Though I do sew quite a lot for myself and for the little man in my life, to me nothing beats sewing dresses for little girls… These dresses usually take little time to sew, take little fabric and the result is sooo sweet! So, with summer approaching fast – or at least supposed to approach any day now, it's still cold over here in the Netherlands – I selected the fifteen cutest free dress patterns for little girls.
Some of the patterns listed below are full on pdf patterns, such as the Popover Dress by Oliver+S, others, such as the Vintage Heirloom Dress and the Simple Ruffled Sundress, are tutorials, so no pattern pieces are included. However, the tutorials clearly explain what to do and how to create your pattern pieces, so no need to stay away from them.
Some of the patterns, such as the peasant dress by Sew Much Ado, are meant for babies, others are for toddlers and upwards. However, all of them are so cute! I'm planning to make some of the baby ones as gifts, since I've left that stage behind me now, but the toddler ones will be very useful for our tiny blondie, who's right in the middle of her terrible two's…
The Janneke Dress, by Sisko by Mieke, is available in Dutch only. However, it was too nice to pass by and the tutorial has many photos to explain the process, so it is definitely doable for slightly experienced sewists. Just make sure you go through the tutorial all the way to the end before cutting into your fabric, to avoid stumbling onto unexpected difficulties along the way…

Hi Maricel, I will be delighted to make a patter for your daughters, how old/size are they? and will you be willing to take pictures in daylight to be able to put them in the article?
I found a pattern in a store that is handmade by someone. My son just had preemie twin girls. I just want something easy cause they will out grow them… they weigh 4# 13 ounces and 4# 3 ounces I have a picture but don’t know how to send it. It’s an A-line dress straps button to the front and it has a separate lining someone said it looks like your Preemie Pinafore dress going home outfit. Also, can you tell me how to download your burp cloth pattern. Am I suppose to download something so I can download your patterns?
My daughter was preemie, so I am quite familiar with dressing such tiny girl. Do send me the picture by email (email@example.com), I will be happy to make the pattern for you.
I haven’t made any little girl dresses my grandchild has just turned 1. I am not really a sewer but I would like to try. I don’t have any little girl patterns.
