This was my first attempt at making a dress. What I have learned so far is that the most simple way to make your own dress is by finding an old dress you don’t wear but love the style. The next thing to do is to turn it inside out. You will quickly learn the pattern of the dress. Cut it apart by following the stitched pattern and you will soon have your dress pattern. That is how I was learning how to sew when I first started. Now I don’t need to cut. YAY!
You can find step by step instructions on my blog.
