The next time you find yourself with nothing to wear, and perhaps, a few extra hours in the morning, try making this!

This dolman sleeve dress is made by folding a piece of fabric a few times, cutting two curves, and stitching! It could be described as fashion origami! The greatest thing about this technique is not just how easy it is to make, but how easy it is to alter. You can make turn this into a jacket, a blouse, or simply just a longer dress, which, as the picture shows, I did NOT choose to do. Oh well, it’s the spring time. I’ve got legs and sewing skills to show off!
