Sew Straight and Gather – SewSophieLynn
I love sewing for fall and the Back to School Blog Tour hosted by Lulu and Celeste and Sprouting Jube Jube was a great excuse to sew for my oldest daughter. Make sure to head over to Sprouting Jube Jube to see the amazing list of sponsors- so many great pattern and fabric companies!
When it came time to plan my sweet girl’s back to school wardrobe we first went through her closet to see any gaps that needed to be filled. It’s no secret that this girly has quite the closet full of clothes. In an attempt to keep it from overflowing we decided a capsule wardrobe for fall would work best. We pulled old items from her closet, added a few new handmades, and then hit a couple stores for a few more pieces. I think this collection of handmade and store-bought clothes sums up her wardrobe in general. I love to sew her easy, quick pieces and fill it in with ready-to-wear items that don’t make sense for me to sew- items that are inexpensive or too time consuming for me to fabricate. Sometimes it’s even easier for me to purchase things and then alter them to fit her skinny body- a quick taking in of the waist and hips has saved many ready-to-wear pants! Now on to the fashion show…
This blush pink bomber jacket, purchased at TJ Maxx, was the starting point for this capsule. I love it so much and have a serious case of jacket envy! It’s the perfect weight for fall and has been in heavy rotation here.
Jeans are one thing I’ve yet to attempt so I will gladly keep purchasing them! It’s hard to find pants that fit this girl and when we do I feel like cheering! H&M offers a wider range of sizes and their pants run on the skinny side so they are usually our first stop. Both of the jeans featured are from there. We also order online for her quite a bit since more stores carry slim sizing only in their online shops (Old Navy, Target, and Crazy 8 are some favorites).
This girl loves to browse online and fell in love with a few pieces from Children’s Place, including this hoodie and the button-up shirt (no longer available but here’s a similar version). For under ten dollars each, these pieces were no brainers for me to purchase. Button plackets, collars, button-holes- eek! She loves her button-ups and for that price I will gladly save myself the time, stress, and expense of making them. These hi-top white sneakers are also from Children’s Place.
The leggings and this tee were found at Ross and were both under $6- easy things to make, yes, but for that price point we were both happy to add them to our cart! For all you vinyl-lovers like myself, Thread and Grain has a super cute vinyl file with the same saying! The black and white polka dot Reebox were also a Ross score.
Onto the handmades!! I’m a huge fan of the Love Notions Boyfriend Cardigan (affl. link) and knew she’d love her own french terry version. I picked up this french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and while it’s currently not available there are PLENTY of other french terry options in the shop! It’s beyond cozy and a good alternative to the classic hoodie.
These two tops are oldies but goodies and are still going strong. The floral is the Andromeda Top from Sew Straight and Gather (you can see more pics of it here). The striped tee is my go-to t-shirt pattern, the City Park Tee from Hey June Handmade (more pics here). These are both shirts that she continues to gravitate to so they were no brainers to include in this capsule.
The Patterns for Pirates Butterfly Cardigan is another tried-and-true pattern for us. It’s an incredibly quick sew and I love the slouchy-cool look it has. This thin sweater knit has been in my stash forever and was perfect for this light-weight fall cardigan.
The last piece I made might be my favorite! The Lazy Day Lounge Pants from Gracious Threads are the perfect comfy pants! They’re a relaxed fit but not too baggy and sloppy. In this gorgeous french terry from Raspberry Creek fabrics (currently out-of-stock), I don’t think I could love them more!
Phew! You made it to the end- you might deserve a medal for sticking through all those details! So many pieces but they all add up to one super cute, versatile capsule wardrobe!
Thanks so much to Deb and Ula for hosting! Make sure to check out all the amazing inspiration this week. If you love sewing for kids then this tour is for you!

Studio Jumpsuit and maxi dress, Sew Straight and Gather
A maxi dress for the win! Terri hit the ball out of the park with the Studio pattern. For the price of one pattern, you get plenty of possibilities!!! Jumpsuit, jumpshorts, dress, maxi, 2 bodices etc.
I had to test the maxi and View A. I fell in love with View A instantly because it enhances the shoulder line beautifully.
Look at my lovely earrings (I’m fond of this Etsy shop, Bronze-N-Roses!)
I had this stripey knit, but, alas, not enough to make my stripes match!!! The dress is so comfy. I made my usual “little teapot” alterations: M bust blended to L at the waist and hips, bodice length-1″.
It’s a really quick sew, if you choose the dress. The Jumpsuit asks for an invisible zip so it might be more time-consuming, but Terri has great tutorials so don’t fear the zipper!
Pattern: Studio Jumpsuit and Dress, Sew Straight and Gather
Size Range: XXS to 4XL
Fabrics: knit with elasthan
Difficulty: dress is rated “beginner”, but I’ d rate the Jumpsuit as “intermediate” (invisible zipper sewn to knit)

Legends Top and Dress . Sew Straight and Gather
Who’s ready to start planning their summer wardrobe?! I know I am!
