Buy The Sun Dress sewing pattern from The Avid Seamstress. The Sun Dress is perfect for all year round. It’s a great look for warmer months when you need a dress that’s smart enough for the office yet stylish enough for weekend brunch. Then throw a casual jacket or cardigan over the dress when the weather is cooler. Team it with some luxury fabric and you’ll also have your go-to formal dress for special occasions and evening events!
The Sun Dress features a fitted bodice with a square neckline, wide straps and a button-down front. A pleated skirt with pockets offers a fun, flattering silhouette as well as comfort and practicality for your day-to-day activities. A wide hem finishes the look. The dress is fastened by a concealed zipper at the back.
