Try thefoldline.com and indiesew.com- lots of downloadable patterns from indie designers. BAckstich.com also has a lot of patterns and you can search by downloadable only. I've just discovered tesutti.com in Australia as well though yet to download anything from there yet.

Thanks - I'll have a look

Lekala are all downloadable and you can customise them to the sizes you need, having said that the only one I bought from them wasn't that well thought out.

Thanks - DD wants a bra top!! NOW!!

Blasted child - actually she isn't that bad, just impatient

I made a velour leopard skin stretch pencil skirt & she wants a matching top for clubbing grin

Not what I thought I'd be sewing when I learnt in Home Ec all those years ago

Try Named Clothing and / or Papercut - downloadable. They both have skimpy tips and Swimwear so hopefully you can find something acceptable ( and appropriate ) to both you and DD smile!

There's a number of YouTube video to make really simple boob tubes.

This is the one Dd1 is going to copy - but she's got fabric rather than an old tshirt so will hem the bottom

That's really good !
I was going to post a link to the Verna Mini top on the Named Clothing website. ( but couldn't manage it confused)

Hope the boob tube works out smile

Getmeout that is perfect - I'll have a go at that one

Like yours Katz, but DD is bigger boobed so that won't work for her but it looks good

Have you at legal, they have lots to download, customised by your measurements.

imnotalpharius Sun 17-Apr-16 17:01:34

Not legal. Lekala.

Lekala is on my list to look at, thanks Lavendersun & imnotalpharius

They have free ones too!

By hand London are meant to be good, you can hash the dress top of one and put it onto another.

Oh I like some of them too

& Lekala is amazing - are the patterns good?