Terri’s new pattern for Sew Straight and Gather is one of those quick sews, that you will make in just about any knit stashed.
Ironically, during the whole test, the weather here in Portugal, as been nothing but rain and cold. So shooting pictures for a summer dress was not the easiest of tasks. I call this my Longing for Summer photoshoot! 😀 The pattern’s main feature is the flattering stand up collar. It has several style options, top or dress, long or short sleeve, sleeveless, half or full skirt. I made a sleeveless version with a low waistline. Already dreaming of my summer beach getaway! 😀 The top is cleverly constructed, incasing all the seams, so you’ll have a polished finish. This feature also gives you a chance to have fun with prints and color blocking. There’s also a girls pattern, so you can make a matching outfit for your girl!
The Legends Top and Dress Pattern will be on sale for $5 until February 19th. Go! I’ll just sit here by the window, watching the rain… the never ending rain!

How to Grade a Pattern Up or Down a Size (or Two)
Have you fallen in love with a pattern, only to find that it doesn’t come in your size? A few ladies told me that Itch to Stitch’s patterns don’t come in their sizes – some are smaller and some are larger than the measurements. Perhaps you have a tween who is not quite big enough to wear adult sizes, but too big for kid’s patterns. Perhaps you have a paper sewing pattern whose size range is just outside of yours (paper patterns come with one size range in an envelop, e.g., 6-8-10-12-14 in one envelop and 14-16-18-20-22 in another).
There’s no need to despair. With a little time and some effort, you could grade the pattern up or down.
This method is a pretty safe bet to change up to two sizes.
The caveat is that the pattern must be evenly graded.
What does “evenly graded” mean? It means at any specific point (let’s say, the waist), the measurements between sizes are the same.
Here’s an example (hypothetical numbers):
Size 00 Size 0 Size 2 Size 4 Size 6 Waist 64 cm 66 cm 68 cm 70 cm 72 cm
You see that each waist measurement is 2 cm larger than the previous size.
However, it doesn’t mean that every point on the pattern must increase by the same amount. In fact, it’s likely that it doesn’t grow by that same absolute amount. Think about when a person gains or loses weight, some part of her body would increase/decrease more than others. And no matter how much weight she gains or loses, she wouldn’t be taller or shorter.
Here’s the example:
Size 00 Size 0 Size 2 Size 4 Size 6 Waist 64 cm 66 cm 68 cm 70 cm 72 cm Neck to Waist Length 35 cm 35.25 cm 35.5 cm 35.75 cm 36 cm
In the example, while the waist still grows 2 cm per size, the neck to waist length only grows by 0.25 cm per size.
This is typical of women’s patterns. The “big guys,” such as Burda, Vogue, McCall, Butterick and Simplicity, all have evenly graded patterns. The indie pattern companies, such as Jalie and Silhouette also evenly grade their patterns, although some patterns have huge size ranges, so they may evenly grade only within a sub-range. For example, misses 8 to 16 are evenly graded, and women’s 18 to 24 are evenly graded. As long as there are three or more sizes graded evenly in a pattern, you can still deploy this method.
You don’t have to study very hard to discover whether a pattern is evenly graded. You can pretty much recognize it at the first glance. (This is the Vienna Tank.)
Some of Itch to Stitch’s patterns are not completely evenly graded across all the sizes. For example, in Lisbon Cardigan, the larger sizes have increasingly longer bodice, whereas the smaller sizes have the same bodice length. However, because there are more than 3 sizes in one range, you could still use this method to grade up or down.
So maybe this is an unnecessarily long-winded explanation. Most of the time, you can use this method anyway.
Let’s get started.
How to Grade
(Click to see larger images.)
Step 1: Determine how many sizes you need to go up or down.
This is body measurement table for most of Itch to Stitch’s patterns.
Notice that for each size, the bust is increased by 1 3/8″ (3.5 cm), the waist by 1 3/8″ (3.5 cm) and the hip by 1 3/8″ (3.5 cm). These figures happen to be the same, but they don’t necessary have to for other patterns.
So if there are two sizes bigger and two sizes smaller, the measurements would look like these:
Are you grading one size smaller/larger? Or two sizes?
Step 2: On the pattern, draw a straight, guiding line to connect the “corner points”.
Step 3: Measure the amount between sizes along each line. If you don’t have too strong of an aversion to the metric system, I think it’s easier to use millimeter (smaller unit is easier). But either way would work. I am going to use millimeter here.
Step 4: Plot the next size (or next two sizes) using the measurements.
The same logic applies with grading down.
Step 5: Repeat step 2, 3 and 4 along curves. More plots along the curves make it easier for you to connect them smoothly and accurately. There is no absolute number of lines that you need to follow. You can do it sparingly but enough to make you comfortable with drawing the curve. Try to have the straight guiding lines perpendicular (the right word is probably “tangent”) to the pattern lines but you don’t have to be insanely precise (we are increasing/decreasing one or two sizes). You don’t need to draw more straight guiding lines along the straight part of the pattern lines; those are easy to connect.
