Lena Wrap Dress
Give a classic design a modern twist with this flattering Lena wrap dress. This floaty number enjoys the luxury of no tricky closures and a fully-lined bodice for that extra bit of structure and comfort. Choose from three different sleeve options and optimise the bottom band by incorporating different colours or prints. Read Giorgia of One Stitch Forward blog’s pattern review, she was thrilled with her version of the Lena Wrap Dress.
I found this pattern very clever, as it’s easily customisable to make it as fancy or as simple as one desires. I was longing for a quick, satisfying project I could wear almost the next day. – Giorgia
Sophia Top & Skirt
This Sophia Top & Skirt pattern is one that lends itself to a variety of occasions and showcases enduring style. You can really make your stamp on this garment by playing with different fabric and prints. Why not try a sequined top or a voluminous taffeta skirt for a glamorous alternative to occasion wear?
The Sophia skirt is lovely and long, so is perfect to keep you cool on a hot summer’s day! The skirt came together very quickly too, and the box pleats add a really interesting detail, while also giving the skirt more movement.
Blogger, The Little Dressmaker wrote a great review of this top and skirt pattern – she does look very pleased with her make!
We love an easy-to-wear throw-on dress for those balmy, summer days and the Utility pattern is just the ticket. It boasts an easy construction with no fiddly zips, relaxed sleeves and a simple drawstring waist that gives the fabric pretty, gentle pleats.
I have been wearing this dress almost everyday since I finished it. The sleeves are lovely and breezy, which is great in this heatwave! I love the silhouette, I think it’s flattering and effortless.

If you’re looking for a simple dress pattern that can be whipped up in an afternoon, look no further than the Nicole Dress. It’s simple, statement style lends itself to a variety of fabric options and can be adapted to suit any season.
I love this dress and would recommend the pattern, its quick to make and versatile. This version in stretch denim is perfect for the spring. I am going to make a mini one is cotton for later in the summer…watch this space.
