You want a good freebie:
This one is pretty nice, too
I am curious why so many really simple Independent patterns are priced the way they are.
Maybe other countries don't have club prices or Joann's for cheap patterns, but I'll be honest,
a pattern has got to rock my world for me to spend over $10 USD on it.
I need it to come to my house, open up and cut itself.
The ones I am fondest of, the ones I make over and over again and have bought more than one, more than once. The ones I foist on others, insisting: NO, really, this one is genius....
The Tiramisu from Sewing Cake
It's all there on the envelope. It's just four pieces.
Why this fits EVERY BODY like a dream, well, lightning struck Steph C and this is the result. Do not question, just accept. Google search the photos for this if you need proof.
Vintage Vests 222 Folkwear
Pretty much all of the Folkwear are great, but this is the only vest pattern I ever use. It's well drafted, comes in mens and womens sizes, and has great instructions. First welt pockets I ever made, and made a believer out of me.
Loes Hinse Textile Studio Barcelona Dress
This is the other dress that makes everyone look amazing, but this one has sleeves that work and can be made in a woven. This dress, in polka dots, has broken stubborn humans that dared to cross me. It's out of print, but it's out there. It's worth the search.
|Barcelona dress line drawing. It's pretty simple to figure out. The skirt is one piece, cut four times, on the bias. The bodice is a pullover with small waist darts, cut ongrain.|
CB Spiral Blouse
I've only made this once, it's a little tricksy to stitch up. There's a part on the sleeve that you have to take on faith (and maybe fold up the paper pattern to see how it could possibly work). But it does, and it's not a fabric hog. Very wearable, and very worth the $20.
