Easy to make, the Picnic Sundress features a cute button flower on the front and a bow in the back. The contrasting hem band adds nice detailing to the dress and the shoulder ties snap in the back of the neck. A simple lined Bolero jacket complements the sundress perfectly with a cutout in the back to “Show My Bow”. Make the dress and jacket up in contrasting fabrics with a splash of a third color for today’s look. For even more detail add piping or lace to the hem band and/or jacket. Ribbon can be used for the shoulder ties and back bow. Intermediate seamstresses can easily make the jacket reversible.
