Sunny Day Beach Dress
By Katrin Vorbeck
From Stitch Summer 2013

This airy dress is perfect for a day at the beach. Just slip it over your head and you’re
ready for a walk to the snack shack or a surfside stroll.

As versatile as it is fun, you can make it up in pretty cotton prints for the beach, dream it up in double-layered voile for a special occasion, shorten it for a tunic, or stitch it from fine wool fabric and add a lining to make it suitable for the office.

Main Fabric 100% cotton or other lightweight woven, 45" wide (shown: Kaffe Fassett Millefiore in orange)

— Pattern:
— Front (A)
— Back (B)
— Yoke (C)
— Front Hem Band (D)
— Back Hem Band (E)
— 1 yd lightweight, fusible interfacing
— Sewing thread to match Accent fabric
— 4 yd of ready-made, single-fold bias tape (or cut your own from accent fabric; see Step 3)
— Tailor’s chalk or fabric-safe marker

Terrible design
I thought this was really cute. A quick and easy sun dress that could be worn anywhere. NOT! The previous reviewer hit it right on the nose. The yoke is way too tight and uncomfortable. And what is going on with the sleeve binding? I followed all directions and it is just awful. No wonder the models hair covers that area. Unfortunately, I purchased the fabric for this dress. Don't waste your money. Review by margaret (Posted on 7/31/2015)
Not a sundress
This dress looks really cute in the photo. I purchased the pattern and made a “preliminary” dress, as recommended, using a cotton sheet. The body of the dress seems accurately sized. The yoke area was quite narrow and the neckline in back did not lay flat. The back of the dress is very high to the neck. The front does not cover bra straps (the area where the model’s hair is showing). The finished product really is only suitable as a “beach” cover up and not a sundress. I did not waste $40 plus in fabric to make this dress. Review by Pam-MI (Posted on 4/17/2014)
