that is awesome, I'm doing a sew-a-long in September and I was in search for some free patterns, you are an answer to prayers!

What a neat site! I'd love to try it out, but I've never worked with fixed patterns before. Any suggestions? How would you modify the pattern to fit?

Tiffany said... Best Blogger Tips

Has anyone downloaded one of these? It looks like you can put in your measurements - do you pay for these?

Thanks so much!

How does a fixed pattern work? How do you know what size it is? Do you just have to make a muslin and adjust from there?

Amanda said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm with Trisha. Please explain. I did some google searches but came up empty.

Yes, if you could explain what a fixed pattern is, I would love to know because some of these patterns are great!

Fehr Trade has a guide on buying from the site

She mentions that the free example patterns measurements are 165h/84b/74ub/64w/92h in cm, these would then have to be graded...

@Meg the Grand@Amanda@Trisha@Lauren@Tiffany
To all who asked about the 'fixed' part. These patterns are in sample size. That is:
33 Bust
25 Waist
36 Hip
That's small for most. If you want to try and grade it yourself here's a good article about the cut and spread method:

If you're close to the sample size you could try in muslin first and add where you need as you go. Or if you're daring add where you think will be needed without doing a muslin.

There are a handful of patterns that they will send custom sizes for FREE! Link: http://leko-mail.net/mod-e.php?t=4&a=0&n=1

If anyone gets one please report back! I am interested since my measurements are close, but a little nervous about downloading their pattern printing software.

This site is nice. I do recognize some of the dress patterns. I've seen some of them on this site: http://m-sewing.com/ all the patterns are available for free download and are available in small, med, large and sometimes extra-large.

Sofia said... Best Blogger Tips

I've finished a dress from one of their patterns...I'm a size "in-between" S and M, so I just added a couple of cm to the side seam allowances and it fits well.
Also, I downloaded the pdf version of the pattern, no problem/virus whatsoever so far.
Pictures os the dress over here http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/pink-oriental-dress in case someone's interested.
