Here are a few Haute-Couture free sewing patterns I came across. They are all offered through SHOWstudio.

Some are really intricate (the John Galliano jacket comes to mind) and instructions are minimal (do not expect a step-by-step with illustrations although some have instructions and other illustrations) but these patterns are really one of a kind : the designs are truly unique !

As a seamstress just seeing the flat patterns of such garments is a truly wonderful opportunity and great inspiration. But here we can also download the pattern, print it and have a go at sewing great designers’ creations.

Oh and of course… They come in only one size, so many of us will have to adjust the patterns for their own size.

A clarification : the patterns in themselves are not “haute-couture” in the French meaning of the word, most are from ready-to-wear collections. But some of the designers (Galliano, McQueen) have done Haute-Couture collections for renowned “maisons de couture” (Givenchy, Christian Dior).

Here are the beauties :
