UPDATED! January 2019
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?!
Many people swear by their flat butt pant pattern. And sometimes Style Arc will offer a similar pant pattern for free so be sure to check. 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.
Here’s a few patterns they be offered for free in prior months.
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. The free offer 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.
And, since this update they are now selling on Amazon, great for those with Amazon Prime. Any of the 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?
