FREEkin' Sewing Challenge 2019

August 03, 2019

It’s back! After last year’s amazing success of the first edition of the Misusu Patterns FREEkin’ Sewing Challenge, we decided to bring this fun sewing contest back! And in true FREEkin’ Sewing Challenge tradition, we’re kicking the challenge off with the release of a new FREE pattern - the Geo Tank Top!


If you're looking for a classic wardrobe staple with a little twist, the Geo tank top might just become your go-to pattern this summer! The main feature of this tank top is the square cut set in armbands in 3 different styles. The top comes with a modern high crew neck option or a classic scoop neck and with 2 length options.This pattern also includes an optional full bust adjustment. You can download this pattern for free, with the code in the pinned post in our Facebook group!

But it’s not only about the Geo tank top, this challenge is about all our free patterns! So how to enter? Download a free pattern from our webshop and create an awesome look in one of the following 3 categories:


BEST HACK / MASHUP
Combine a free Misusu pattern with another (Misusu or other brands) pattern for a creative mashup or design your own pattern hack!
Share your makes on social media using the hashtags: 
#besthackmashup & #misususewingchallenge
 

BEST UPCYCLE