In the following example, I am going to continue on increasing one size only, but you get the drill of increasing two sizes or decreasing a size or two.
Step 6: Connect the dots as smoothly as you can.
After you draw all the dots and connect all of them, it will look like this:
Repeat for each pattern piece and there you go!
I hope this is helpful. Keep stitching!
13 Websites With Free Women’s Sewing Patterns (in PDF) — Sabrina Lee
When I first starting sewing, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on patterns that I wasn’t sure I would know how to use, so I wondered: where can I find free (but stylish) women’s sewing patterns that I could print out in the comfort of my own home? I searched high and low for these free PDF sewing patterns but found very little (and what I did find consisted mostly of shapeless boxes). That was back in 2011, and the internet has come a long way since then – nowadays there are free sewing patterns for every part of a woman’s wardrobe, whether you’re looking for tops, dresses, skirts, pants, coats, jumpsuits or even swimwear and lingerie. Best of all, these free patterns still have all kinds of stylish details that set them apart from boring basics. Because who wants to spend time sewing basics that they can easily buy anywhere?
The following 11 websites have collections of free sewing patterns for stylish, on-trend women’s clothing: Mood Fabrics, fabric.com, fabrics-store.com, Peppermint Mag, Fibre Mood, BurdaStyle (Russia), Bernina, Lekala Patterns, Grasser, Marfy and pattern-vault.com. All of these websites are from reputable fabric stores, pattern companies or sewing publications, so rest assured that the patterns are well-drafted.
Below is a summary of the types of free sewing patterns that you will find on each website. Plus, check out my recommendations for places to buy fabric and sewing equipment to use to make up these patterns here.
One quick sidebar before we jump in: Although I love free sewing patterns as much as the next gal, I still mainly sew with Vogue/McCall’s/Butterick patterns, which are not free but usually cost less than $6 on sale. The reason is I’ve sewn enough with Vogue/McCall’s/Butterick patterns to know how they need to be altered to fit me, and by now I can usually just sew a pattern straight from the envelope (without making a test garment) because I know that my standard set of adjustments will almost always work. By contrast, most pattern companies only offer a few free sewing patterns, so you don’t sew enough with one particular pattern company to learn how that companies’ patterns should be adapted to fit your body. Alternatively, if the free patterns are offered on a website or in a sewing magazine, then those patterns are often drafted by many different designers, using different slopers (a sloper is a basic form-fitting pattern that designers use to develop other patterns). That means that (1) the patterns can be based on a lot of different body types, so they all fit differently despite being published in the same magazine or website, and (2) there might not be much quality control, so you’re never sure that every pattern and set of instructions is high-quality. In addition to fitting and quality control issues, I also just think that PDF patterns can be a real hassle: I really, really, really hate printing out and taping together these PDF patterns, and I often think that free patterns are just as costly as paid-for patterns, once you factor in the cost of ink and paper, and the value of the time you spend taping the patterns together.
The fabric store of Project Runway fame has really stepped up their online presence in recent years, and they now offer an extensive library of free sewing patterns covering a wide range of garment types (tops, pants, a ton of dresses, jackets and coats), including garment types that are not covered on most other websites (e.g. lingerie, swimwear, athletic wear). There are a ton of patterns that are super on-trend – for example, these paper-bag waist pants, this pussy bow blouse (similar to the one that Kamala Harris recently rocked), and this maxi shirt dress, just to name a few. They have a “basics collection” that I think is supposed to be geared towards beginners, although some of these projects are not appropriate for total beginners, in my opinion.
Their patterns do not come with instructions, but there are blog posts that explain how to sew the garment (with photos). You must register for their mailing list to download the free patterns.
One (minor) rant: I wish they had a view where you could look at the line drawings for all of the patterns in a particular category. It is possible to filter the posts by category (e.g. outerwear patterns, dress patterns, etc.) but that just narrows it down to the blog posts with photos of the finished garments – not the line drawings themselves. It can be hard sometimes to discern all of the construction details (or sometimes even the basic silhouette!) in the photos of the finished garments, and it would just be so much easier to sift through the enormous number of patterns if they made it easier to browse by line drawing.
Another (more substantive) rant: I’ve found Mood patterns to be really hit or miss. For example, I made this robe using Mood’s free pattern, and the result was a gargantuan robe that made my arms look like an orangutan’s. I also made this wrap dress using a Mood free pattern, and the finished garment did not fit me at all. I don’t think you have to avoid their patterns altogether; I just think you need to approach with caution. First, do some research on patternreview.com to see if anyone has reviewed the pattern. Second, don’t rely on their size chart; instead, measure the pattern and determine the measurements of the finished garment, then use those measurements to decide which size to cut. Third, always, always, always make a muslin to try out the pattern before cutting into your precious fashion fabric. I took that approach with the Primrose pant, and that one ended up being a winner (though it took a muslin and a few alterations to get there).
