ ( Google translate says – “Dad’s blog of two children working in the garment factory”) Due to the difference in grammar between the Japanese and English language, I think the father works in the garment industry, and not the two children 😛 So it’s blog of a Father of two, who works in the garment industry.
Today’s free pattern is mostly about bags. Lovely lovely bags, made from beautiful fabrics with very practical designs. The free patterns are from a blog called こだわり出産・育児グッズ http://goods-baby-kids.seesaa.net/ The title actually means Childbirth and kids goods. Check out her free patterns + how-to make posts.
Today’s free patterns are from a site that sells PDF patterns, called Tamanegi-Kobo. They have patterns for both adults and kids, and there are even some PDF patterns in English! They sell to international customers but they do not ship the paper patterns internationally. So you will have to download the PDF patterns after purchase and piece them together.
There are some free patterns provided as well and although they look really simple, these are really useful everyday wear items and I must say that this is the first time I’ve come across free patterns for an under-dress, which I think is really useful if you are making a sheer dress and need a specific co-ordinating color for the under-dress. The tank top is also a simple shape which can be used as the basic bodice block and adapted for other garments as well.
