One of our frequently asked questions is, what pattern do you use for dresses?
The simple answer is we use a lot of different patterns. My mom, who is a seamstress extraordinaire makes some super pretty dresses using patterns that I won’t touch.
I am mediocre on the sewing machine and prefer as few pattern pieces as possible. Plus I don’t do zippers and I try to stay away from buttons 🙂
Below are a couple easy patterns that I regularly use
I this #5531 may be discontinued because I can only find it for sale on etsy, but I did find a similar one that you could try.
Let me know if you give #6478 a try. I haven’t used it, but it looks very close to the one I do use.
For larger sizes I usually use the Butterick pattern below.
Depending on the fabric, sometimes I add a little trim to this pattern because it can look very plain.
We also accept dresses made from the pillowcase dress pattern. The following is a good tutorial.
We use the above patterns regularly, but will accept any sundress pattern you choose to use. It’s fun to have a variety of sizes and styles to ship.
Happy Sewing 🙂
