Buy the Sauvie Sundress sewing pattern from Sew House Seven. Sauvie is the dress you’ll reach for when you want comfort, ease and style in those hot summer months. It’s also perfect for layering over a t-shirt when the temperatures drop. Sauvie can be anything from a swim cover-up to a casual summer dress to an elegant evening gown depending on your fabric choice.

The low front and back V-necklines and narrow straps were designed to cover a bra, and optional bra keeper instructions are included to hide and secure your bra straps within the garment for that extra couture detail.

With two pocket options, three hem finishes, two waist finishes and two hem lengths, you can mix and match any of the versions’ features.

Version #1 – loose waist, above-the-knee hem.
Version #2 – loose waist, midi length with side vents.
Version #3 – wide elasticised waist, midi length.
Version #4 – wide elasticised waist, midi length with ruffle hem.

Suggested fabrics: Lightweight woven fabrics such as linen, linen blends, cotton lawn, silk noil, silk crepe de chine, wool gabardine and just about any woven dress-weight fabric that isn’t too thick or stiff. Note that stable fabrics such as cotton lawn may result in a tighter fit at the upper bust.

Fabric requirements: Allow extra fabric if matching stripes or plaids or using border prints.

Most of the sizes/versions in the 16 – 34 size range will not fit on fabrics less than 54″ (137 cm) wide.

Sizing: US 00 – 20 and US 16 – 34 (approx. UK 6 – 22 and UK 20 – 36/38, based on our standardised size chart). Please also check the designer’s size charts and finished garment measurements.

Note: The size ranges have been drafted from different blocks. The standard size range (sizes 00 – 20) is fit on a base size 8 that is approximately 5’6″ – 5’7″ (168 – 170 cm) tall and grades very slightly in height. It is fit on a B/C cup. The curvy size range (sizes 16 – 34) is fit on a base size 24 that is approximately 5’6″ – 5’7″ (168 – 170 cm) tall and does not grade in height. Cup sizes may be offered for C/D, E/F and G/H depending on the style. There are differences between the curvy and standard sizes 16 – 20. The shoulders on the curvy sizes are narrower, the cups are fuller, and the tummy and hips are rounder than for the standard sizes.

Notions: Thread; lightweight fusible interfacing // Versions #3 and #4: 1 1/2″ (40 mm) wide elastic, the length of your waist + 1 1/2″ (3.8 cm) // Optional bra keeper: two 8 mm or size 2/0 snap sets and a hand sewing needle.
