For the Sun
When it comes to summer dresses, my favorite options are lightweight and breezy – perfect for those sunny days. Try the Poppy Dress in a breathable linen and throw it on as-is or even over a swimsuit for a chic beach cover-up! The Perth Dress would be equally stylish in a cotton print or a solid double cotton gauze, while the Bluebell is the perfect option for a modernized cottagecore look!
Stretchy & Chic
There’s no rule that says you can’t be both comfortable and stylish. Try any one of these jersey knit dress patterns for a look that’s as equally stunning as it is fun to wear! The Rhodes Infinity Dress can be sewn as-is or cropped to above the knee for a less formal vibe. If you’re feeling daring, you could even swap the skirt for pants and create a gorgeous infinity jumpsuit! The Mimosa and Mallow Dresses are both optimal for a luxe bamboo or rayon jersey for a simple, yet elegant summer style!
