    boy oh boy this is a lot of great info…i was SO excited to see a list of free patterns…but mostly they seem to be tutorials. it might be helpful to say “list of tutorials, some of which include patterns”. 😀

    i’m trying to make a top for a friend’s daughter…who lives about 6000 miles away (literally!), so i can’t use an existing item of clothing…rendering a lot of these tutorials a little less useful. 😀

    but thanks, nonetheless! i will still refer to this often.
