Hot Summer High Waist Dress

Added Jul 10, 2017

Mykolayv, Ukraine






An ideal pattern for the hottest days. Despite a high waist is not my favourite feature this dress caught the eye from the first sight. I must admit that all the issue is great and it is already the third pattern I used from it. I didn’t make any modifications except lengthening the dress although I have few tips for the sewing here .
The dress is very feminine without tight fitting around hips. Thanking to that I feel comfortable in hot days (besides, thanking to the construction of the bodice, a bra isn’t needed here what is not bad as well:-))

The jewelry was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Stretch linen for the dress and cambric for the lining.

    I just made this and once getting the bodice properly fitted it really is a hot summer gem. The built in bra is excellent. and the voluminous skirt portion is cool. I am of a certain age and added sleeves, but it shows off the good stuff and hides the rest. Not the easiest sew, but I have made several of the bodices for summer support tops. Very flattering is your version!
