If you’re looking for a cute strapless dress for the warm weather, then try sewing this Simple Sweet DIY Sundress for your next summer sewing project! This tutorial shows you how to easily sew the top of the dress by making your own shirred fabric with elastic thread. While this cheerful dress uses a pastel gingham print, feel free to experiment with styles of fabric. For instance, this DIY dress would also look lovely with a bright, colorful pattern or a floral design!
