We selected the cutest free summer dress patterns for your little Princess.
Patterns were chosen on the following:
- Do-ability (can I make it?)
- Availability (of the pattern) and
- Aha-ability (a vision of how my little cutie will look dressed in it!)
Here is our list of some free & easy dress patterns:
A colourful, contrast Peasant dress is our first choice from . The post contains instructions to create your pattern and a picture tutorial to make the dress. If you like Boho, this pattern is for you!
Stretch fabric is ideal for children's clothes and our second recommendation, is a 38-page E-book, including the patterns and tutorial to make a dress from 3 months to 14 years. It is a German site, but you will be able to follow the picture instructions. Follow this link to understand European clothing sizes.
Jessica of Me sew crazy, explains how to make a knit heart dress. If you follow her pictures, you will realise that there is really nothing too difficult in the process! The end result is too-hearty!
I just admire someone who can take inspiration from a piece and copy it! Jess of Craftiness is not optional (very appropriate) has done just that with a dress from Anthropologie. The addition of elastic and a covered button makes this dress something unique.
Make it, love it re-purpose a t-shirt into an adorable dress! She added a braided 'headband' as a collar. The aha factor of the dress and model are contagious! A must make...

I suspect the pinafore-type sundress looks more complicated to make than it really would be. There is not a full tutorial or a pattern available. However, the overall look inspires. The pictures has been shared on Pinterest thousands of times, making it a very popular pattern.
My little Megan loves the Rainbow dress! I have personally not attempted shirring before, but Rae of Made by Rae makes it look soo easy. Little girls like spinning around in their dresses and with the layered skirt, this one is no exception!
A lovely variation on the pillowcase dress is one with a crochet bodice. If you can not sew or crochet, don't worry. Anna Phelps helps you out with a complete video. I can just imagine how lovely my little Princesses will look in one of these, it is sure going on my to-do list!
Make a Kimono dress (wrap dress) following the instructions from the Dutch blog and her link to a picture tutorial.
