Sunset maxi-dress

Added Oct 17, 2011

by carolyn-s

Perth, Australia






Based loosely on Vogue 1355, an old ?90’s? pattern. I say loosely because I ended up making significant fitting and shaping changes…
The dress is cut on the bias and has no closure. It is of polyester chiffon, and has a lining dress of white cotton voile, also on the bias. All seams are French seams, the dress is hemmed with a black rolled hem on my overlocker, and the white voile underdress has a regular double folded hem.
I’m so ready for my poolside cocktail, and summer!

Material Notes

printed polyester chiffon, white cotton voile for the underdress




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Classic, Romantic
Chiffon, Cotton

    It looks gorgeous – especially against the stunning colour of that rock formation! Rock on summer.

    That looks amazing! Bias-cut dresses and chiffon both scare me, so this dress is doubly impressive to me.
