I have seen the sewing patterns on Burda's website and am wondering if any of my fellow craftsters have sites that they regularly go to for free sewing patterns? I have also seen Amy Butler's free patterns, I am more interested in patterns for dresses, tops and skirts/pants.

Most are basic, some are awesome. I think all of them are print-at-copy-shop, however. All the ones I've downloaded are.

my mother in law gets Burda magazines, and has copied and filed all of the menu pages from them and bound them into 2 big books... lucky me!  Except I find Burda patterns SUCH a pain to copy off Sad  I like normal patterns that you just cut out!  lol   Wink

Manequim magazine, a publication out of Brazil and printed in Portuguese, offers a nice selection of clothing patterns for download:

The downsides are many of them are limited in size options and the directions are not in English. Upsides are the fashion forward and FREE patterns!

Now this is not free but have you considered checking your local thrift stores? I sometimes find some very good cheap ($0.25-0.30) patterns at my local thrift stores. The best ones to hit up are usually church run thrift stores as a lot of the older ladies who can no longer sew due to bad eyesight, arthritis etc. donate their old supplies to their church's thrift store. I also get alot of awesome 1960-1970's patterns from thrift stores if you are into vintage styles. Be sure to check the pattern to make sure it has all the pieces and instructions. Look into the good cause ones as they tend to get alot of donations and don't have rediculus pricing. The top three thrift stores here in my town is GCM (church run), Humane Society Thrift (animal shelter), and Peaceful Paths (domestic abuse). Best pricing and the first two have a good craft section. Check out The Thrifty Shopper for stores near you.
