Simplicity Summer Dresses

Summer is the season for special gatherings, whether it be a garden party, a wedding or a BBQ. Which means plenty of occasions to get sewing for.

Here is a round up of our favourite sewing patterns, so you can create your own stylish makes this summer.



It’s all about the two-piece:

Create a look that’s original this Summer and opt for Cynthia Rowley’s 8086 pattern. The trick is, this dress has the style of a two piece, yet with the comfort of an all in one. It really is a dress to impress!


Be Runway Ready:

One of our Project Runway faves has designed a  special occasion wear range for us. Leanne Marshall’s pattern 1353 gives you sweetheart necklines & princess seams.  Choose between belts and bows or full skirt and straps. There is a style for everyone!

Double Trouble

Want to be co-ordinated? Simplicity 8183 is perfect for creating that duo look but keeping individual style.


Belle at the Ball:

Turn your little one into a princess for that special day! With a variety of styles, choose between gauntlets, gathered split over skirt and sleeves. Why not let her design her own.


 Heart this Pattern:

Let your teen stand out at the party, with this heart cutout. Change the design with different sleeves and a skirt contrast option.
