Transform a couple of yards of your favorite breezy fabric into simple lightweight tops, tunics, and dresses with this square dress tutorial that Cal Patch shared on the Etsy blog!

Once it gets hot and humid around these parts, the only thing I want to put on is a frothy wisp of a garment: loose, lightweight and brightly colored, in a cool, sheer fabric that will barely skim my body and move with the slightest of breezes. Something cloud-like, comfy and so simple that it defies conventional rules of garment construction.


If you’re new to sewing your own clothing, this is a great intro project for beginners!
