Lazy picnics in the park, long walks on the beach or balmy evenings out with friends: there’s nowhere this breezily stylish summer frock won’t take you! For this fantastic free pattern, we’ve teamed up the lovely lasses from Pattern Runway, a new boutique pattern company with all kinds of stylish downloadable sewing patterns. Wear this little number with flats, with hats, with sunnies and with headscarves – dress it up or down for any occasion and enjoy sporting this seasonal staple all summer long. We made ours in a light, breathable cotton from The Fabric Store, but it also works well in lived-in linen or beautiful, draped silk – play around with different pattern options like stripes, polka dots, printed or plain. And the best thing about this fantastic frock? All the compliments (and requests) you’ll get when your friends find out that you made it with your own fair hands.
