Sew a stunning bra-friendly summer dress with the Sofia Dress PDF sewing pattern!
The Sofia Dress is a gorgeous strappy dress with a lower back cut-out and the choice of buttons or a bow for the back closure.
The bodice is lined and gathered at the centre front to create a gentle sweetheart shape over a wide waistband. Version one closes with a beautiful bow at the back (fully bra-friendly when tied the right way). Version two closes with buttons at the centre back and includes two different options to create a higher or lower back cut-out.
You can make Sofia with a simple gathered skirt or with three gathered tiers for more volume and for a chance to play with the print on your fabric – Sofia is a great one for stripes! The skirt is elasticated at the back and you can make the lower back more or less exposed by using a longer or shorter length of elastic.
Make your Sofia in cotton or chambray for a more structured look and a fuller bow, or create a flowy summer dress in viscose or crepe.
