Free Aline Pattern 12 mos - 5T

When I started blogging I had absolutely no idea if I was going to like it or stick with it for very long ... confession time ... I am a huge procrastinator who often leaves things unfinished.  So you can see why I doubted my ability to maintain a blog :)  Much to my surprise (and my mom's I'm sure ... I've been a procrastinator since birth ... I was born 17 days late!) I have been steadily posting for a little over six months now, and this week will be my 100th post!

I feel like I should do something to celebrate this milestone, so I'm offering two free patterns this week and another one next week!  I'm starting with a basic aline pattern today.


This pattern is very, very (very!) basic just like the Basic Bodice Pattern I shared a while ago.  It is intended to be a basis for tutorials that I will share on this blog in the future, although I will also share easy ways to finish the pattern as it is currently drafted later this week.

*** Download the pattern and print from Adobe Acrobat... do not print directly from Dropbox as it will not print correctly ... also check to be sure the 1" box is the correct size on the first page of the pattern before cutting your fabric ***

Make sure to come back for a couple of tutorials plus another free pattern coming in the next few days :)

  1. Thank you so much for the pattern! Can't have too many basic and easy to customize patterns if you ask me :)

    1. I agree! There aren't too many patterns I don't customize. I can't seem to help myself :)

  2. Teri, I feel exactly exactly the same way. I started my blog just this year and started sewing the sept last year. I dont know how long this will last. My hobbies generally last for a year but I'm totally loving to sew and the create.

    1. I've been sewing for around 15 years so I don't see that ever ending :) I have no idea how long I'll continue with the blogging, but I do enjoy it for now.

  3. Thank you for this great pattern!! If you ever get a chance to up-size, that would be so greatly appreciated!! - We're size 8/9. If you're moving on.... it's all good and thank you, as always for everything.

    1. I don't know if I will size up on this one or not, but I will let you know if I do :)

    2. How much do I decrease the size of the pattern from 18 month for 12 month?

    3. If you look at the difference between the size 2 and 3, that should be about the same size difference as between the 12 months and 18 months.

  4. Thanks for the generous gift of your patterns. They are perfect for inspiration and so much nicer than searching through pattern books at the store.

  5. Thanks for the free pattern. Do I need to add a seam allowance?

  6. I know this is probably a long shot, as this post was in 2014, but do all your patterns allow for the seam allowance when printed? Thanks.
