Classic summer dress

Added Feb 24, 2011

This wonderful little dress has a lovely deep scoop neck, sweet cap sleeves and just the right amount of gathering in the skirt.

It’s such a classic, summery look! I love that you can wear it with or without a belt.

I made the smallest size, which is still a little big on me making the bodice gape a little at the front, but I’ll fix that next time I make it. I also inserted an invisible zipper at the back of the garment rather than the side, as it’s a little easier to make back adjustments when I do this.

I’m definately going to make this pattern again!!

Material Notes

Black textured cotton with black voile lining.

    I’ve got about two week until I have my waist back (atleast moderately after childbirth!) and this is the first thing I want to make – thanks for being my inspiration – yous is flawless and looks perfect on you!

    What a beautifully simple dress! Very flattering and I love it with the little belt.

    I made this one too, and also had the issues with the neckline… It was also quite low for me. But I´m going to make it again, too :)
