1-Hour Dresscomments (10) May 28th, 2010
What says summer more than a chic, lightweight dress? Sew a sophisticated asymmetrical style that can be worn for the office or date night with just a change of accessories. This dress is made from a stable knit fabric and is the perfect addition to your work or nighttime wardrobe. It has a gathered shoulder on one side for an updated silhouette on the classic sheath dress.

Make the Pattern
1. Take your measurements. Measure across your shoulders; this is measurement “A.” Measure from your shoulders to your desired length; this is measurement “B.”
2. Draw two rectangles. Draw a rectangle that’s half measurement A plus 1-inch wide and measurement B long, as shown below (rectangle 1). Flush to the right of rectangle 1, draw a second rectangle that’s half measurement A plus 10 inches wide and measurement B long (rectangle 2). The line the rectangles share is center front and back. The two rectangles form one pattern piece.
