The Avid Seamstress – The Sun Dress Sewing Pattern

The Sun Dress Sewing Pattern makes a beautiful dress that is perfect for all year round.   It looks great in the warmer months when you need a dress that‘s smart enough for the office yet stylish enough for weekend brunch. Throw a casual jacket or cardigan over the dress when the weather is cooler.

Team it with some luxury fabric and you‘ll also have your go-to formal dress for a range of occasions from wedding guest to evening events.

The Sun Dress sewing pattern features a fitted bodice with a square neckline, wide modern straps and a button-down front. The bodice has a front side dart and the back a waist dart. A pleated skirt with pockets offers a fun, flattering silhouette as well as comfort and practicality for your day-to-day activities.

The wide skirt hem finishes the look. The dress is fastened by a concealed zipper at the back.

Pattern sizes – UK 6 – UK 22
