In this next blog in our series, we are covering Free Skirt & Trouser Patterns. There are so many lovely free patterns out there and we just love some of the new patterns available.
We hope you love them too.
The Nasrin Pant by Mood Fabrics is a fantastic looking pant. We love the way they have been sewn in this amazing gold metallic fabric, they are perfect for a night out! However, these are still a fairly simple sew and would look very different sewn in everyday denim or cotton.
The Mountain Pose Pants are your perfect Yoga pant, ideal for exercise, lounging, or running errands. You have two options for the waistband, either a stylish cross-over front waistband or a more traditional waistband. Both are shaped and faced and optionally lined with knit interfacing to keep them in place. The pant legs are fitted through the upper leg and knee.
The Justine Skirt by Ready to Sew is a great everyday summer skirt. It uses woven fabrics and has a button-down front and optional patch pockets. Its high waist and A-Line shape is super flattering.
We love the traditional shape of these City Gym Shorts by Purl Soho, with their retro feel and tulip hem. Another amazing thing about this free pattern is that it comes in both kids and adult sizes. These are definitely going on our ‘To Make’ list!
Another great free pattern from Peppermint Magazine is these Wide Leg Pants. With their high waist and wide and cropped leg, they are a great shaped pant. We just love the fit of these.
When we started looking at free skirt patterns we had no idea we would find something suitable for evening wear! The amazing Cunilla Skirt from Mood gives us just that, with its fitted waist and flowing yards of fabric! It comes in maxi and cocktail length so choose whichever length suits the occasion.
The Wrap Skirt from Lila + June is perfectly retro. We can see it teemed with a petticoat or sleek and modern without. It is an excellent beginner project, with no fussy closures to deal with.
The Itch to Stitch Lindy Petal Skirt is a simple knit pencil skirt with an elastic waistband. It features two overlapping curved front panels that resemble two petals. It’s a quick sew and is figure-hugging to showcases your curves.
We love these adorable paper bag was it shorts from Mood. They are a fabulous summer staple and we can imagine them in so many gorgeous summer fabrics. The pattern is very size-inclusive and goes from a size 2 to size 30.
The Veronika Skirt from Megan Neilson is another lovely addition to your summer wardrobe. It’s a full skirt that can be made in both wovens and knits. It has a choice of two waistband options and the cutest pockets!
In addition to all of these lovely patterns, we have a few free patterns of our own! We have the DIY Patchwork Skirt Tutorial, DIY Plisse Skirt, DIY Jeans to Skirt Refashion, DIY 30 Minute Pencil Skirt, and our DIY Tiered Maxi Skirt!
That all should be enough to keep you busy!!
We hope you like our Free Skirt & Trouser Patterns options. If we have missed any of your favourites we would love to hear from you.
Happy sewing !
