This modern take on a shift dress is boxy, with cut-on dolman sleeves and a round neckline. It's classic but contemporary, and the perfect outfit for summer. You could use any weight of woven fabrics for this pattern, but it will hold its structure best with a heavier fabric, like a jacquard, heavyweight linen, or lightweight denim.

Stevie Dress Makes from the Web
If you haven’t used Tilly’s pattern’s before they are ideal for beginner sewists as well as more experienced sewers wanting to make, in this case, a quick project.
Our notes: Becky does an excellent breakdown of how she altered her Stevie to be a little more fitted without tight, for a more flattering fit.
Adorable, what a fantastic idea!
Our notes: You would never know that this adorable shirt was made from pillowcases! It's amazing what a nice, simple pattern can do to show off a great fabric.
I was surprised by how easy and enjoyable it was to work with the fabric, because I’ve read often that gauze can be finicky.
Our notes: The combination of this dress and the gauzy fabric is extremely pleasing! Gauze is perfect for a simple pattern; the texture and floatiness just shines.
This is my first pattern hack.
Our notes: A beautiful summer dress with a cheery poppy print, it's wonderful to see sewists hacking patterns. This pattern is an excellent canvas for changes.
It looks like Marimekko! Great job
Our notes: A great example of how fabric really shines in a boxy dress. I especially love that the OP has reversed the fabric for the pocket.
Your shirt is great!
Our notes: Featuring cut-on sleeves, the Stevie dress is awesome for those who've had some trouble with sleeves, like this sewist. It's so great to see these milestones!
