The Sweet Summer Sundress is made with a yard of cotton jersey knit fabric and a strip of a second fabric (or the same, if you prefer!) for the belt and straps. Since Jamie's daughter styled it with pink leggings, she decided to use pink for the belt and embellish with a sweet ruffle.
The best part about this dress is that you can make it in any size! Keep it short to wear as a tunic or lengthen the hem to create a trendy maxi dress. Head on over to Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom for the complete tutorial.
Jamie recommends a light-weight cotton jersey knit for this dress. Make it with one of our popular Chevrons, like the Perfectly Pink Chevron on White Cotton Jersey Blend Knit Fabrics. The Mustard and Ivory Stripe Cotton Jersey Knit Fabric is perfect for summer, or make the dress with our super popular Gold Pin Dot on Cream Cotton Jersey Blend Knit Fabric.
