With summer quickly approaching, all women are looking for the perfect go-to summer outfit. I know I am anyway. I’ll admit that I’m a dress girl, especially during the summer months, when I’m looking for something simple, elegant, and effortless. After all, who wants to be stuck in the heat wearing jeans and a clingy t-shirt? Dresses are the best way to look put together without putting in a lot of effort and this collection of stylish and easy-to-make free dress patterns is the solution you need to look cool and collected during the summer season.
But what is an outfit without some chic accessories? I’ve paired every dress pattern with a complimentary and free bag or purse pattern so that you’re completely covered ensemble-wise, whether you’re at the beach, running errands, or out shopping with the girls. These sew-easy patterns are must-haves for your summer wardrobe!
I’ve made sure to focus on the three most popular dress patterns for summer: classic sundresses, trending shift and day dresses, and of course, the ever-popular maxi dress. Have fun choosing which dress and purse pattern is the perfect fit for you!
