Top 10 Simple Dress Sewing Patterns

Dresses are the perfect garment for every occasion. You can wear them at home, at the office, on dates, and at dinner parties. They are complete outfits all by themselves, are much more comfortable than pants or jeans, and they will make you look more stylish than any other piece of clothes. Not to mention it only takes a few seconds to get dressed and you’re all set to go.

It’s a fact that we women can never have enough dresses (just like shoes) and sometimes buying a new one is not an option. Oftentimes they can be quite expensive and we find it hard to find one that will fit our figure and taste. So we end up spending hours at the mall and we still leave empty-handed and empty-hearted.

So, for all those women who don’t want to spend money on new clothes, but want to look fashionable and comfortable at the same time, we’ve made a list of the top 10 modern dresses with sewing patterns. Explore these patterns from ten various sources and learn how to sew dresses that are pretty and that will fit you perfectly.

Good luck and have fun!
