I am so sorry I have been very quiet for a long time but as some of you might know I have been unwell for a few months but I am starting to get a bit better very slowly – so its time to start thinking about sewing again!
For Christmas, my amazing parents got me the most wonderful gift I could imagine – a brand new Pfaff Coverlock machine!!
To allow me to practice using this fabulous machine and ease myself gently back into sewing after a few months break I have decided that I will make myself some basic tees!
Because I am new to the world of overlocking and coverstitching I don’t want to break the bank on masses of new patterns so I have decided to stick to free pdf patterns, and it turns out there are A LOT to choose from. So here I have compiled a list of the free t-shirt sewing patterns I can find.
Over the coming weeks/months I will endeavour to make a few of these (I can’t promise I will get through them all) and let you know what I think. It’s time to find out if these free patterns are worth the investment(!)
Disclaimer: As there are so many free t-shirt patterns out there I have only included those here that are designed by an indie designer and are available as a pdf download. They should be designed to be made in a knit fabric. They must have some kind of sleeve option (so no tanks I’m afraid) and are designed for a female figure.
So here we go, listed below you will find the designers name and then the name of the free tee pattern. There is a link to each pattern included below (some of them are not marked as free but you can get discount codes for them in the pattern company’s Facebook group – all will be explained in the detailed reviews). As and when I review the patterns I will provide a link to the review here as well!
Like I said I will let you know when I have tried each of them and add a link to the review but in the meantime, I’d love to know if there are any you have tried already and what you thought – also please let me know if there are any I have missed and I will add them to the list!
p.s. If you want to keep up with my progress as I make these tees I will be using the hashtag #HSewsFreeTees over on Instagram so why not keep up with me there
