When it was so hot I needed a dress that wouldn’t touch my skin too much —> no sleeves, low armholes, not tight
I used a pattern from the burda magazine but changed the back because I want to be able to wear something underneath that doesn’t have crossed straps or a racerback. For the skirt part I just used a gathered rectangle and added a pocket in the seam. Mh, seems I only left the front bust part the way it was.
