An easy breezy beach dress design in our Big Cotton yarn. With an boatneck and open sleeves, this dress is easy to slip on and comfortable to wear over a bikini on the beach or as a summer dress.

The simple design has alternate knit sections with decorative purl rows and is available to knit in different lengths depending on what style you prefer to wear. It has a generously oversized fit so if you’d like it smaller please go down a size.

Knit from bottom to top in the round, there is very little sewing up. You finish with a gentle rib around the sleeves and can wear the dress off the shoulder or choose a narrower boatneck. We like to wear it loose or styled with a belt. Throw your towel in your bag and you’re ready to hit the beach!
