As a sewist, you can never have too many patterns. From indie sewing patterns to vintage finds, we’ll take them all, please! But, it doesn’t get much better than when you stumble across free sewing patterns that you actually like – that’s a huge win in our books.

To find them, though, you often have to wade through a sea of pretty low quality patterns. To save you time and prevent the hassle, we’ve put together ten amazing free sewing patterns from 2022 that don’t cost a penny and are Good Fabric approved! Check them out and get your budget-friendly sewing on.

Seamwork Sorbetto Top

This is one of our favourite free sewing patterns out there. It’s incredibly quick to whip up, has different options for a customised look, and – of course – doesn’t cost anything! There are three versions available in the pattern with sleeve/no sleeve options, different necklines, and varying lengths.

Viki Sews Milana Dress Free Sewing Pattern

This is an absolutely beautiful dress that’s perfect for special occasions. It’s so beautiful that we almost can’t believe it’s a free sewing pattern! A close fit, accentuated waist, and darts create a well-fitting form, whilst gorgeous flounces around the V-shaped neckline and hem of the dress add a floaty, girly look. A bow with long tails is used to tie the back together for the perfect finish! #vikisews_милана #vikisews_milana

Elbe Textiles Maxi Dress

A floaty, breezy maxi dress, this is the ideal garment to take you from sunbathing on the beach to a dinner out with the ladies and everything in between. The wide straps make this a comfortable dress that’s ideal for a wide range of sizes. The subtle side splits add a hint of sensuality, whilst the low back adds glamour. Pair with sandals, trainers, or heels – this is a dress for all occasions. Download this pattern via Peppermint Magazine. 

Grasser Bias Cut Skirt

If you’re looking for an elegant skirt, we’ve got you covered – well, Grasser has! Their free sewing pattern is amazing, with all the instructions you need and a gorgeous design. The silk skirt is meant to be cut on the bias for a super flowy skirt with plenty of stretch, creating a relaxed, elegant look that we’re totally in love with. You’ll also find tutorials on their YouTube channel, helping you put the pattern together to create your own floaty masterpiece. 

In The Folds Playsuit

Super cute, relaxed, and comfy, this playsuit is a wonderful garment to make. In a pinafore style, you can wear it on its own when the weather’s warm or layer it with a tight-fitting jumper and tights for a brilliant transitional piece between seasons. Two large front pockets make this a practical garment, too! Fill your pockets with all your essentials (or, more likely, loose change and old train tickets) and rock your playsuit all year long.

Megan Nielsen Acacia Underwear

Who would say no to more undies in their drawer? Once you see these super cute Acacia knickers, you definitely won’t! In a low-rise bikini cut, they’re comfortable but still sexy, whilst a gusset with enclosed seams provides plenty of coverage. The instructions also walk you through three different ways to insert elastic, which is fantastic for beginners. Learn new skills and gain some free underwear at the same time.

Merchant & Mills Bucket Hat

Add it to your festival wardrobe or wear it on your next fishing trip: the bucket hat is a versatile item that’s become super trendy in recent years. Now, you can make your own with this free sewing pattern! From Merchant & Mills, it’s a super simple bucket hat that you can make your own by choosing different fabrics and switching between wide and narrow brims. It’s recommended for sewers at an intermediate level, so you’ll need some level of skill to nail this one.

Madalynne Barret Bralette

Making your own bras is a fantastic way to get the measurements just right for great support and comfort. If you fancy giving it a go, take a peek at the Barret bralette, which isn’t too difficult (though probably not for absolute beginners). In a sporty, support-focused design with adjustable shoulder straps, it’ll suit a wide range of bust sizes. It also has an elastic band for ultimate comfort and can be pulled on – no difficult fastenings, hooray!

Luna Sleeping Mask
