Playful dresses for carefree summers
Relive the carefree summers you enjoyed as a child in playful dresses handmade for girly adventures. Get up to all sorts of mischief while staying cool, comfortable and oh-so pretty. So add these frocks made for frolicking to your summer wardrobe and feel like a little girl again.
All Summer Frolic dresses are lovingly handmade by good friends Mel and Nina.
Tired of the black Melbourne uniform and unable to find fun and affordable summer dresses, the girls decided to dust off their sewing machines and make their own.
Now they bring their range of colourful, cool and comfortable summer dresses to markets in Melbourne.
Only a limited number of dresses are made each time and designs are dependent on what fabric the girls happen to find. So if you see something you like, snap it up because you might not find it again.

We don't refund if you change your mind. But we'll be happy to exchange if the dress hasn't been worn and is in its original condition.

We don't offer refunds for shipping errors beyond our control.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of our dresses come in SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE. Remember to let us know what size you want when you place your order.
The shirred bodice means our dresses will generally fit most people. We've found that most people – Australian size 10 to 14 – will fit comfortably in MEDIUM. SMALL fits Australian size 6 to 10 and LARGE fits Australian size 14 and up.
A larger size means more fabric around the waist and hip. So go for a larger size if you'd like a floaty style and a smaller size if you'd like your dress more fitted.
More information about sizing is included in each item description. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions before buying.
All Summer Frolic dresses come in a lovely handmade bag. Let us know if it's a gift and we'll include a gift tag with your personalised message.
Just include any additional information in Message to Seller when you make your purchase.
