The first dresses i ever made were used with Missouri River patterns from crazycrow.
I don't use patterns anymore for my own things, and if you don't want to either, then get out the measuring tape and size the fabric to fit you, make sure it is cut just right also. What dress? T dress you can just fold over. If you want the "sleeve" types, then modify the T dress shape to be without the "sleeves", then attach fitted sleeves measured in the right shape.

One good trick is to go to secondhand clothing stores or rummage sales and get blouses or dresses that have the shapes that you want. You can take them apart and see how the necklines, sleeves, skirts, etc., should be cut out before they are sewn. I've also used the "parts" and sewn them to other parts--like taking the sleeves off a blouse and then sewing them to a T-dress that was cut without the sleeves. Good luck and with practice things will get easier.

If you are thinking about using the Simplicity pattern for a ribbon dress...

Men and Women Native American Costume Sewing Pattern 5446 Simplicity

Just be aware that the neckline in no way accommodates a real human being. The pattern is true to size (and good for a beginner sewer...) but you need to find a neckline you like (from an item in your closet), and make a pattern using THAT pattern. NOT hard. Otherwise you will choke.

For fancy, you can just do a skirt. A simple strait skirt with an elastic waistband and a ruffle is a good start for a beginning sew-er.

For your shawl, you can get a 2 yard long x 60 inch length of fabric and see if you want to customize the size before you hem it. (and decide if you want it doubled or single thickness...single you can get by with a 45 wide fabric) Then sew on a design and 1/4" ribbons (doubled) to whatever length you want (14" - 24"+)

For the cape and leggings, I would sketch out something, cut a rough pattern out of brown paper bag and see how it fits, and adjust from there. There are many types of capes, and shapes of leggings...and decide how you want them to fasten (or not).

I used that pattern to make a costume for a play for my daughter. It looked like a potato sack. The man's shirt is OK.

The Potato tribe is legendary. I knew one guy nicknamed "Couch". Kinda lazy.

Their best dancer was a guy called "Hot".

The town drunk was known as "Mashed".

Their ancestors came down from Idaho...
