This fun summer dress has been designed with hot weather in mind!

The dress features spaghetti straps which tie on the shoulder for a custom fit - great if you've got sloping shoulders.

There is a fold over band along the top of the dress, which when made in a contrasting fabric can make a simple dress into something rather eye catching.

And the whole dress fastens up down the front with 9 buttons.

The dress is short, finishing mid thigh, which is ideal for those hot summer days, however for the more modest you may wish to lengthen the pattern to suit.

This pattern will require some knowledge of sewing and an understanding of what pattern symbols mean (if you not sure please search on line for pattern symbols or refer to a good sewing book).
