The wedding ceremony is an important event in the life of any woman. Selecting the best summer wedding dress is certainly something every bride would like to do. In the earlier days people never preferred to hold their wedding ceremonies in summers but with the change in the mindsets of people and advancement in every field people prefer to hold their marriages in such months. They think that it is just the perfect season to get married and they look out for the best dress to suit the occasion. Summer is no doubt the hottest season of the year and it is a natural tendency to sweat a lot in those months. One should keep this aspect of the season in mind before selecting a wedding dress. In fact, the pattern is so simple and inexpensive, you can have a different dress for every day of summer if you want.
Create the dress pattern. The pattern is a simple rectangle that will use your bust measurement for the width, and the length will be the distance between your armpit and 2 inches below your knee. You can adjust the length depending on how long you want the dress to be.
Pin the pattern to the material so that the top of the pattern (the width) is parallel to the cross-wise grain. The cross-wise grain, or weft, is the side of the material that can be pulled and stretched. When selecting your material, go for bright colors, which work well on summer garments. Material with a floral design is good for summer as well.
Fold the strip of fabric in half so that it creates a loop at the top. Sew the loop part to the front of your dress. Sew it in the middle and at the top of your summer dress as this is the tie that will go around your neck. You can also make two strips of fabric and attach them to the dress as straps.
Sew down the side that you just pinned using a basic straigth stitch on your sewing machine. Make sure you have regular thread on the bobbin and leave about 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Purchasing your favorite attire is no more a hassle as there is a tremendous variety of dresses available now days. One can choose from fabrics like organdy, linen, chiffon, light weight silk to stay comfortable at the wedding. Simple silhouettes like slip dresses are also a good option to opt for. Sleeveless, halter, backless and tube dresses are best to be for at the occasion. These dresses allow you to show off some gorgeous skin in the fabulous weather. Strapless sheaths and mermaid styles are also a lovely option for summer.
