85 Free-Clothes-PatternsSummary: 85 free clothes patterns divided into skirts, dresses, shirts, pants,  and more. There’s even a section on free clothes patterns for men.

I originally became interested in patternless sewing, many years ago, because I had a hard time finding patterns in my size.

Nowadays, patterns in large sizes abound. Nonetheless, I still love my pattern free sewing.

These patterns generally of three types. One type requires you to take your measurements and draw up the pattern yourself.  One method is completely pattern free and includes instructions only. And the third, offers printable patterns in certain sizes only. I have included a mix of all three types.

Skirts are very easy to make without a pattern. That’s why there are so many patterns available on the internet.


Pants patterns are rather hard to draft, so there aren’t a lot of freebies available. Here are some of my favorites.


I came across a few patterns that didn’t fit into any other category, so I gave them their own.


It’s hard to find free clothes patterns for men. My guess would be there is only one men’s pattern for every 50-100 patterns for ladies.


We normally assume underwear is too complicated or to time consuming to sew ourselves. Most of these patterns for undergarments are extremely easy.


Aprons can usually be whipped up in less than an hour.


Dresses are much more complicated to make than skirts. Sleeves and necklines are both problems for novice sewers.


When I first put together this list, I had shirts and dresses bunched together.  This time around, I decided to give them both their own category, since there are so many free patterns for each.


Coats can easily be the most expensive piece of clothing in your wardrobe. It’s amazing how easy it is to make your own and save a bundle.
