+ Easy Summer Dresses | Round Up - The Sewing Loft
Summer days are for relaxing with a cool drink in your hand in a floaty and feminine sundress. Whether you prefer a maxi dress or want to flaunt your legs in a mini, the perfect sundress is the one you've sewn yourself from just the right fabric. The best sundress fabrics are lightweight and breathable. Synthetic fabrics trap the heat and make you feel sweaty - nothing feminine about that! Fabrics such as lightweight cotton, dupioni, crepe, rayon, and shirting are excellent choices for a light and breezy dress. Linen and quilting cotton are options for a more structured, less drapey dress.
