Create the floaty summer dress of your dreams with the Loring Dress!

Start with a simple pull-on woven darted dress with a beautifully shaped V neckline, gored skirt with roomy pockets, optional sleeves, and an elasticated drawstring with fun tassels you can make yourself. Then customize your Loring with ruffles at the neckline, skirt and/or sleeves to create the exact level of drama you want.

Whether you prefer simple, clean lines, or love to look like a veritable explosion of ruffles—or anywhere in between!—the Loring will be your new go-to this summer.

  • Cup sizes from C to H
  • A sizing calculator which will tell you exactly which size to make
  • A beautifully illustrated and detailed instruction booklet, to guide you no matter your sewing level 
  • A free step-by-step video sewalong that you can watch anytime

Lightweight but crisp woven fabrics such as cotton lawn, cotton poplin, lightweight linen.

NOTE: Choose your fabric based on how defined you would like your ruffles. If you use a very lightweight drapey fabric, the skirt will have more drape but the ruffles will be less dynamic. If you want your ruffles to hold their shape, you will want a fabric with more crispness, and also this will make for a fuller skirt.
