My favourite summer dress: Vallis dress

I had the Vallis tunic and dress* already on my sewing list for some time. With our summer holiday in sight I decided it was time to sew it up, and now I have a new favourite summer dress!

The Vallis by Sofilantjes is a quick sew and has a wow factor when you wear it! The bodice and back is always the same but it includes different ways to sew up the seam. I used the asymmetrical seam and I love it, but I love asymmetrical garments so no surprise there. I am only 162, while the pattern is drawn for 168 cm. I did not shorten it because I like my dresses to be on my knee. Keep that in mind when you are sewing up your dress.

The Vallis is just the perfect summer dress because it is nice and flowy, look at my twirl below, it covers a belly quite nicely. So you don’t have to keep in mind what you eat during summer and it covers your bra straps nicely. Next time I would maybe lower the armpits by 1 cm to get an even better fit. Now I just need to sew it up for our girls.
