Make a One-Hour Dresscomments (19) September 4th, 2014
3. Mark the pattern as shown in the diagram. Use a French curve to add a bit of shape to the side seams, starting 7 inches below the top edge on both sides. Draw the neckline opening. Start the opening 3 inches in from the left edge and end 12 inches from the right edge. Be sure the neckline is symmetrical on either side of the centerline. Make curves for the side seams identical on each side. Add a 1⁄2-inch seam allowance to all edges except the bottom, and add a 3⁄4-inch hem allowance.
Sew the Dress
1. Cut out the dress. From the pattern, cut two pieces from a stable knit fabric.
2. Sew the side seams. With right sides together and edges aligned, sew the side seams with a 1⁄2-inch-wide seam allowance, starting 7 inches from the top edge.
