In summer, a loose, easy to wear summer day dress is essential for most women. The Lavender Top & Summer Dress PDF Sewing Pattern is designed to fit loosely at your bust and hips for maximum floatiness but comes with a belt for cinching it in at the waist to still keep it figure-flattering.
Pockets: To make it a practical dress, suitable for everyday wear, it, of course, has pockets!
Adjustable shoulder ties: With the tie straps, you can also adjust the neckline to sit at the most comfortable level for you.
Lots of variations: Lavender comes in multiple lengths and with a ruffle variation. This is the maxi length dress sewn up in a crepe, featuring pockets.
Adjustable waist tie: The belt is held in place by belt loops inserted in the side seams.
Elasticated ruffles: The ruffles are elasticated at the parts cover the arms to prevent them from slipping down or cutting into your arms. When you make this version, you will notice that you can wear it in multiple ways, since you can wear it strapless, and you can even pull up the ruffles to cover your shoulders!
Facing: Lavender is not lined but has a facing dropping down below your bust to allow for a bit more coverage there.
