Where to Find Free Sewing Patterns Online

Whether you’re just starting out with sewing or have been doing it for decades, you’ll want to know where to find free sewing patterns. The Internet is key to finding free, relevant patterns that aren’t being thrown away because they’re outdated.

The top places to find free sewing patterns are:

Pinterest Boards

Pinterest is always a great option, and they have so many free patterns on the site that hundreds of thousands of people have downloaded. There are a lot of great boards available, and these include:

  • FREE sewing patterns – A board with over 2,000+ free patterns available for everything from summer skirt patterns to storage cubes.
  • Sewing patterns – Another great board that provides sewing patterns. A lot of the patterns are paid, but there are also free options mixed into the board.

You can also follow the search link directly to find sewing pattern boards that pop up. These boards are a great way to find free patterns, and they are very active, too. Share your free patterns on these boards, too, and become part of these fast-growing communities.


Craftsy has a shop, but they also have a great section where free sewing patterns are provided. There are 2n413 free patterns as of writing this article, and the number continues to grow weekly.

What’s nice is that there are sewing patterns for all skill levels:

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

You’ll learn how to make dresses, jackets, pants, skirts, shirts, bags, purse organizers and numerous other items for free. You are also helping to support independent designers that use the Craftsy marketplace to sell their patterns.

All Free Sewing

All Free Sewing is created to provide you with a slew of free material. The site has a little of everything, but the key is free sewing patterns. You’ll also find a variety of other materials, including:

  • Sewing videos
  • Giveaways
  • Free eBooks
  • Tutorials and tips

What’s nice is that the site has a lot of great, hip patterns available. I am looking at a free dress pattern right now, but there are hundreds to browse through. You’ll also find patterns for skirts and purses among many other items.

As a resource for free patterns and instructions, All Free Sewing is a great option.

Mood Fabrics

Mood Fabrics is another great resource, and what I like is that the site has a lot of blogs and articles on current fashion trends. You’ll be inspired by a lot of their posts, and you’ll also find a wonderful section that has patterns for free.

All of the patterns have great instructions that are easy to follow.

There is a basic line of free patterns, and these include:

  • Maternity shirts
  • Jackets
  • Jeans
  • Dresses
  • Skirts

You’ll find a little of everything in Mood Fabrics’ free collection. And since the designs are free, you can sharpen your sewing skills, add to your wardrobe and create a collection of your own personally-sewn garments.

These are just a few of the go-to places I look at when trying to find inspiration or a free pattern to start a project.

If you are interested in sewing books, you can find some great ones that I recommend here.
