8 Twirl-Worthy Homecoming Dress Patterns

Homecoming Dress Sewing Patterns

Depending on the school dress code, teen homecoming dress patterns could be anything from a simple cotton dress to a semi-formal frock.

You don’t need couture sewing skills to make a homecoming dress pattern; you can turn even the simplest silhouette into something twirl-worthy on the dance floor if you choose the right fabric and accessories! (A little tulle to fluff up the skirt never hurts, either.)

If you spot a homecoming dress pattern you love in this collection but it doesn’t fit the dress code, save it for another school dance!

Add extra flounce to your dance-floor twirls! This pattern is an add-on to create a variation of the designer’s Cherry Cosmopolitan Dress. The Cherry Cosmopolitan Dress is a good homecoming dance dress choice, too, if you prefer a skirt that isn’t quite as full as this one.
