The Clara

This floral beauty from Sew Liberated is full of fun and freedom. The breezy movement of this A-line cut is effortlessly elegant. The elastic waistband ensures comfort. After making the dress, enjoy an afternoon picnic or frolic through a garden — enjoy all the compliments your creation will get.

Miz Mozelle

The Miz Mozelle pattern by Jamie Christina mixes baby doll cuteness with retro style. The keyhole at the collar adds edgy spice to the otherwise sweet construction of the dress. This dress pattern offers tons of style versatility when it comes to fabric selection and color. I'm a fan of this piece in white with black trim. Chic!

The Washi Dress

Once August rolls around, the summer heat becomes tough to bear. The Washi dress is exclusively made for lightweight cotton that allows the breeze to cool your skin. This dress pattern ranges from a sleeveless tunic to a maxi dress with optional additions like a Peter Pan collar or hanging sailor bow tie.

Michelle loved making this dress and got tons of compliments every time she wore it, so she's planning to make another one! The pattern is the Riviera Cote D'Azur knit dress, designed for light, drapey knits that are perfect for summer. This pattern can also be adapted as a tunic or top - relaxed, chic and comfy.

The Angie

The Angie Dress from Scientific Seamstress has an easy-going, relaxed form. The flattering bodice is fun, yet flirty, and the pattern gives several options for neckline depth. Choose a higher neckline for everyday wear or a dramatic drop for nighttime gatherings.
