I’m collecting links to free patterns and will post them here. Assume that I have NOT tested these patterns unless I state otherwise.
If you have experience with a pattern, please contact me or make a note in comments and I’ll update the information or make a note.
Update – 30 April 2022 – For #sewfrugal22 I posted a video that focuses on free patterns from Canadian 🇨🇦 designers. Here is a link to the video, but I’m also noting the patterns below. If you have made any of these patterns, please drop a comment to share your experience!
Free patterns are an excellent way to be introduced to independent pattern designers. Through researching these patterns, I’ve found at least a few new-to-me designers that I will buy patterns from in the future. Please consider supporting these small businesses!
🧵 Elbe Textiles: Sage Tee – Men’s relaxed fit t-shirt with crew neck and short sleeves. (Pattern suggested by a member of Pattern Review)
🧵 The Craft of Clothes: Unisex Scrubs – Blogger Liz Heywood provides free instructions for unisex scrubs, and apparently they are almost zero waste! (Pattern suggested by a member of Pattern Review)
🧵 Lekala offers a free pattern for men’s short sleeved top with front zip. Pattern 6056 (Pattern suggested by a member of Pattern Review)

💋 Ensemble Patterns | Greco T-Shirt 🇨🇦 – I made this top and reviewed it on my YouTube channel. It’s a slouchy t-shirt pattern with excellent instructions and a great little feature – a binding on the shoulders and back neck edge that results in a very professional garment.
💋 Helen’s Closet | Luna Tank 🇨🇦
💋 Jalie Patterns | Èmilie Square Roll-neck top 🇨🇦 – I have made this top twice. It’s an excellent choice for a quick, cold weather sweater.
