Patterns for sewing:
You can find the patterns of my favourite self-sewn clothes on this site. There are both adult and children's clothes, dran to a small scale. 1 square means 5 centimetres, so you should draw gridlines at 5 cm distance from each other and transfer the lines there from square to square. Draw carefully, you don't want to find an error after the dress is cut.
The descriptions given with the patterns won't do the job of teaching the basics of sewing to those who cannot tell one end of the needle from the other. This knowledge can be acquired from books or courses or by asking your Mom, mother in law...etc. :o) Yet, I do write a little list about the sewig techniques I often use and about my basic defaults. I will often give references to this page with the actual patterns, but it's also worth reading before you start.
Have fun with your needleworking and enjoy the new clothes!
ATTENTION, US RESIDENTS!!! THE LENGTHS GIVEN IN THE METRIC SYSTEM CAN BE CONVERTED INTO US measures BY THE HELP OF A CONVERSION TABLE.
IMPORTANT! The following clothes are my design, the patterns were drawn by my own hands. Even if an idea was based on a dress that I bought somewhere else, I changed the pattern, thus, according to my best knowledge, the patterns published here don't violate any copyright law.
Ladies' and maternity clothes:
Renaissance-style dress (not only for expectant moms!):
The original of this dress was a present from Zoltan on one of our first dates (see left pic). The day I got it was one of the happiest days in my life, maybe that's why I love this one so much! It's easy to change the pattern to fit little girls, too. I'm looking forward to sew one for my daughter! You can add plain pockets or a nursing opening (see at the pattern) to the basic pattern. I recommend it for beginners, because it's very easy to sew.
This is the most comfortable maternity outfit I've ever worn. Even if you feel big as a barn, it won't be tight anywhere. If you sew little strings onto the sides and/or back, you can adjust it to your growing belly. I highly recommend sewing this one!!!
I saw these pants first on a pregnant mom at a childbirth class. I fell in love with it, drew the pattern the next day and on the third day it was ready. They are also good for very big bellies!
(child's outfit below)
Daddy and Baby jogging uniform
- and children's clothes
Baby sleeping bag (European size 68-80 / 4-10 months)
pattern coming soon
Baby hats for winter (fits all)
This is one of the easiest things I've ever sewn. With a little experience, you can have it ready within half an hour or an hour in case of the more complicated version.
Summer bonnet for baby girls (European size 56-68 / 0-4 months)
It is as easy to sew this little romantic bonnet, as it looks pretty. With its delicate feminine style, it can make the simplest clothing look elegant .
