This is a fantastically simple summer maxi dress pattern. You can whip this up in an evening with great ease!

The pattern also includes the cutting line to make this into a knee length dress as a variation.

The dress features a halter strap, although this can be optional as the dress is elasticated at the waist and above the bust, and will hold itself up, so it can be worn as a tube dress.

The elasticated top also makes this dress a comfortable dress for summer and beach wear.

It's a very versatile dress pattern, if you've made the maxi dress and the knee length dress you could always chop the pattern down further to make a top to wear with you jeans as well!
