I’m busy preparing for an upcoming shoot and decided to make a custom dress to go with it. We’ve created our own clothing in the past (see here and here) with some patterns we’ve found, but I wanted to try out a new one for it. Whenever I need wisdom I reach out to our great community on Instagram and I’m never let down. You guys gave some amazing suggestions. So, if you’re also looking for some cute sewing patterns for dresses, here’s the list.
We’re going to split it into two posts because really, you came through!
Cute sewing patterns for dresses
I have to preface this list. This is not a comprehensive list of all the cute dresses out there. It’s a short list of dresses that I would want to wear right here right now. I have some pretty strict guidelines that I adhere to at this stage in my life (post-baby but still looking like I’m with child–ha!). 1) I like my dresses loose–not form fitting 2) with maybe a puffed sleeve 3) pockets 4) either midi or maxi. Not all these dresses fit the bill 100% but I included some to round up the options.
The ones below are the ones I’m considering for my project. I’ll make a longer list of cute dress patterns in a follow-up post. There are a lot of great options!
