The Shirred Sun-Dress is a Summer holiday staple which can be made in a variety of fabrics.

You can make a top, mini-dress, knee-length, midi or maxi length dress, with or without a tier, with or without pockets, and with 4 choices of strap style. This really is a quick and versatile project suitable for all abilities of sewing. Plus, it's great fun too!
Included is a five part video series comprising of over one and a half hours of sew-along style tutorials. I will carefully and slowly talk you through each element of the project, covering all processes from creating your pattern, to cutting out, to sewing up your dress, including my top tips for perfect shirring.
