Easy Sewing Patterns to download

There are a ton of free PDF sewing patterns out there for everything from napkins to stuffed animals to dresses and shirts. New to PDF patterns? You can check out my comprehensive PDF Patterns 101 Post HERE!

Below, I’ve compiled a list of some of the free patterns I’ve tried. Some of these are free just by going to the website. Others are free only if you join their Facebook Group or sign up for a newsletter for example.

Some designers will have a free pattern each year, and then that pattern goes back to full price and a new free pattern will be available. So, make sure you download what you see right away!

It’s nice when sewing pattern companies offer a free pattern or two, so that you can try their product out first! This will let you know if you like the way the patterns are formatted and also how good the drafting is.

I’ll add more patterns to this post as I test them out. Enjoy!

Pirate Pencil Skirt – Patterns for Pirates

free pdf sewing pattern from patterns for pirates

Patterns for Pirates, contrary to the name, are not just for pirates. It’s actually a super popular indie PDF pattern designer.

This pattern is a classic pencil skirt drafted for use with knit fabrics. I made this skirt in the picture from a sweater knit from Joann Fabric Store. You can see my full post on it HERE. The pattern is available on the website for free!

Pegs (Leggings) – Patterns for Pirates

A pattern for a wardrobe staple – a basic pair of leggings. This one does also have some fun options like a side panel with a pocket (pockets!!), and a contoured waistband. Make sure to download the Pegs add-on pack if you want the extras.

I’ve made 4 or 5 pairs including a wide-legged version (you go straight down from the inseam points and add a few inches), an above the knee version to work out in, and the shorties version to wear under skirts.

On the pair pictured, I added a bit of length so that they scrunch at the bottom for a ruched look. This pattern is free on the website!

A dolman top with some fun options including a hi-lo curved hem. You can see my post on it HERE. Also available in girls and doll sizes.
Lounge gown is the name, swim cover up is its game! A fun sew for the summer. Free through the Facebook Group. See my post on it HERE.
This is a loose fitting boxy shirt. Oversize tops are definitely in right now. I usually choose more fitted shirts as a pear shape, but this one is really cute just tucked in at the top. It would also be cute untucked with some skinny jeans or jeggings. You can see my post on it HERE.
This is a cute pattern. There are pattern pieces for both a dinosaur and a dragon. I love the details with the fiery tongue for the dragon and the different shaped spikes for the dinosaur. You can see the full post I made HERE.

I used the same shape as the free pattern for these, except I just made them bigger as I wanted larger stockings for Christmas.

I think I drew a line out 2 inches on each side of the existing pattern. Then cut the cuff the same width as the new stocking size. The two stockings pictured below are Mrs. and Mr. as the one on the left has a fun lace overlay on it.

I just put a basting spray on the back of the lace and stuck it on top of the fleece cuff then top stitched it on top and bottom. Instead of adding a loop, I sewed a wired ribbon into the seam of the cuff so that I could tie it to our banister as we don’t have a fireplace.

These stockings are really simple and affordable. You could find some fun fluffy fabrics for these if you wanted or make a quilted stocking! How fun!
