When I first learnt to sew I spent hours on pinterest looking for free sewing patterns to allow me to build my skills before purchasing patterns I really wanted. A lot of the time the links weren’t productive or the pattern wasn’t as described. I’ve been researching and found this list of up-to-date, free sewing patterns that you can download!

This list hasn’t got anything too intricate, they are mostly beginners patterns and although most are advertised in rather girly fabrics, a lot of the patterns can be made to work for all genders based on your fabric choices.
