I’m so in love with this dress; I like my choice of fabric. The dress accentuates my curves perfectly. I have made something like that, but short length; I needed a longer length so that I can wear it to church or casual hang out with friends. It’s easy to make; It took me approximately three hours to make including drafting the patterns.
Follow my easy step by step tutorial below to make your own simple sexy dress. I will make the pattern available on my next post and link it to this post.

LET’S GET STARTED

step 1: Print out the pattern and cut out your fabric

I will make the pattern available for download on my next post. Fold your fabric and cut the front and back. Pin pattern on fabric to avoid shaking. Cut out the sleeve pattern facing both ways. For instance, when you cut out the first sleeve on your fabric, turn the sleeve pattern back and cut. I didn’t leave any allowance while cutting because the fabric stretches a lot. You can leave half an inch allowance to be safe. It’s better for it to be big so that you can make an adjustment after fitting.

step 2: sew the shoulders together
