This was the first dress I ever made, three years ago (!), but I never took pictures of it until recently.

It does, however, hinge on having a great wide belt to keep it from looking like what it is: two rectangles tied together.

1.5 yards of 60" jersey knit, a long sturdy ribbon or fabric tube for a tie
