Free Clothes Patterns Posted on | October 9, 2008 | 7 Comments I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size. Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. Nonetheless, I still love my pattern free sewing. These patterns generally of three types. Skirts are very easy to make without a pattern. I came across a few patterns that didn’t fit into any other category, so I gave them their own. We normally assume underwear is too complicated or to time consuming to sew ourselves. Aprons can usually be whipped up in less than an hour. Shirts and dresses are much more complicated to make than skirts. Coats can easily be the most expensive piece of clothing in your wardrobe.

Astuce débardeur qui n'en est pas un! - A tout petit point... 09 avril 2014 Astuce débardeur qui n'en est pas un! Quand j'ai croisé cette astuce sur Pinterest, il y a quelques mois, j'ai trouvé l'idée géniale. La blouse Fait Main est très ouverte sur le devant, impossible de ne rien mettre dessous. Mais de tester quoi??? Je n'ai rien inventé du tout... juste repris à ma sauce ce que j'ai trouvé sur ce super site qui doit être japonais: Etant donné que ces photos sont ultra parlantes, je ne vous ferai pas une démo sur moi! Voici donc ma version: Elle est ultra simple... Pas de dentelle, pas de chichi... Retour sur une photo de mise en situation: Une découpe, deux coutures, deux pressions.. Ce "pseudo débardeur" est déclinable à l'infini... Encore une chouette idée pour valoriser les chutes... Commentaires Poster un commentaire

measurements for flea market fancy quilt edit...after further calculations, I changed the yardage requirement for the sashing fabric from 2 1/3 to 2 3/4 yards. (see below.) First off, I'd like to thank Alissa for her inspiration AND her willingness to let me share this pattern with all of you. Here are the measurements I used for my flea market fancy quilt top.... cut a 5" inch square for the center of the block. you will need 20. cut 2 rectangles 3.5" x 5" and 2 rectangles 3.5" x 11". assemble the block with a 1/4" seam allowance. each 1/4 yard (I used 1/4 yards, not fat quarters for this, but FQ's would work, too) will yield enough pieces to border 2 blocks. you will need 10 quarter yards for the outsides of the blocks. make 20 blocks. for the sashing: I used bleached muslin. you will need 2 3/4 yards. first, cut 2 border pieces 5" x 80 1/2" (cut this lengthwise, not selvage to selvage, to avoid seams). set this aside for your final borders. cut 6 border/sashing pieces 5" x 56". cut 15 sashing pieces 5" x 11". Assemble your quilt top.

Patron robe caftan - samiacréations-couture Bonjour tout le monde, Aujourd'hui je vais vous présenter un tutoriel pour réaliser un patron pour robe caftan car cela m'a été beaucoup demandé (j'ai utilisé ce patron pour la robe caftan grise de ma mère). Avant de commencer, je voulais vous préciser que je n’ai jamais eu une formation dans la couture marocaine et la robe caftan grise était la première robe que j'ai réalisée en se basant sur une robe de ma mère qu'elle avait achetée. J’ai pris les mesures de ma mère ainsi que les mesures de la robe et j'ai tirée ce patron, qui est tellement simple car ça ne nécessite pas un corsage de base (qui est parfois un peu compliqué) Donc je précise encore une fois, ce patron c'est moi qui l’ai fait et je n’ai aucune idée si la réalisation de tous les caftans vendus se base aussi sur le même principe. Donc si vous voulez réaliser un caftan, n'hésitez pas à essayer ce patron sur un tissu pas cher (type borgeau, coton...etc) et maintenant je vous laisse avec le tutoriel: - AB = 10 cm / AB'= 5cm.

Basic Sloper Patterns: Priceless Do you own any basic slopers or pattern blocks? Well, if you went to fashion school, you do, and you know how incredibly useful they are. But if you didn’t- well perhaps you don’t have to go to school for this, with the resources available to the sewing community these days. Every single piece of clothing that is not draped is derived from a basic pattern block or sloper. I must stress the importance of creating your own, customized slopers. Once you have taken the time to create your basic patterns (designed off of your personal measurements or your fit model’s measurements) you can make anything. Here is a Bodice Sloper that you can use to develop top and blouses from, and then add on the Skirt Sloper sloper to make a dress! Or you can isolate the skirt to create all types of skirt designs! Into sewing with knits? If you already want a sloper that is a dress, here are TWO different silhouette to choose from: The Fitted Dress Sloper, and then the Shift Dress Sloper.
