NEW RELEASE! The Havana Dress is here!

NEW RELEASE! The Havana Dress is here!

Posted by Sarah Connell on

Things are heating up for summer, and as the mercury rises, we start looking for simple, cool silhouettes to get us through those scorching days with style.

The newly released Havana dress and top will quickly become your go-to outfit, for everything from summer BBQ's to strolls along the sand- you won't be able to help singing a bit of the song to yourself every time you wear this little number.

Designed for woven fabrics, the Havana dress and top features four views, with options for a racerback, lace-up back, or low scooped back. With the dress, there are also options for a gathered skirt, hitting at the natural waist (very flattering!), or a single front and back piece that skims over your curves in just the right way.

Short, long and top lengths are included, as well as pockets (of course!) Bust darts offer gentle shaping, and the bodice is finished with bias binding, for a clean look inside and out. The straps can even be tied as a halter or on the shoulders, for easy nursing access.

With its simple silhouette and easy styling, the Havana would be the perfect project for a beginner seamstress, or someone new to working with wovens- but it's also an excellent project for an advanced seamstress looking for a quick and satisfying sew!

As always our testers did an amazing job, and it was fun to see the dress in all different fabrics and styles- it pairs well with everything from sneakers to a summer hat.

Check out all their photos below, and don't forget to head on over to our Facebook group to give them a virtual high five!

*This test was sponsored by Sly Fox Fabrics. They have an extensive selection of woven fabrics available that are a great match for this project*
