I love sewing for all of my kids. I love sewing patterns since it makes it easier to get the right look. I really, really love free sewing patterns to try out a pattern designer and practice my sewing skills.

I’ve put a big list together of free dress patterns for girls. Some of these are for knit fabric and some of these are for woven fabric.

Some of these come in one size, and some of these come in multiple sizes. Some are for only little girls, and some are for older girls.

What is a PDF sewing pattern?

A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.

I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!

How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?

Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.

Once the pattern is printed it can be taped together to get the full size. Then the pattern can be cut for each pattern piece size or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again.
