I'm going to Florida in May ( YAY!!!) and I need some suggestions for sundress pattern. I wear a size 6-8. I am 5'8 and I have a narrow chest, and I'm high waisted. I'd like a pattern that won't make me look even more high waisted. A line or full is fine.
Thanks!!!

The "Mission Maxi" seems to be a favorite!

Also consider a fast elastic-smocked one, works
for a swimsuit cover-up that goes into a restaurant.
You can find free tutorials online, don't need a pattern,
just a cute fabric.

I made a plus size of McCall's M6085 view B. It's a maxi style sundress and it came out pretty cute! It's cut to be pretty flowy and I used a thin, cotton sort of "global" print. I definitely recommend it!
