Melly Sews Designed Sewing Pattern Tutorials
These are the tutorials and instructions for all my free sewing patterns. To download the actual patterns, see this post.
Note: the majority of these free patterns come in one size only – that’s why they’re free 🙂 While I would love to offer a full range of every size for every free PDF pattern, it’s not feasible for me to do so. Drafting, grading and testing multiple sizes of patterns takes time and money, so generally these are all women’s size small or whatever size my kids were wearing at the time. That way I test them on myself or my kids, and we get to wear the test garments.
Specific measurements and size information is listed in each tutorial, so click through to read those details. And as always, this post shows how to adapt a pattern to make it bigger or smaller if you need different size sewing patterns.
Information about fabric requirements can be found in each tutorial if that information exists. If I did not include fabric amounts, you can calculate that as shown in this post.
For more selection and multi-sized patterns, visit my shop, Blank Slate Patterns.
The sewing projects and printable templates in the posts below cover a range of sewing skill levels. And again, these tutorials contain the detailed instructions but NOT the PDF download. To access the pattern pieces, see this post.
