5 Long summer dress patterns to sew for your holidays

Five lovely long summer dress patterns which we think you should be making for summer!  Perfect dresses to sew for your summer holidays.

When you’re packing for your holidays in the sun a long dress is essential.  Perfect for the day and can be dressed up for the evening for an instant elegant look. Think about fabric carefully when you’re choosing what to sew these up in, you want something that’s going to feel light and floaty when it’s hot!

We’ve picked these dresses as they’ll transition perfectly from beach to bar!  Just carry a pair of sandals and a piece of statement jewellery and you won’t even need to go back to the hotel to change before you head out for the evening (you’ll need to remember your lip gloss and mascara too!)
