What we think: A lovely dress for your summer holiday wardrobe. The princess seams give a flattering fit and the neckline and hem frill options allow you to add nice design details such as contrasting lace or stripes.

View A has a contrast Peter Pan collar, straps at the neck, and a gathered ruffle at the hem that hits above the knee.

View B has a bias-cut gathered ruffle at the neck, a tie belt at the waist, and hits just above the knee.

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight woven fabrics, like quilt weight cotton, cotton shirting, lawn, swiss dot, double gauze, linen, chambray, rayon, silk.
