5 fabulous free summer dress knitting patterns for girls

Summertime, and the living is easy. These 5 free patterns are just divine. Make these dresses for the little girl in your life and you’ll be sure to be her favorite family member! And for more inspiration why not explore our entire collection of dresses.

River Dress by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne

Sweet, sweet, sweet! This little pop-over dress would be perfect for a warm day or with a long-sleeved tee when it’s cool outside. Knitted here in Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, this little dress would knit beautifully in a cotton dk, like Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK or Rico Baby Cotton Soft DK – both would be cool and comfy to wear in the warm weather! The pattern is for one size – age 2-3 years.

Flore Dress by Phildar


We love this pretty cotton summer dress with sweet ruffle features. The pattern is sized from 6 months to 4 years, and is knitted in Phildar Phil Coton 3, a sport weight cotton that is so kind to skin and cool to wear! Phil Coton 3 comes in 54 gorgeous shades, and you can either knit this sweet dress in two colours, or make it in a single shade.

Spotty Dress by BC Garn

spotty dress

In four sizes, from 4 to ten years, this sweet spotty dress is cool and comfy to wear when the weather is hot! An ideal little cover-up to pop on over a swimming costume, because the 4ply cotton will dry nice and fast too. This little beauty can be knitted in any 4ply cotton – we love DMC Natura Just Cotton, in 65 gorgeous shades.

Tropical Swing Tank by Paintbox Yarns


This sweet Tropical Swing Tank could easily double up as a little summer dress, to wear with bare legs or little shorts. Knit in Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK to keep things cool – and choose shades that your little poppet loves the best!

Perfect Sundress by Lion Brand


This darling little pop-over is a sweet cotton dress that you can just ‘pop over’ a little head – gorgeous for days at the beach or in the park, or running around the garden! Knit in your favourite aran/worsted weight cotton – we love Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran – and trim the edges, neckline and pocket tops in a fun contrast!
