Hello -

It is great to see that this post-thread is still going Smiley - I even found my originally post about where to get free patterns from way back when, I thought I would add to the list a little something I found in one of my old craft books from the 1940's and blogged about last month- enjoy!  Wink

Hello

How wonderful that this post is still being added to from when it first started March 22, 2007, there has been so many lovely contributions I have found it very usefull and helpful, I felt the need add too.

I am not sure if these links are already on here, as there is a lot of pages to go through to check so I apologise if I am repeating .

The first is from http://www.bernina.com/3series/en/pattern.html   there are 4 dresses that can be lengthen or depending on the fabric you can wear when the weather is cooler.
There is also a lovely collection of craft patterns

The second links is direct to Burdatstyle German website: you will need to register to access the pattern download and it will take you through the process as if you were purchasing a pattern download with payment, although there is no charge at the end, you could possibly get the page translated via a search engine to make it easier http://www.burdastyle.de/schnittmuster/schnitte-aus-dem-heft/

The instructions are in German, if  you can read German then great, otherwise  if you can get it translated, then please do so, or  if you are use to pattern pieces, you could do what I do sometimes and  get by working out where the pieces go  or by using English instructions from a similar pattern, an empire styled dress for instance or a  good how to sew book can work in some cases- this is just a tip for  what I do if I am drafting or working from Patrones , La Mia  Boutique, Burda, this is an example of what I mean: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/burda-germany-dress-pattern-download or any other non English language patterns.

It always good new learning for me, sometimes I get use to certain words I dont need to translate them as with a lot of links there could be a time limit before there are removed from the website as I have found in the past.

Have fun stay creative d*

bye-
