Living in a place with a usually cool summer, the heat this year had me add to my summer dresses.  Both fabrics were from the stash, although one had only been in the stash since March, purchased from Vogue at Puyallup, so not sure it counts.

Style is sheath with a flare of 1.  I used something that came from V1 or V2.  I draft with 2 torso darts but only sew the one under the bust and in back the one close to the CB.  I tested and for me this is the same as using 5 inches of waist ease.  I wanted something comfy and loose enough - no zipper - just pull on.  Both are lined.

I used Classic instead of sleeveless.  Sleeveless brings in the shoulder point.  Because of all the ease I was using 2.5 in the bust, I wanted the shoulder to extend out further to keep the armhole smaller.  I also raised the armhole .5. 

Because the fabrics are busy, I kept the style simple.  The dark fabric is navy with pale pink and lime.  It is a pique weave.  The white and teal is a light weight jacquard.

Welcome to summer! LOL. Nice summery dresses!

Thanks for sharing the settings you used, as those are things I would not have thought of.

What kind of fabric did you use for the lining?

Linings were from the "box of linings".

The navy felt like a Bemberg.

The white was soft, I am guessing poly. Maybe a blend of poly/rayon.

Karen,

You have inspired us by posting your photos! Having a visual representation of these gorgeous dresses shows the great capabilities of the software. Your explanations about settings have made it easier to duplicate your masterpieces.

I have several friends who are considering to purchase PMB and these photos will convince them that it is well worth the cost. I love to make dresses and these photos have made my summer! Thanks!

Karen, what settings did you use for the neckline? Lovely dresses. This style would also be great in a knit.

Navy is Bemberg. Other is mystery lining. I' sure you all have some. I think a poly/rayon blend.

Cardis are RTW.

Living in a climate where temps can drop 10 degress in an hour I always have one in the car - and a jacket too all year long.
