Summer is here & the classic Slip Dress is the unofficial summer uniform! Our Saltwater Slip Dress Sewing Pattern is a key stand out piece for the season. In this edit we're showcasing gorgeous photos from our Summer photoshoot & rounding up content & fabric suggestions; that way you have everything you need to get making your dream summer dress. Let's dive in!

The Saltwater Slip is a simple slip dress with adjustable straps that can be layered or worn on its own. The pattern comes with two length options: above the knee, and tea length (with side slits). It also comes with optional side ties to add a bit of waist shaping. Wear this slip over a tee shirt, under a sheer dress, or on its own! The pattern comes in sizes XS-7X and includes multiple cup size options (B/C and C/D). This is a pullover dress with no closures. You'll want to make this easy-to-sew slip again and again!
* Purchase includes sizes XS/0 - 7X/32 (32”/81cm -60”/152cm chest).
Breezy fabrics with lovely drape is what will see this pattern made in its best light. It's a simple silhouette but the way it falls should glide over your body & make you feel good.
