Free Mood Fabrics Patterns

Mood Fabrics has a really really terrific website with five star fabrics and – woot! – free sewing patterns. Lots of cosplay patterns, so if you’re into that, check it out.

Here’s some of the stuff I like:

The Gardenia Skirt

The Cuphea Shawl


Two Piece Prom Dress

(The skirt is also the same as an Indian Lehenga Choli pattern, a few links below for inspiration)

All of the above are from www.

The prom dress skirt is basically a half circle skirt.

You can use Mood Fabric’s Circle Skirt Calculator if you want a 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or full circle skirt and need yardage calculations.






It’s been a busy few months.

I finally finished my first skirt (and wore it out to dinner!!). It looks fabulous!! (if you don’t look too closely). Pictures coming soon.

I bought a Craftsy class called The Ultimate T-Shirt with Marcy & Katherine Tilton (the duo behind the Vogue tshirt patterns I like so much).

I liked the class so much I bought other Craftsy classes:

Learn to Quilt: Charming Baby Quilt
with Amy Gibson

Sewing Swimsuits: The Supportive One-Piece
with Beverly Johnson

Tailoring Ready-to-Wear
with Angela Wolf

I bought a few sewing patterns while the Vogue sale was going on:
