Summer Tunic/Dress (No.2) – Love Sewing Magazine


I like this tunic/dress sewing pattern so much that I have made another one! The simple style of this dress really suits me and I feel comfortable wearing it. This pattern is by Sewgirl for Love Sewing magazine (issue 3) and is based on the gorgeous and simple designs in Japanese pattern books. The design of this tunic/dress is similar to the Box Dress of Stylish Dress Book.

This time, I made it shorter than my first dress  (it sits just above the knee) and I added patch pockets to the front. I used a multi colour check print in a lightweight viscose/rayon which makes it airy for the summer.

I had made this dress for my holiday to Norway but read the online weather forecast prior to departure and realised that this dress would not be appropriate for the cooler and rainy Norwegian climate. Rather disappointing! The good news is that I wore my denim Owyn Pants a lot.

Have you made any garments to take on holiday and discovered that the climate was not suitable?

    Caroline, that fabric you chose is perfect for that design, and the colours! It’s great to find a great pattern that we can then make multiple times!
