A relaxed fit, scoop-back, summer dress with curved hem and drawstring detail.
Versions are given to make with or without sleeves and pockets inserted in the side seam.
The sleeveless version takes more fabric to allow for the full facings required.
Please note the sleeved version uses bias binding to finish the neckline not seam binding as stated on the back of the pattern envelope.
Designed for classic summer fabrications, this style works best in light to medium weight linens and cottons. Or for a more fluid effect try silk and viscose mixes.
The taupe dress shown has been made in our Hand-dyed Washed Linen
We've finished the drawstring detail with our corded elastic and toggles available here

'I've just made up two different versions of the Sun Dress - it's such an easy pattern to use and and I love how versatile it is. Made the first version in your washed linen, which is has a lovely relaxed casual feel, and the second in a crisp, glazed-cotton Lucienne Day print from John Lewis which is more structured and formal - a perfect summer work dress. This is a fabulous pattern - quick and easy to make, with so much potential for creating different looks from a few simple pieces. Love it!'
