Jamie from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom has an amazing collection of free tutorials on her site. Here’s a link to just the Clothing + Accessories category! She wrote to share a couple of recent favorites, the Boho Maxi and the Modern Peasant.
Boho Maxi Dress:
This pattern is Jamie’s original design which is available as a free download on her blog in sizes 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8. She used a tie-dyed paisley print fabric from her local fabric store.
I was inspired to make this dress for my little girl. She had been requesting a long dress and when I saw this particular fabric at the fabric store, I knew it would be perfect as a summer maxi dress. There is a complete tutorial with quite a few pictures to help you sew a version of this dress. The tutorial includes instructions if someone would like to make a smaller or larger size.
Modern Peasant Dress:
This pattern is also from one of Jamie’s free tutorials. This is a “pattern re-mix” of the free peasant dress pattern available on her blog, available in sizes 12/18 months, 2t/3t and 4 to 7. She used a Riley Blake Chevron print and two other prints from her local fabric shop.
This particular dress design is part of my “pattern re-mix” series where I have used my Peasant Dress pattern and “re-mixed” it for different looks. So far, I have made a peasant dress with cascading ruffles, a tie front cardigan and the Modern Peasant version. (I have more looks planned.)
The fabric choices I made for this dress scream Spring/Easter. My daughter wore this dress for Easter and for our yearly bluebonnet pictures. (I made my son a coordinating bow tie using a easy little bow tie tutorial found on my blog as well.)
