This looks like a dress Zooey Dechanel wore in 500 days of summer! So cute!

That's a super huge compliment! It's kind of what I was going for, since she wears so many little blue dresses in that movie Smiley

and thank you to jillrbassett and rainysunshine789 for the pep talk about the zippers Smiley

Hello there! Here is another dress I made using McCall's 5879 (this is the other one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386286.0), but instead of pleats under the bust, I made darts instead.

I love the bodice pattern because no zippers are required! It's also really easy, so it's the perfect pattern for a simple summer dress.

Thanks for taking a look!

Hi! This is one of my latest sewing projects, created with the use of McCall's 5879.

I used the bodice pieces of the pattern, but just used a gathered rectangle for the skirt. The tucks at the hem were an afterthought, so the skirt is a bit shorter than I had originally intended, but thankfully still long enough to be decent Smiley

The dress is a pull-over style, so it doesn't have a zipper (I guess I should come clean and admit I have a small zipper-phobia!) and has two ties in the back.

My mom and a coworker said it looked like a baby's dress, but a cute one at least, so I'll take it Smiley

Thank you for taking a look!

Thank you so much for everyone's positive feedback!

For those of you who are interested in making a similar style, I can direct you to this tutorial here: http://icandyhandmade.blogspot.com/2011/07/fun-in-sundress-fancy-free.html

I didn't use this tutorial, but the approach is very similar to mine, but I added an elastic for the waist. I hope it helps!

Thank you, Antidigger and krisaissosmart!

@krisaissosmart, I should have mentioned I lined it! The fabric is fairly sheer, so it's lined with an off-white muslin. Thanks for asking!

In honor of July 4th, I made a dress in appropriate colors!

This dress pattern is still a huge work-in-progress. My guess-and-cut approach is just barely working Wink

The dress has casings at the neckline for a tie to thread through and an elastic waist. It's very comfortable!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Thank you, aine666 and bohomiancupcakes:) !

@bohemiancupcakes:): No pattern is really needed for this dress, just measurements. Everything is rectangles! The widths of the rectangles are determined by the circumference needed to go over the head + however much fabric you want for fullness.

Let me know if you need more detailed information Smiley

These are a few dress dresses I made in the past week Smiley

This dress was inspired by the Very Easy Vogue sewing pattern, V8380. I made up a pattern right on the fabric. It didn't work out exactly as I had hoped, but I'm pleased with the results.

These next two dresses have the same bodice, but the second has a less-full skirt because I ran out of fabric. Simple tube dresses with a ruffle at the top Smiley (These dresses are very similar to this one that I made last month: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=381171.0)

Thanks for taking a look!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Very Full Pink Skirt on: June 16, 2011 02:51:19 PM
I made this skirt about a year ago, but yesterday was the first time I got a decent photograph of it.

I made it without a pattern because the shape is super straightforward: A rectangle for the waistband and a super long rectangle for the gathered skirt. It has a center-zip in the back and off-white lining because this fabric is very sheer.

I've worn it at work a couple times, and a few people have told me they love it (and even asked where they could get one Smiley)

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

@mckaboolaurox: This didn't take very long, maybe an hour total. It's basically a rectangular tube with the top corners sewn and the top piece joined at the neck. It's super stretchy, so that's pretty much the reason the simple shape works Smiley
