Oops! I accidentally went two months without a blog post. Life has been busy and full of changes which has left little time for sewing. I squeezed in some time last week to make this dress!

I’ve been wanting a dress like this for a while. I have seen a lot of tutorials to make something similar. I’d rather just have a pattern to work off of so I was excited when the Victory Patterns Sophia popped up on my Instagram feed. The Sophia dress has a shirred bodice, four different sleeve options and a long skirt that can be lined. I used a tencel cotton lawn from Sew Me Sunshine. I saw it on the website earlier this year but hesitated to buy it because I was worried I only wanted it because Valentine’s Day was coming up. Well, Valentine’s Day passed and I was still thinking about it but it sold out! When I was browsing the website in the spring I was so excited when I saw it was in stock again. This fabric is sooo soft! It is a bit sheer though so I lined the front bodice and the skirt with a white viscose. I was a little short on fabric so I had to lessen the angle of the A line on the skirt pieces so they would fit on my fabric.

I love how it came out. Perfect summer dress! But let’s be honest- I’m definitely throwing a cardigan and tights on with this dress at Valentine’s Day.
