The pattern envelope says this is a one hour pattern and it really is. From having the fabric on my cutting table to trying the finished dress on was an hour. I have an overlocker (serger) and overlocked the seams as well as using a stretch stitch on my sewing machine. This dress has no darts, so relies of the fabric for the shape.
It is two pieces for the front and back, a cowl neck and a ties belt.
I have made this dress once before, a purple one which is so handy for work. I can see this one being a staple for work as well, with a black jacket or a cardigan.
The best part is the fact that I scored the fabric from our recent swap at the Toronto Bloggers Meet-up.
