:: Pleaded Summer Dress :: Free Sewing Pattern ::


Here’s a fun weekend project for you to hone your sewing skills and get ready for summer too: learn how to make this romantic pleaded summer dress for you.  Find below a free sewing pattern for this and other summer dresses.


Romantic Pleated Summer Dress

What a great summer dress! So flattering (completely hiding tummy and hips!) Yeah. The ideal plus-size dress pattern: helps boost the bust and hides waist and hips. 

It’s a romantic and timeless dress. Keep the simplicity of Melly, or embellish it to your liking. I am sure this summer dress is going to be a favorite that you will want to hang on to.

I love that look of linen cotton or hemp, giving that ‘easy summer’- feel. Wonderful. Makes me feel on vacation by just looking at it.


This summer dress was designed by Melly from Mama Says Sew. You can find the pattern here, at Mama Says Sew, where she guest blogged and shared her tutorial. Thank you, Melly.


The dress pattern is really easy as it is more of a beginners dress making tutorial rather than a pattern that you need to cut out.  In the words of Melly: “It’s a big rectangle than gets its shape from pleats and a little math.” Go check it out. You can do it!
