Get Obsessed with the Oona Dress
Meet your new favourite sundress: the fabulously simple Oona Dress.
The Oona Dress is a stylish summer dress that’s super easy to sew.
She’s ideal for absolute beginners and incredibly speedy for more experienced sewers.
A sleeveless dress with wide bra-concealing straps, Oona has no closures at all – you just pop it over your head and you’re ready to go!
To add some shaping, you can choose between a wide elastic inserted into the waist through a channel on the inside of the dress, or you can make a version with waist ties to keep the front of the dress uninterrupted and to keep the fit adjustable.
The neckline is finished neatly with a facing, and there are two cheeky side splits to make it easier to move in Oona’s straight skirt. And if you can’t live without them, we’ve included optional side-seam pockets too!
Oona works beautifully in cotton poplin or lawn, as well as in more structured fabrics like linen or a light denim. Try her in viscose, crepe or linen viscose like our navy sample for a more fluid look. Our wonderful Pattern Insiders made some beautiful Oona’s in a great variety of fabrics. Will you go print or solid for yours?
