I made this dress especially for my guest post on the ‘fun in the sun(dress)’ series on icandy handmade and would now love to share it with you.

It’s a simple A-line shift dress with scalloped neckline made out of several circles. It really is an easy and fast project, only the neckline takes some time and effort to finish, but it is definitely worth that.

The pattern is a Burdastyle size 36. Anyway, you could use any shift dress pattern in your size and copy the neckline on that. Hope you like it! :)

P.S.: Some seem to have difficulties to download the instructions in PDF. You can also download the instruction free as PDF here

    Love this dress, great fit, nice and simple.

    Made my first version here:http://surfjewels.tumblr.com/post/77090834295/candy-dress

    I am now part way through another version and have yet another planned.

    Thanks for the pattern.

    Where abouts should the darts in the bust have fallen? I made this dress and while I love it, I’m not convinced that I placed them low enough.
