I’m so happy to announce that the Easy Breezy Summer Dress Pattern is ready!
Thank you, thank you for all the great name ideas. I think I retyped the name at the top of the pattern at least 10 times. I especially loved the Hawaiian names. This dress makes me think of Hawaii and South Pacific every time I look at it.
But in the end, it had to be the Easy Breezy Summer Dress because it is such a breeze to make and because the dress is so light and cool.
The idea for the name came from Missy who suggested the EZ Breezy Cover Up (clever!) and Heather who liked the Summer Breeze Dress.
Thank you Missy and Heather! I’ll be emailing you both a copy of the pattern today.
Let me tell you a little bit about the Easy Breezy Summer Dress. It is a halter style dress pattern in Girls Sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12. It is easily customizable for a perfect fit in every size in between.
It’s just right as a swimsuit cover-up for the pool or the beach. The fully lined bodice can even be rolled over to make a quick and versatile skirt! It looks darling with a small close-fitting tee under the dress or with a light summer sweater.
The Easy Breezy Dress Pattern is simple and can be made in a few hours or less. The dress has no raw seams on the inside (yeah!) (and no, you don’t use a serger, just a sewing machine).
It is suitable for a beginning sewer with some experience.
The .pdf pattern is 12 pages of step by step instructions and includes helpful photos, diagrams and tips. Click here to check out a preview of the pattern.
