In today’s post, we are going to give you some suggestions on patterns you can sew to celebrate International Sewing Community Day with us. The party garment you make doesn’t necessarily have to be a dress. You can make anything you like! Here’s our suggestions:
Ultimate Shift Dress by Sew Over it
We both made millions of versions of this pattern and love it to death. Make it in a sparkly fabric and you are instantly ready for a party!
Alex Shirtdress by Sew Over It
A very easy shirt dress that you can whip up in a few hours. Features a high low hem and is easy to style up or down.
Burda Style 6806
A gorgeous midi dress which you can also lengthen into a maxi if you prefer that style. Features a square neckline that adds a nice detail.
Emma dress by Sew Over It
A true wardrobe staple that you can easily style up for a fancy event. Easy to make and even easier to wear.
Florence dress by Sew Over It
This dress has a long and a short version, but it’s the mandarin collar that makes it so unique.
Eve dress by Sew Over It
We both adore this pattern and made so many of them last summer. Try lengthening it to a maxi dress to turn it into a more glamorous outfit.
Portobello Trousers by Nina Lee London and a simple Coco top by Tilly and the Buttons
As you can probably tell, we are both dress fanatics, but sometimes a pair of trousers can be even better for a special occasion. Make the Portobello trousers in a luxurious crepe fabric and pair it with a simple top like the Coco for a stylish outfit.
Betty dress by Sew Over It
Nothing says party dress better than the classic Betty. Featuring a full skirt, it will make you want to dance all night long.
Elsie dress by Sew Over It
Another classic party dress with a box pleat skirt (that you can also make on its own if you prefer skirts than dresses). Wear it with a petticoat to make it more voluminous.
Butterick by Gertie B6453
This was the most popular dress of last summer. Features two versions, one with a pencil skirt and one with a full skirt. Perfect for those who love working with stable cotton fabrics.
