52 Free Dress Patterns Posted on | November 7, 2013 | 19 Comments I’m a firm believer that sewers can never have too many free patterns. With that in mind, here are 52 Free Dress Patterns, divided by style. Notes about the patterns are listed for some of the dresses. Patterns from existing dresses require laying out an item of clothing onto fabric, marking it, and cutting out. No pattern needed usually means that the dress is made from a recycled shirt. Drafting instructions means that you will have to make your own pattern, but the designer included all the information needed.

Sewing A Peasant Dress I’ve had several requests for an explanation of how the peasant dress underneath the apron dress and tab-front dress is made. Honestly, it's so dead easy I’m almost embarrassed to tell you how to do it. (But I will anyway:) Here goes: The green dress was made from one yard of fabric. Iron your fabric and straighten the cut ends. To cut out the dress: Decide on the depth of the ruffle, then add ½” for a narrow hem and enough for a seam allowance at the top. Decide how long you want the sleeves to be. What you have left will become the front and back of your dress. To construct the dress: Join the ruffle together to make one continuous strip. Turn under ¼” twice on top and bottom of the large block (dress) and small block (sleeves) and hem. Cut the dress piece in half, lengthwise, as shown in the pattern layout. From each of the four pieces you now have, cut the top corners. You may have to experiment with this length. Now sew the whole thing up, making a square. That’s it. ~Erin~
Dragon dress My Dragon dress!!!! I can't say how much I love this dress. I saw the fabric at the fabric store and knew I had to make a dress. I love the shape of the skirt I wore it to a friends memorial because it reminded me of him and it was a huge hit. Tute:Fabric: I used three yards and had some left over...I'm 6'0 so most people will need a bit less.Zipper: Whatever length you feel comfortable with. *To start measure from your waist (bellybutton or smallest part of your torso) to about how long you want the skirt of your dress to be and add an inch. Fold in half and snip the parts that are a little uneven so you have a nice looking slope. This is the basic shape you want to cut out for the dress top. Measure the widest part of your bust and cut your piece that long. Here are the first set of darts. Close up. The second set of darts. This is around what the new shape should look like after both sets of darts on either side. Find the center of the skirt and the top and the back. Sew across.

Here are the pieces (including the interfacing, not including the sleeping dog) you should have: Step 3: Next, open the folded strip, wrong side facing you. And all the way:
TUTORIAL and PATTERN: Kid Pants, the basic pants Welcome to our series on KID PANTS. All the styles that are shared are adaptable to any size pants….from babies up to adults; for boys and girls. We’ll show you the ins and outs of making pants and we’ve got a downloadable pattern for size 2-3 toddler. Today we’re starting with the Basic Pant, with an elastic casing waistband.

Pants are made of 4 pieces (2 different pattern pieces).

And that’s all you need to understand about pants. First, you need a pattern. What I love about this pattern: * Style and comfort.
Summer of Skirts - Elastic A-Line Tutorial This skirt is great, because it is almost as easy as the 20 minute skirt but is more flattering and versatile. I plan on making many more of these! It's also worth noting that my current giveaway (enter to win if you haven't already!) dress features this type of skirt. What you need:-elastic - enough to fit around your waist; i prefer 3/4 inch for skirts-1 yard of fabric if you normally wear a small/medium, maybe a little more if you are large and up- a yardstick or newspaper or something with a long straight edge Step 1: Cut along the fold of your fabric, so you have two pieces with the cut fold on one end and the selvage on the other. Step 2: Now you have a little bit of math to do. Step 4: Then, put your yardstick/newspaper/whatever at each of these marks, so you have a diagonal across the fabric. Step 5: You should know have four pieces of fabric. Step 6: This part is optional, but it will make hemming a whole lot easier. Step 7: Sew the skirt panels together.
