Best FREE patterns with tutorials for Easter or spring dress'!

If you get started this weekend you have plenty of time to make an Easter dress or two (or 3?) for your little girls.  I looked through tons of free online patterns and tutorials to come up with a list of what I think are the best ones out there so you only have to go to one place to find the perfect dress' for Easter.  Most of these are fairly simple and all have a pattern or instructions to create the pattern so there is nothing to buy except the fabric and notions!   We chose the "Party Dress" by The Cottage Home and I already let the girls pick out their fabric.  I am looking forward to making them each a new dress for Easter.  I have never made them dress' before so this is exciting! Hope you find something special for your special little girls!

Reversible Ribbon Dress by Couturier Mommy
A very clear tutorial but asks for an A-line pattern.  Just use a simple dress in the size you want to make the pattern by folding it in half and tracing it with a seam allowance. Then put that pattern on folded material to cut out the A line dress.

Hi txcrochetgurl unfortunatly the author of that blog must have changed permission on that dress. You should open the link and from there contact the author of that blog. SOrry when I originally did this the link was open. good luck! lEt us know how it goes!
