Dolman Sleeve Dress

New York, New Yo...






This is a terrific project for someone who is new to sewing. It’s quite simple and doesn’t require a pattern, so it is also a great project if you have some free time or need a quick get-up for a day of romping in the sun. All you have to do is fold a piece of fabric and sew a few seams!

Material Notes

2 yds of 36”, 40” or 42” wide fabric. Trim or a belt of your choice Measuring tools
There is no pattern for this dress. The measurements include a 5/8” seam allowance.

    Love the simplicity, but I think it would look a bit better more fitted. I like the variation, definitely getting my mental gerbil running like crazy on the wheel! I love it!!!

    Thanks so much for this brilliant idea! I’m going to apply it to a simple v neck top. Your idea is elegant and inspired.

    Awesome! Thanks so much! I just made this out of satin. It came out nicely for my first garment…(:
