My Favourite Sources for Garment Sewing Patterns

Is it ridiculous that I haven’t even started sewing garments yet, and I’m compiling a list of my favourite sources? I’ve just had so many friends interested in getting started with me, and I started searching, and Instagram-ming, and… well… here it is! I absolutely love that any time I look at a pattern and wonder about a different fabric choice, or how it looks on others, you can just search the title of the pattern on Instagram and find a hashtag with so many others telling about their hacks and adjustments.

I’m super inspired by many patterns on this list, and can’t wait to get started!

The Growing List of Garment Sewing Patterns:

Peppermint Mag - Free, yes FREE patterns! Including a jumpsuit, a romper, a cute Boxy top, and more!

Friday Pattern Company - On-trend designs, made for summer days.

Common Stitch Patterns - I’m obsessed with the Bellebird Wrap Dress they just released… but I’m working to finish some other patterns first!

Marilla Walker Patterns - The Roberts collection caught my eye for an amazing value with 4 patterns in one!

Maven Patterns - Some really sweet vintage-looking patterns. I’m tempted by the cowl on the French Dart Shift Dress.

Megan Nielsen - A TON of basics, plus some cute dress designs. Also a bunch of maternity options!

In the Folds - Lots of gorgeous drape-y dresses - and a few free patterns at the bottom!

Paper Cut Patterns - Many dresses, shirts, and zippered jeans, with a DARLING swimsuit I am so tempted to try!

Tessuti - A great variety of patterns, Mandy Boat Tee is supposed to be a cult favourite!

Wiksten - Home of the Wiksten Tank, which has been all over Instagram and Pinterest!

Closet Case Patterns - a wide range of patterns, including some denim jeans and overalls, and coats and jackets.

Seamwork Patterns - I don’t understand how this one works - some are only by membership. However, there are a lot of patterns here!

Indisew - It appears they are not designers themselves (that I know of), but rather a compilation of many modern patterns!

Deer and Doe - Lots of sweet dresses - Aubepine looks darling!

Named Patterns - Of course, I will be starting with the Kielo Wrap dress! I loved what I saw on Instagram and I found a cute striped stretch linen to try it in.

Sew House 7 - I’ve already downloaded the Toaster Sweater Patterns, and bought my fabric! Wish me luck!

Damar Studio - A darling asymmetrical sweater dress!

I’ll be updating this list as I find more!
