5 FREE Party Dress Patterns for the Holidays

It’s that time of the year — when hubbies don’t get why we can’t be ready for an party on time. It’s because we don’t have anything to wear in our closets… or is that just me?

Let’s get ready for every holidays party by sewing a celebration-worthy wardrobe!

The dresses I chose all come with a free pattern and can be all dressed up or down, depending on fabric choices and how much bling factor you add!

1. The Maxi Dress

This one can be put together in a very short time, but don’t be fooled by the fact it’s easy to make. Omit the stripes and go with a sparkly golden fabric or an art-deco print and you’ll be the life of the party!

2. The Mod Dress

If you are headed to a ’60s-inspired night, you can’t miss the Mod Dress. It’s actually made by refashioning a pair of pants and an oversized T-shirt (but you can use fabric by the yard). Match it with an infinity scarf (instructions included), made using up the small fabric leftover.

3. The Little Black Dress

This one-shoulder lace dress is perfect for being the star at your office’s holiday party. Why not play with two different colors, for a intriguing color-blending effect? I would try a burgundy for the under layer and a pale gray for the chiffon or mesh overlay.

4. The Dress With a Bow

This dress is probably the most versatile of today’s selection: With just one (free) pattern, you can create a perfect everyday dress and a dressy evening dress, all in one color.

The flattering skirt is cut on the bias, so it flows from the hips. The bow plus and front bodice are cut in one pattern piece. I would sew it in a textured shiny black fabric, to add some subtle interest. 

Sorry this one was removed. Let us know in the comments if you see it elsewhere!

5. The Brasilia Dress 

I was so lucky to be asked to test this dress, designed by HouseofPinheiro’s Patterns before it was published. The original design, including the Y-shaped front dart, makes this simple dress look original and unique. In my version, I added contrasting topstitching and faux piping to finish the armholes and neckline (made using an old T-shirt).
