Grab A Pattern!


After a mini tidy-up of my sewing space at the weekend, it’s time for a destash… These are five patterns that are never going to make it to my cutting table so they’re up for grabs πŸ™‚ First come, first served in the comments section below please. I’m happy to post anywhere free of charge as a thank you to all my regular readers, but only one pattern per reader please to share the sewing love even further. Please indicate clearly which pattern you’d like…

No 1: Simplicity K1418 Project Runway, UK sizes 4-20 and multiple dress options. I have lots of similar dress patterns and I don’t think the full skrt on this would work on my hips. That said there Β are some very pretty back details on this…

No 2: New Look K6340, easy, flared dress design with various design options. Looks great for Summer but the lack of a waist on this means it’s a non-starter for me. UK sizes 12-24 US 8-20)

No 3: New Look K6263 is another semi-fitted dress, but with an interesting neck detail. A little more shift-like than the previous one but still not enough structure for me. Β UK 8-18, US 12-22

No 4: McCall’s M7129 Wraparound Skirt pattern is labelled as a beginners design. It has options for both straight and fuller skirts. I already have Tilly’s Miette pattern which is very similar. Sizes 8-16 I think American sizing.


And lastly, my favourite…

No 5: Simple Sew’s Classic Pleated Culottes. I so love these on everyone else but I need to part with it as it’s never going to work on me… It needs a better home so shout up! Beginner Level, UK 8-20

Hope there’s something that takes your fancy if you got here early enough. Happy sewing! πŸ™‚

  1. Ooo, could I grab the simple Sew culottes pretty please…. I saw these the other day that someone had made and gutted I couldn’t find the pattern online. This is a great idea, I might sort through my stash and give some away xx

  2. Hi I’m up for simplicity 1418. I wish I wasn’t such a pattern hoarder and could share the love. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book. XX

  3. A great idea! I must get around to doing something like this. There are patterns that I bought a couple of years ago that I wouldn’t wear anymore – my sense of style has seriously changed since I started sewing! I hope all your patterns find a happy new home. πŸ™‚

  4. Oh too slow for the culottes – and I’ve just been searching Pinterest for a pattern too!! Great idea for a destash though – may pinch it for my own decluttering efforts!

  5. Oooh what a great idea! I reall love the new look pattern K6340 ( the grey dress). Is that one still available? If it is, I can give it a very loving home 😊.

  6. This is such a good idea! I need a serious sort out – I buy patterns because they look good on other people when I know they aren’t going to work for me!

  7. I’d love New Look K6263, if it’s still available, please! This is such a kind idea! Many thanks, Teresa, for the chance. Happy sewing, Jen

  8. Not sure if my comment got through…? Apologies if I end up commenting twice! It’s a very kind idea, and I’d love New Look K6263 if still available! Many thanks, Jen

    • Takes a little bit of time to sort through but worth it! A lot of these were freebies with magazines so always a bit hit and miss as to whether they’d suit your style and shape or not…
