There’s a running joke in my house that if it’s the night before Easter, I’m holed away in my sewing room frantically trying to finish up my girl’s Easter Dresses.  I have YET one year to finish early.

Sewing Easter Dresses for my girls has always been one of my ALL TIME favorite sewing projects, I’ve done it for 18 years now and think I’ll never tire of it.

50+ Easter Dresses to Sew for Girls

I’m sharing with you more than 50 ideas for Easter Dresses for girls that you can sew. Each of the items on this list is a finished dress and includes information about the patterns used to create the dresses. Many of these dresses were made a few years ago and the exact fabric used may no longer be available but you should be able to find a fabric with a similar aesthetic easily.

The list is broken down into two categories. Dresses with made from purchased sewing patterns and dresses made from free dress tutorials.

Many of the girls dress patterns below, below I have sewn myself. If you click the links it will take you either to the dress I made or to the pattern itself. Many of these dresses have also been shared by some of my favorite sewing blogs.

If it is a dress that I have made I share in the related post my observations, tips, and ideas for sewing that particular dress pattern.

The difference is that the saying was, “If it’s Easter morning, Mom is in her sewing room…” Many, many times when we traveled halfway across the country to visit my in-laws at Easter, I actually had to bring my sewing machine with me. Wish my daughters weren’t 36 and 40…I’d love to make some of these dresses; they’re adorable.
