It would be great if there was a simple single page drawing of this pattern that would just give you the basic outline with measurements. It looks fairly simple to make so it would be simple if it just gave the basic parts with the neck armholes, then the width length measurements below the armholes.

I had never worn a trapeze or tent dress until recently but I really love how comfy they are and they're fun without being too form fitting. Can't wait to try this project out!

This is a simple easy to sew dress that is perfect for summer wear. I am sure I would not print all 37 pages of this free pattern since some instructions are for a twist neck version that is quite involved. The remaining pages that refer to the simple scoop neck are easy to follow. A flowy jersey knit would be the best fabric for this dress or beach cover-up.

Love this dress!

I would wear a dress like this every day in the summer if I could! It's such a simple dress but sewing it in a really bold color will make it stand out. Looks super comfy too!
