New free pattern from Madalynne!


I'm in the midst of some pattern designing myself lately and I always appreciate the effort of others to give this sewing community free access to patterns to experiment with and explore our creativity. And I believe that more people out there creating patterns and sharing them only helps to make the online sewing community grow.


The lovely Maddie from Madalynne just released her first free pattern - the Amerson Undies, a pair of woven ruched undies you could whip up in an hour with some of your scraps you've been wanting to use.


What's great is the pattern comes in five sizes and includes finished measurements for leg opening in addition to hip. It tells you exactly the length and width of your zig zag stitch, helpful sketches and even though it's a pretty simple pattern (only three pieces) she has detailed instructions.

The gridded layout will make it easy to print out and assemble and the illustrations done by Anto are stunning, at first I seriously thought the drawing was a photograph. She is so talented and skilled at her art!

You can go download the PDF and tryout the pattern over at Madalynne and you can see the version Maddie made, as well as some of her other creations (which will hopefully become patterns!), here.

If you've never made your own undies before, give it a try! It uses so little fabric you probably already have enough on hand, construction is pretty simple and it's relatively easy to make fit adjustments when it is something so small. Maddie even has a post on how to grade underwear in case you don't fit into the five sizes on her pattern.

Yay for new patterns!
