Sewing for Children - Free Patterns

This weekend has been filled with sewing.   Both of my little ones have had growth spurts, particularly my little Mr, so it started with a search for boys clothes patterns and ended with four dresses, a pair of super cute box pleat shorts and plans to get around to trying some of these boys clothes patterns and learning screen printing as a collective (team little miss, little mr and me).

Of the resources below I have used Angela of Crafting Zuzzy's beautiful Box Pleat Shorts tutorial with the pattern made from a pair of shorts that fit well.

Here are some great resources for free patterns and tutuorials:
