This was the first dress I ever made, three years ago (!), but I never took pictures of it until recently. It’s the perfect beginner project; there are all of seven straight seams, and no fitting required! It does, however, hinge on having a great wide belt to keep it from looking like what it is: two rectangles tied together.
More details and pictures here.
