the summer dress.

The quintessential summer dress. 

It floats from the shoulders and it doesn't squish the waist,

gives room to explore...

and dream.

The pattern is from Oliver+S with one revision.  Instead of placing the front and back pattern piece on the fold as directed, I carried it all the way to the far side of the fabric and gathered in the difference under the yoke.  
This gives a lovely, airy quality to the dress that is cool on the hottest days.
