I’ve seen a few promos lately for a free downloadable Style Arc pattern if you join their mailing list. Since I’ve been sewing a lot of Style Arc patterns lately I thought I’d evangelize a bit and pass them along… I swear I’m not a shill for the company! I just really appreciate it when I find a company who puts out patterns with consistent sizing that actually look like the drawings/photos when you sew them up and that I don’t need to make a lot of adjustments to. Besides, you all like free patterns, right?!
The first offer is I saw in Threads magazine for a free stretch pant pattern:
Here’s the link from the ad to make it easier: http://www.stylearc.com/threads-promo/ A lot of people like the fit of the crotch of the older Linda pattern that this was based off of, so if you are struggling finding a good pants sloper I recommend trying this out.
And then today I noticed a banner on the Gorgeous Fabrics website for a free knit t-shirt pattern from Style Arc. Ann posted the details on her facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=10152666997698169&id=76955578168 Here’s what the top looks like – I love the side ruching.
The one thing I don’t like about Style Arc patterns is that you order one size only. I was hesitant about this at first, but I’ve been buying the same size every time based off the size chart and haven’t had a problem. I’m a pear shape so I buy according to the bust measurement even if my hips don’t quite fit in that range, and so far that’s been working well. Even with the pants patterns, I find erring on the smaller side for stretch pants is best. Both of these offers say that Chloe will email you 3 sizes grouped around the size you select, so this is a great chance to figure out your Style Arc size for free. Here’s a link to the size chart.
Both offers sign you up for the email list, but I usually get an email about every two weeks when new patterns come out. Nothing spammy. So… is anyone going to give either of these patterns a try? Sewing anything fun this weekend?
