Southport Dress review

A review of Southport Dress


Reviewed by PatsyPoo on 12th August, 2019

I’ve only discovered the Southport this year and it has now become one of my favourite summer dress patterns. It’s very simple and quick to sew and incredibly comfortable to wear. If you’re not a fan of bias binding, this is not the pattern for you. The neckline and arms are finished that way. There are buttons at the front but they don’t have to be functional as the neckline is wide enough for the dress to be pulled on and off.
There are 2 skirt lengths on offer as well and although I’m not usually one for a maxi length I’m very very pleased with this one. I’ve worn it quite a few times already and I know that will continue. This is my second version. I’ve also made the knee length one.
The instructions are great and the finishing on this is superb. Apart from side seams, everything is enclosed – and I did french seams for mine anyway.
