It doesn’t get much easier than The Staple Dress, so fabric choice makes all the difference here. I prefer this simple style with a lightweight fabric like my first one in voile or Liberty Tana Lawn. I also saw a sweet version that Adrienne made last week using the new Cotton + Steel Rayon and it was amazing.
With just two main pieces and some bias trim this whips up very quickly. For me, the shirring is a must to add shape but adding a belt is another easy option.
The pattern has ‘optional’ side seam pockets but pockets are essential in my world.
