I am just so happy that it is finally time to pack away all of the cold weather stuff and jump into skirts and sundresses! There is something so beautiful about a perfect sundress. It makes you feel confident and keeps you cool in the heat. The good thing about sundresses is, as well, that they are often easy to make, too. Here are some great patterns for making your own sundresses for this season!

I love this cute Colorblock Sundress from Melly Sews. It looks simple and I can imagine so many great ways to pair colors up on it and create new looks. This dress even has pockets! This looks for someone who is a beginner to intermediate level.
Since maxi-dresses are back in style big time, this Simple Maxi Dress from Made it on Monday is perfect! I really love how easy this one is and how simple it turns out. Not only is it easy, but maxi-dresses look really great on most figures and since you are making one yourself, you can customize it for your height and not be left with one that is too short or too long like the ones in stores!
Another maxi dress option is this ultra frugal Maxi Dress from a Vintage Sheet by Running with Scissors. I absolutely adore the vintage style mixed with the vintage pattern from the sheets on this dress. If you hit up a thrift store or even your own attic you may be able to make this dress for free or at the very least very cheap!
If you are looking for a versatile sundress that can be worn casually, on a date or even to an outdoor wedding this summer, this Grecian Sundress from Tanit-Isis Sews is the perfect pattern for you! It includes instructions for making it shorter and knee length or longer and more of a maxi style.
This casual High-Wasted Dress from Talk2Trees is an ingenious way to use a tank top! This dress is made with one and it is so simple that even a very early beginner could do it!
Another great dress that is made from already bought materials is this McIntosh Knock-Off Dress from Maybe Matilda. Instead of a tanks, this dress uses a tee shirt. This is another great dress to make if you are just learning to sew.
Keeping with the fugal vibe, make sure you check out this Sun Dress from a Dress Shirt tutorial from Cut Out and Keep! I can’t believe how creative some people are out there! This dress uses a man’s button down dress shirt to create a sundress from! Isn’t that a great idea?
