Montis Tunic and Dress Release

The summer dresses (and tunic) patterns by Sofilantjes* are always a hit in our house. So is the new Montis Dress (also available in Dutch) that I made during testing. My husband thinks it is the best thing I ever sewed. Since my husband is always my most critical audience, that definitely says something. And of course my daughter has been wearing it since I finished it. It has a twirl, it has nice chameleons on it, it has pockets, what else does a girl want!
Montis, the name of the pattern, is latin for mountain as the dress looks like a mountain. The Montis Tunic and Dress (12M - 14 years) has two options for the top. The first option has three straps on the back and is lined. The second option has just one strap in the front and the back and is not lined, which is perfect for hot weather. The front and back of both options look the same. You can make the dress with tunic length or dress length. 
I made the second option with just one strap. As always with the Sofilantjes patterns, the fit is spot on. And an added bonus is that it looks so different from the previous Sofilantjes dresses. Luckily it is a quick sew, I was ill and had to finish the dress before the deadline. Within 1,5 hours I had cut the fabric and sewed the dress. The most time-consuming was cutting my own bias band and sewing the bias band on the bottom of the dress. I love the result. You can also add a rolled hem to the dress.
