FREE Summer Clothes Patterns for Kids

Summer is right around the corner & the temperature outside is already there: hot & sun-filled.  Dressing the kids is a challenge for many of us due to all the new hurdles surrounding what used to be basic shopping (both in-store & online), still being restricted to the house most of the time and trying to live on less income.  

I've started sifting through my fabric & outgrown clothes stashes and past used pattern to get a to-do list together for sewing as much of a summer wardrobe for the kids as I can to ease things a bit.  I thought a helpful start would be to compile some easy and FREE patterns available for kids of all ages, so anyone can join me in this sewing for summer effort.

Here are a few 

Easy Any Size Baby Bubble Romper.  I created this pattern with a free pdf for size 3-6 months and give step-by-step instructions for drafting any other custom size desired.  

Runaround Romper for babies.  This is my own pattern and it's sized for 12-24months (btw my now 27mos old still can wear it unaltered!), but can easily be tweaked to also fit 6-12 & 2T-3T.

Girls Ginger Shorties from Sew Like My Mom.  It covers size 12mos to kid's 16.  See my review HERE.

She also has this great unisex Sycamore Shorts pattern for sizes 12mos to kid's 8.

Easy & Free Knit Girl's Tank Nightgown by Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.  It offers sizes 3-16:

as well as this Girl's Apron Top in size 2T-6:

And this shirred waist Cover Up Skirt sizes 3 & up.

 Ester & Ebbe Kid's T-shirt from Threads By Caroline. It covers sizes 9mos to kid's 11 for boys and girls.

Ottobre Design offers this free Kid's Tank Top pattern.  It covers sizes 12-18mos to kid's 7.

Any Size Knit Play Dress.  The name kind of says it all.

Another any size design, my Easy Make Maxi Dress, is ideal for beating the heat:

My Sleeveless Sunday Girl's Dress.  The PDF file fits size 8-10, but can easily be tweaked down to a size 6 too.

And my new Sleeveless Sunday Tween Dress.  The PDF file fits tween girl's 10-14.

I'll continue to share any more free finds, as well as versatile inexpensive patterns too and some new goodies as I make them.  

Happy Sewing!
