Basics: The Easiest Dress in the World

I'm confident this is the easiest, fastest dress I ever made. The whole thing would've been done in less than an hour.. If I hand't decided to make my own bias tape to finish the neckline and sleeves. I feel a dolman sleeve phase starting..

Tutorials take a lot of time & effort to create, and I choose to make mine available for free. If you enjoy this guide, you can support me with a donation that feels right for you, here.

1.5 m fabric (full-width)  |  Scissors  |  Pins  |  Thread & Sewing machine

I. My cut pieces (2 of the skirt piece), I'm a EU36/US4.
II. Place pieces right sides facing, pin the skirt sides, top shoulders and sides, and sew.
I checked the top for size, all good..
III. Then pinned the skirt to the top, right sides facing, and sewed.
And so I had it almost done..
IV. Just hemming...
V. .. And the sleeves and neckline left. For the latter I made some bias tape..
.. And used it to finish those. Here's more detail on how to do a bias-bound neckline.
I could've done this out of one front, one back piece, but wasn't sure I'd get the fit of the top right on the first go.. Next one will be even faster.
