Description

I miss summer so much!!! So I decided to make a summer dress. Red with a little twisty design, empire-ish waist and cap sleeves, white thread for contrast and matching the small print. There you go!

Material Notes

The fabric I used (linen) is very crisp. I’m thinking of making another dress like this one with a cotton-like fabric that drapes better.

    Great color combination. I agree that more drape in the fabric would probably make it look even better, though.

    The dress is truly beautiful on you! In Germany I am missing the summer, too! Did you use a pattern? I am thinking about sewing it with a cherry fabric…

      Oups, I forgot to mention what pattern I used.. It’s Butterick B5350. It was truly easy to make and I can think of so many ways to make it differently. Have fun making your own dress!
