I wanted to make a dress with no zipper since I hate sewing zippers so I searched and found this Simplicity pattern. The pattern allows for so much ease (because you use tons of elastic) that you could even use a woven material to make the dress, which I have made also (see other creations).
1 1/8 yd knit, jersey, or anything you like
