Amalfi Dress from Hey June Handmade

A must-have dress for allsorts of summer occasions

The Amalfi dress is the perfect make for any occasion from a day out with the girls to a wedding invitation and summer dress for the office. It's easy-to-sew, easy-to-wear and can be styled in so many ways by using a different option (view) or changing the fabric.

The dress sits just above-the-knee or make as a feminine tea length skirt, both of which can be made with the optional in-seam pockets. Sleeve styles include a gorgeous flutter sleeve that looks beautiful with drapey fabric or a gathered short sleeve for more structured fabrics. Both views have a flattering V-neck line finished with an easy facing to add to the ultra feminine lines of the Amalfi.  Bust darts provide shaping and ease for a great fit. The waist is finished with a clean french-seamed elastic casing that is only visible on the inside of the dress. The elastic waist is comfy and can be shifted to the wearer’s narrowest waist point so it creates a flattering shape on straight figures or accentuates a small waist on hourglass figures too.

Pattern instructions include a section with tutorials to increase the dart uptake with a full bust adjustment and to add or subtract length from the bodice and skirt.  There's also a section that outlines how to raise or lower the V-neckline so it hits exactly where you prefer.  All this makes it a pattern that any sewer will be able to make.
