1. Two-Tone Jersey
Jersey is a wonderful fabric to wear in warmer months. And if your idea of a summer dress is on the simple side, you will love this fabulous DIY project. Don’t you think this will look beautiful in mint green and white? How about orange and teal?
2. Upcycled Ruffle
How beautiful! I am a fan of the blue and the darling ruffle details. I also love this because this is a wonderful upcycling project, giving you a chance to breathe new life into an old shirt or tank top.
3. Cabana Dress
How scrumptious is this teal and orange summer dress? It’s wonderfully trendy, too, with its maxi length. For the bust part, you can opt to add built-in cups for easy and comfy beach style.
4. Lace Overlay
Lace may not feel like the perfect fabric for a summer dress but it can prove very useful, too. Just think: what will you wear if a cute guy in that beach resort you’re staying at ask you out? A lacy summer dress is sure to be your perfect date night weapon.
Look at this lovely DIY summer dress! Not only is the floral fabric gorgeous, I love the fact that this will look quite lovely for all seasons. Depending on the accessories or footwear you pair this with, you’ll have a beautiful frock to wear in autumn or even in winter.
6. Deep Halter
Here is a DIY summer dress that is sure to make you look like a vision by the pool. The deep neckline is quite fabulous and the material is also perfect for hot summer days.
7. Ruffled Maxi
This is an easy dress to sew; even beginners will find this DIY simple and fun. For the best results, you will want to use a lovely knit fabric.
8. Boho Maxi
This is one of my own tutorials and I promise that this is also quite a breeze to sew. This was inspired by a designer piece but I added my thrifty and crafty twist to the dress.
9. Drop Waist
Much like my own tutorial above, this lovely summer dress has a sassy tube style. It has another feature that I also love in dresses: a drop waist. They’re quite forgiving, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time at the beach resort buffet.
10. Laced Maternity Maxi
So you’re spending this summer with a bun in the oven. No worries, there is a way for you to look cute in your DIY sundress. This lovely (and easy!) maxi idea with lace details is sure to make you look wonderfully glowing.
So go ahead, sew your heart out. Make this summer your most stylish (and craftiest) yet.
