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!

4. Peppermint Swirl Ladies Dress
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.Get the pattern »

5. The Billie Jean Dress
Teens who like vintage-style dresses will adore this pattern. It’s inspired by 1950s-style glamour. Two different versions of the dress are included; the one pictured here is the full skirt while the other version is a curve-hugging version.
