The Summer Fling Dress Extension pattern is a tutorial to be used with the Summer Fling Top Pattern. 

This pattern allows you to lengthen and add extra tiers to your Summer Fling Top to create a gorgeous below the knee dress. The top is based on a trapeze design which gives it a really nice relaxed fit. It has a halter-neck, a ruffled hem and a tie keyhole back closure. The ties, neckline and armholes are all finished with self fabric bias binding. 

The Summer Fling Top pattern and Dress Extension patterns are available in sizes 6-18 (Australian standards). The only skills required for this pattern are gathering and sewing bias binding which makes it perfect for the advanced beginner.

PREPARATION TIME Printing, sticking, cutting fabric and marking details 1-2 hours Sewing time 3-5 hours (approx) 


The Summer Fling Dress would look great in linen and  teamed up with flip flops for the beach or some cute sneakers for the street. 

Ideally it should be made up in a light to mid weight linen, linen blend, chambray, cotton or hemp  but could also work with any drapey fabric.

The Summer Fling Top/Dress Extension patterns are available in sizes 6-18 (Australian standards).
