Find your next favorite pattern from this list, then show that indie pattern company some love by buying a few patterns, too!
Free Patterns for Dresses
Bowen Dress by Kim Sisson for Peppermint Magazine. Sometimes you just want to be comfy, you know? This dress is the comfiest, AND it has pockets! I think it would look marvelous sewn from vintage bedsheets.
Agnes Swing Top and Dress by Halla Patterns. There are so many possible variations to this pattern! If you like it, also check out the Bliss Dress pattern for a similar number of options for customizing.
Get It Together Dress by PSCo Patterns. This is a great dress pattern to master because it’s so easy to dress up or down depending on the fabric choice. I also really like their Tegan Tiered Dress pattern.
The Perfect Dress by Rosery Apparel. This dress pattern also includes a video tutorial to walk you through the construction. The Pansy Pattern is another good choice by the same company.
Milana Dress by Viki Sews. Okay, free patterns do NOT have to be basic! This is not a beginner’s pattern, but dang, is it beautiful! If you love it, check out the Viki Sews formalwear pattern collection.
Claudine Dress by Paulinessence. I love this comfy-looking dress, and the one-size pattern means that you don’t have to fuss with sizing. For something more fitted, try the Flora.
Robe Rea by Blanche x Blanche. The Robe Rea is among the easier to sew dress patterns here, with the belt adding much of the fitted structure. To try sewing a more fitted look, check out the Robe Alisson.
Coastal Coverup by George + Ginger. It’s sooooo flowy! If you like this pattern and want another summery look, try the Dawning Dress, also by George + Ginger.
Valley Knit Skater Dress and Top by Sinclair Patterns. This skater dress pattern has neckline and sleeve options, as well as a separate top pattern. If you like it, also check out the Nyoka Crossover Dress/Top and Iris Raglan Swing Top/Dress patterns.
Bailen Top or Dress by Pauline Alice Patterns. I love a versatile pattern! Use this same pattern to make either a top or a dress with the same cut. If you like this pattern, also check out the Eliana or Calvari dress patterns.
Orchard Top or Dress by Helen’s Closet. Here’s another pattern than can be sewn into either a dress or a top. Both feature spaghetti straps and are super light and flowy. If you like this pattern, also check out the March Top and Dress and the Reynolds Top and Dress by the same company.
Laundry Day Tee by Love Notions. You can make an entire wardrobe thanks to all the options included in this pattern set. If you like it, the Cadence Dress and Top has many of the same types of pattern options.
Spring Dress by Schnittquelle. This beautiful, classic dress has added interest at both the neck and bottom hem. I also really like their Schnittmuster Dress Sorel.
Patsy Party Dress by Rebecca Page. This dress has a beautifully classic look, and is a great way to test the waters of sewing formalwear. If you love it, Rebecca Page offers a variety of formalwear sewing classes and patterns.
Phoebe Party Dress by Rebecca Page. Here’s another formal dress option by Rebecca Page.
Milton Pinafore by Just Patterns for Peppermint Magazine. The jumper-style dress is a remnant of my childhood, and I can always get down with just one more variation! I always wore boring T-shirts or turtlenecks under my childhood jumpers, but I love the idea of pairing this one with a blouse with puffy sleeves. Lean into the retro!
Lounge Gown by George + Ginger. This dress pattern is intended as a swimsuit coverup, but could work for a super casual hang-out. For a similar style with a more formal look, check out the Vision Dress pattern by the same company.
Orla Dress by French Navy Patterns. I especially love the slightly gathered skirt–it’s such a fun detail! If you like this pattern, also check out the Morningside Shirt and Dress by the same company.
Free Patterns for Rompers, Jumpsuits and Sets
Playsuit by In the Folds for Peppermint Magazine. I was always jealous of how comfy my little kids looked in their summer playsuits. Now I can join them!
Phoebe Freebie Jumpsuit by Pattern Union. It’s impressive for a pattern this involved to be free. And to make it even better, there are TONS of options for customizing it! You can also buy a bib add-on to turn your jumpsuit into overalls.
Harlow Pajamas by Charm Patterns. This vintage-style pajama pattern is adorable but not too mitchy-matchy.
Pyjamas by The Assembly Line. This classic-look pajama set is cute and comfy and can be sewn from a variety of soft fabrics. If you like this pattern and want to try more by the same company, also check out the Wide-Leg Jumpsuit or Maxi Jumpsuit.
