Sister Dresses for the Summer
We created the pattern for the summer shift, square neck in 2021 and it was a huge hit. (Illustration below) We just love the simplicity of the design and the fresh feeling it projects. The neck line is lovely with the trim, but not too fussy.
We wanted to make another one just like it in plus size, however….
We soon learned that this design does not translate well into plus sizes, unless you’d like to look like you are wearing a paper bag. And we didn’t think you’d like that! So we changed the square neck to a slight V and added princess seams. It worked! The design is still reminiscent of the shift dress, only better! (Illustrative of Hummingbird dress in Featured Image)
