The Alcoy Dress – Free Pattern!


This post may include affiliate links. See my full disclosure here.

Looking for the perfect women’s shirt dress sewing pattern? Look no further! The Alcoy Dress is a raglan (baseball) style knit dress designed to be the quickest way to get dressed in the warmer months. Make one in just an afternoon and then throw on and go, any day of the week! Sewing knits doesn’t have to be scary; download this pattern and whip one up in no time. Best of all, it’s FREE!


Hey all!  I’ve got a brand spanking new pattern for you all today!  Woo-hoo!

It’s called The Alcoy Dress and it’s a fitted knit dress with raglan style sleeves.  I’ve made about 5 so far and I’m hooked!  It’s flattering, comfortable and…best of all, takes less than 2 hours to whip up!


You can make it in a pretty textured ponte like this white one, or in a more casual jersey with contrast sleeves like the Aztec print dress below.



Wanna hear the best part??  The Alcoy Dress is free!!  I wanted to create something of real value for my readers since you guys are the reason I’m doing this.  So I created this pattern, with all the details and features of my regular paid patterns but without the price tag.

Just head to the pattern shop to download it.




Once you get your copy of the pattern and sew it up, be sure to share it on social media using the hashtags #BonnieandBlithePatterns and #AlcoyDress.  Feel free to send your friends over here to the blog to get their free pattern too!  Just please don’t share the link to the pattern itself.

Thank for you being here and I can’t wait to see your Alcoy Dresses!

      Hi Rebekah! You can use just about anything that’s thick enough to give you good coverage when it stretches over your bottom! My favorites are cotton lycra and cotton spandex with a rib knit for the neckband. Just be aware that if you use something with a smaller amount of stretch, you may need to size up 1 or 2 sizes.

    I received the free pattern, thank you so much for sharing. But for some reason I cannot print in one size by itself. I don’t see the tiled option.
