I made two super quick yet super cute dresses from Simplicity 3875 last weekend:

One has a contrast neckline and waistline and one does not. I think it's great how different this makes them look. They tie in the back or in the front. (One is also shorter than the other because I don't believe in fabric requirements Smiley

I like this pattern because there's no fooling around with lining, interfacing, buttons or zippers. Just cut and sew! And iron. Always iron!

The fabrics are all from my grandma's stash. I have more photos to upload but the craftster photo hosting isn't working for me right now Sad I will try to fix it later.

Since they're unlined they definitely need slips. I attempted another view of this pattern a couple years ago and couldn't figure out the neckline. I've since browsed craftster and found that others had this problem too. This time I finally understood and it looks great!

Thanks for looking! It's been months since I've posted because one of my students stole my camera and I was really depressed (and camera-less). I finally convinced my insurance company to cover it so I have my new new camera! (And the student who stole it has karma waiting for him.)

They call me a redneck, and I reckon that I am

Great job! Super cute. I can't pick between which one is my favorite because they're both beautiful Smiley

You are so right about the importance of pressing the garment as you sew and at the end to get great results like these. More people need to do that. Well done!

They almost do not look like they are from the same pattern! What a nice job you did get two different looks!

The brown one catches my eye the most!  Glad you figured out the neckline--they look good!

You did an amazing job on these!  I like it tied in the back best, but I really like how you used the contrasting fabric on the other.  In my personal opinion I think the shorter length is a little more flattering, but both look really great on you.  Thanks for sharing! 

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.
