The Sizzler Sundress - Naughty Bobbin Patterns


Well, if you're ready to amp it up to full volume this summer, this is the pattern for you! Being a pattern tester and not having seen a photo or drawing of the dress, I had no idea of the va va voom factor until I'd finished it. Then I pulled it on, looked in the mirror, and I was strutting around like Kim Kardashian at a beach resort!* This is the Sizzler Sundress by Naughty Bobbin Patterns and if you want to look like you've dropped two dress sizes in 30 seconds, you need this pattern now!

*I hasten to mention that this was all in the privacy of my own home and that any public strutting will slightly more subdued. Just slightly!


The dress is fitted with a flattering front neckline and gorgeous v-back. It is designed so that bra straps won't show and I can happily report that mine were well hidden. The bodice is lined, the front has a ruched overlay and the back can be lined if desired. I chose to line the back, which helped to smooth out any underwear lines or other imperfections beneath! I used my main fabric as lining for this dress.


The bodice has a faux-wrap design with pleats below the bust. It is surprisingly supportive, stays firmly in place and shows things off very nicely. Insider tip: hoick up the boobage once the dress is on and you can gain a cup size or two as well! The ruched front panel is very flattering and cleverly covers lumpy bits. Who's going to look at your tummy with that neckline on offer?!


The dress is straightforward to sew with a couple of little tips included for a really great fit and finish. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this. I love it! It's such a sexy and fun design and I feel like a million dollars in mine. Go on and get it.


I received this pattern free of charge. All opinions are my own.
Apologies for the brazen hussiness of this post. I blame the Sizzler Sundress!

  1. That is one glorious neckline. Va va voom indeed! Wonder what it would look like with a sleeve? To me stretch equals synthetic fabric which equals cold weather wear...

  3. First: this is the second tester I've seen of this pattern and both are great--you look wonderful. Second: this is the best phrase ever in a sewing blog "hoick up the boobage"--I snorted in my coffee! Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh and a pattern to add to my Buy list

    1. LOL, I'm so pleased you like the dress and the indelicate description of how to wear it. We should strut out together!

  4. Yay! What a great Sizzler. I got the privilege to also test this pattern and I agree its boobage display + weight loss in pattern form. What is not to love. Long live "hoicked up boobage". ��
