Sundressing is a sensibility played out at barbecues and on vacations and in days without a plan. It’s the slip dress you pull over a swimsuit at the pool and the frock you layer over leggings while dreaming of warmer days. And it’s the effortless style this book will help you achieve.
Featuring 10 women’s dresses and 11 dresses for girls, and ranging from toddler to plus-size, each project starts with instructions for a bodice and a skirt, but from there, it’s up to you! From the simple and pretty lines of the classic Primrose sundress to the edgy and stylish shape of the city-chic SoCo dress, you’ll find the instruction and inspiration you need to make your own unique and custom-fitted dresses. Change the skirt length or style, try different fabrics and prints--make each dress a one-of-a-kind piece!
Whether you’re working on something lovely and versatile for everyday wear or creating a stunning showstopper for your next night out, you don’t have to be afraid to mix it up. Your new warm-weather wardrobe is waiting in the pages of Sundressing!
