The Sauvie Sundress is the perfect strappy summer dress to reach for when you want comfort, ease and style in the hot summer months (here or abroad)!

It's also perfect for layering over a t-shirt or thin jumper as a pinafore when the temperatures drop.

Sauvie can be anything from a swim cover-up to a casual summer dress to an elegant evening gown depending on your fabric choice. 

It features bust darts and low front and back V-necklines and narrow straps which are designed to cover bra straps and optional bra keeper instructions are included to hide and secure your bra straps within the garment for that extra couture detail.

  • Version #1 - loose at the waist with above the knee hem.
  • Version #2 - loose waist, midi length with side vents.
  • Version #3 - wide elasticized waist, midi hem, A-line skirt.

Sewing Level: Confident beginner

Sizing: Approx. UK 6 – 22 (0 - 20) and UK 18/20 - 36 (16 - 34). Note the overlapping sizes are not quite the same as they have been drafted from different blocks. Please see the designers size guide in the provided images.

Fabrics: Woven

Light-weight woven fabrics such as linen, linen blends, cotton lawn, silk noil, silk crepe de chine, wool gabardine and just about any woven dress-weight fabric that isn't too thick or stiff.

Note that stable fabrics such as cotton lawn may result in a tighter fit at the upper bust while fabrics with drape such as rayon challis may result in a looser fit.
