Nordic Summer is a sleeveless dress fit for a princess. Add a bolero to add flair to the outfit. Play with different fabrics and colors for a variety of looks. The dress has a basque waistline and overlays are easily stitched onto the bodice. It closes with Velcro in the back. The bolero can be done as a plain bolero without binding or you can choose the binding option to add color. The binding is a pattern piece included in the PDF pattern or you can use store bought binding.
