Even though I am nearing 88 years old I am still sewing for needy children around the world. I need dress patterns up to size 12.

Another fab collection of free patterns, my pattern library is bursting as there are so many lovely items that I would like to make. The majority of patterns are really easy to get to and follow but you need to fully read the websites as often you can miss download links to get the templates. I will be having a good sort out of wardrobes later as I have got so many ideas of upcycling old clothing from this and then I shall get my sewing machine out ready for some making.

I click on the desired free pattern and it takes me to another page to download, then another. What is going on? Where are the templates?

Hi sjbryan 4897180! To get to the patterns, click on the green link of the project on this page that you'd like to create. You'll be taken to a page with a photo and description of the project, and below the description there will be a link that says "Click Here for Sewing Pattern." Click on that link and you will be taken to the sewing template. Please let us know if you need additional help!

Thank you!

VERY USEFUL, THANK YOU! There are also great free sewing patterns here: == patterns

I click on the paper doll skirt and another dress ,but all I get is something totally different.

I'm excited. Looks like great fun so thank you! But, I need a terrific jumper pattern suitable for Pendleton wool fabric size 8 and 10 girls. Can you help me? Louise

I have tried to get to the Paperdoll skirt over and over again but just can't get it. What am I doing wrong? Would appreciate any help. Joan

I'm not sure why the link takes you to that page, but here is the link to my tutorial for the paperdoll skirt: Hope that helps! xo Katy no big dill

I have clicked on "tank top ruffle dress" umpteen times and simply can't find it. What's the problem? Not a very friendly website, and I had such great expectations!

I think this collection is useful and fun. Making clothes for little girls like my niece is always a great way to practice my sewing and create something she'll love. My personal favorite is The Party Dress because it's perfect for both church or a backyard barbecue.
