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. 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 a range of occasions from wedding guest to evening events.

The Sun Dress features a fitted bodice with a square neckline, wide modern 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.

The wide skirt hem finishes the look. The dress is fastened by a concealed zipper at the back.

This was my first slightly ambitious project and I have to credit The Avid Seamstress for the quality of the pattern as well as the instructions. I’m over the moon with my gorgeous chambray sundress. Thank you!
