Best Sewing Patterns for Back to School

My kids are now officially one month away from back to school. The summer has gone so quickly! If you enjoy sewing new clothes for the new school year, it's time to get to work. Read on to find the best kid's sewing patterns for back to school! Make sure not to miss the FREE printable planning worksheet!

Grand Slam Tee

A unisex raglan t-shirt? Sign me up! I bought this pattern ages ago, and it's great to have an easy go-to shirt or dress. Raglan sleeves are SO fast to sew. Bonus, you can mix and match leftover knits and have contrast sleeves!

Rebecca Page Brooklyn Joggers

Another pattern that works for girls or boys, the Brooklyn Joggers from Rebecca Page are the highest form of comfort. There are some days when my youngest kiddo refuses most pants, but I can almost always count on her to agree to joggers.

Rio Racerback

My kids start school in early August, so I know it's still going to be pretty hot for the first month. The Rio Racerback Tank and Dress from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop is super cute, and the swing hem makes it easy to fit. 

If you make the dress, it's going to fit forever as your child grows and it becomes a top. The two that I made for my girls when they were itty bitty are still going strong as stuffed animal clothes now.

Woodstock Swing Tee (free!)

Another swing style silhouette (can you tell what my kids like?), the Woodstock Swing Tee is more of the tween size range (6-16). The best part is that it's FREE! I often make myself a Union St. Tee (also from Hey June Handmade) and then use the leftover fabric for a Woodstock for my kids.

Oxford Button Up

In case you have a kiddo who likes to dress a little more fancy than t-shirts, you need the Oxford Button Up. With 100+ 5 star reviews you can't go wrong. You have to admit, kids look adorable with collared shirts, amiright? Even my middle daughter likes wearing a collared shirt, unbuttoned, on top of a tank top.

K2 Pullover

Look a little ahead for fall and whip up a K2 Pullover from 5 Out of 4 Patterns. A quarter zip and fleece combine for the perfect nicer-than-a-hoodie pullover. I made one of these this winter and we reached for it a lot for car rides, it's not as bulky as a lot of other outerwear.

The K2 Pullover can be colorblocked, plain, with pockets or without. Tons of options and another great scrap buster!

Rowan Tee (free!)

Another excellent free pattern, the Rowan Tee is even faster than the Woodstock if you omit the long sleeves. This is my go-to pattern for applying heat transfer vinyl, especially for those last-minute spirit days at school.
