Free Hospital Gown Patterns
This is Susie Stiving. Susie is who this free hospital gown pattern was made. Susie's friends made gowns from her favorite quilt fabrics for her long hospital stays and the gowns lifted her spirits.
We thought you might like to make a hospital gown for a loved-one. So, we have two free gown patterns available for your use.
Consider making a shawl, wrap or lap sized quilt to go along with the gown for times when a little more warmth is needed.
Size: The adult gown is one size fits all and should be comfortable for a size small to extra large adult female. The pattern will make a gown 38" in length from the shoulder at the neck to the bottom hem. For adults taller than 5' 6", we recommend lengthening the gown 3-6". Lengthening instructions are included in the pattern.
Prints on 10 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. *See Printing Note below.
Sizes: Children's gown pattern includes both a small size (approximately size 2-4) and a medium/large size (approximately size 6-10). Adjust accordingly.
Prints on 12 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. *See Printing Note below.
