How to: Make a Dress in 20 Minutes!

How to: Make a Dress in 20 Minutes!

A little while back I shared instructions on how to make a convertible dress from scratch in 15 minutes. Well now I'm back with a tutorial on how to make a v-neck style dress in 20 minutes! This little frock is very versatile - it can be worn over leggings, or if you leave the hem a bit longer it makes a wonderful everyday dress. 

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 - 1.5 yards of stretch fabric
  • 1/4 inch wide elastic (see tutorial for instructions on length)
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine or a needle and thread

I love that this dress can be worn for a fancy occasion if made with a dressier fabric, or it can be worn to the beach as a cover up if you use a casual printed jersey fabric.

Check out the rest of the dress tutorial over on Design Fixation.
