By SEW HOUSE SEVEN, Sauvie Sundress is a paper sewing pattern.

Garment Details: The Sauvie Sundress is the perfect strappy summer dress to reach for when you are wanting comfort, ease and style in those hot summer months. It's also perfect for layering over a t-shirt 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. 

The low front and back V-necklines and narrow straps were 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. 

With two pocket options, three hem finishes, two waist finishes and two hem lengths, you can mix and match any of the version's features. 

  • Front & Back V-necklines - the back neck is low, just barely covering a bra.
  • Shoulder straps that cover bra straps with optional bra keeper snaps.
  • Bust Darts
  • Pockets: Version A topstitched, single layer pockets; Version B in-seam, loose pockets
  • Version #1 - loose at the waist with above the knee hem.
  • Version #2 - loose waist, midi length with side vents.
  • Version #3 - wide elasticised waist, midi hem, A-line skirt.
  • Version #4 - wide elasticised waist, midi hem length with bottom ruffle.

  • Sizing: This is a multi-size pattern with two size ranges to choose from, sizes 00-20 and 16-34. Sew House Seven's sizing information chart can be found here. Sizing, finished garment measurements and fabric requirements can be found here.

    Cover model (size 00-20) 5' 9" and wearing size 12 with 1" added length. Cover model (size 16-34) is 5' 11" and wearing size 24 with 2" added length

    Fabric Suggestions: 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.

    Trims required: Matching thread, light-weight fusible interfacing, versions #3 & #4 - 1 1/2"/40mm wide elastic. Optional bra keeper chain and snap requires two small snap sets approximately 8mm or size 2/0 and a hand sewing needle.

    Skill Level: Confident beginner level pattern.
