Summer Sundress Inspiration

I finished another version of M5038 last night, but it was too cold and rainy today to get a good photo, and my camera takes really lousy indoor pics, so I'll have to wait to share it. In the meantime, I've been doing some inspiration shopping at ModCloth. I'm really feeling the urge to make a romantic summer sundress. I like this one. What could be better than polka dots? The shape is simple, yet very pretty- I love the wide straps, the sweetheart neckline with pleated bust, and of course, the full skirt gathered at the natural waist.

Va va va voom! What a sexy sailor dress! I love the red and white color scheme. Once again, we have wide straps, a sweetheart neckline, and this time, a cute bow. The belt and the white trim at the hem really set this one off. It's a wee bit short, though.

But look! Here it is in navy, and in a much more flattering length. Gorgeous!

And check this one out! Who can resist a dress covered in cherries? It has the wide straps and sweetheart neckline (are you seeing a theme here?) as well as the ruched bodice. I love this! I can just picture it with a little pink cardigan and red peep toe shoes with bows. And a cute purse. A romatic summer sundress needs a cute purse to go with it!

I'm off to dream about warm summer breezes and floaty dresses while it rains and the temperature falls outside. I might go work on the Burda knit dress. Maybe.

Happy sewing!
