Top Ten Dress Patterns for Spring

Warmer weather means that like me, you’re probably looking for new additions to your wardrobe! Here are my top ten dress patterns for Spring and Summer…

From all the beautiful new patterns that have just arrived, I’ve picked 10 of my absolute favourite dresses which are just perfect for the warmer weather.

There are styles to fit and flatter all body shapes, so it’s time for all of us to get our legs out and enjoy a little Spring sunshine! Ditch the jeans, tights and fluffy jumpers – it’s time for tea dresses, loose fitting florals and some strappy heels to match.

The Tall Ones

V-Neck Flutter Dress (Tall Size);

Knee Length Paneled Dress (Tall Size).






If you’re lucky enough to have legs for days, these two patterns are perfect for you. I adore the vintage-style flounce of the floral Flutter Dress (left), and the deep v-neck is just gorgeous. The Knee Length Paneled Dress is more formal – but oh-so comfortable when made in forgiving elasticated fabric.

The Curvy Ones

Carmen Dress (Plus Size);

Sheath Dress (Plus Size).







Knee length is a great style all round, but especially suits these waist-hugging dresses. The fitted waist on both dresses is really flattering, and I especially love how it contrasts with the loose top of the Carmen Dress (left). The 3/4 sleeves on the Sheath Dress, with their see-through lace, are just stunning.

The Little Ones

Piped-Seam Dress (Petite-Size);

Side Cascade Dress.







Above the knee dresses are a go-to style for short ladies and these two examples are perfect for Spring. The Piped-Seam Dress (in petite size) is beautifully fitted, and the Side Cascade Dress looks at first like a classic button-up blouse – but with a wonderfully unusual asymmetrical hem.

Everything In-between

Draped Neck Tunic Dress;

Tea Dress.








These four patterns are completely different in terms of style, but they’re all oh so pretty. I love the vintage feel of the Criss Cross Midi Dress (top left) and the Tea Dress (bottom right). The diagonal seams on the Seamed Shift Dress (top right) give a gorgeous layer of detail, and the boho look of the Draped Neck Tunic Dress (bottom left) is bang on trend.
