The latest free sewing pattern from So Sew Easy is this cute wrap dress pattern. The front has a cross-over bodice with pleats, there’s a straight skirt and an optional elastic waist, with a matching tie belt. Only the bodice wraps over leaving you safe from embarrassing wardrobe malfunction that can happen with wrap skirts. In sizes small to extra large, easy to sew, and really flattering and comfortable to wear. You'll love this dress!
The latest sewing pattern from So Sew Easy is a free t-shirt pattern for the Twist Front Top. It’s a sexy halter top that can also be a dress if you’d like to extend it. Designed for knit fabrics, this top crosses over at the front and the little keyhole at the front gives an interesting look while still actually being modest with full high coverage. The design is double thickness at the top front and back to give extra support if you need it, or for modesty if it turns chilly!

Easy summer dress pattern using a knit fabric and with different strap options. Multi-size pattern in small, medium and large with instruction for increasing or decreasing size. Dress has a ruched bust-line on the outside, supported on the inside with a second layer of unruched fabric. Empire waist gently skims over the hips for a flattering fit. Can be any length, above or below knee, mini or cut off at hips for a tunic.
Designed for softly draping knit fabrics, this blouse is easy to make, flattering, cool and strappy, with tummy covering draping and a rounded hemline in the front. And I’ve made it with wide enough straps that you should be able to wear a bra with only minimal straps peaking through at the back. The Summer Drape Top comes in a one-size fits most design. The pattern is free to download and can be made from less than one yard of fabric. Great for a beach cover up too, over a bikini top.
