More than a year ago, I was asked to sew this type of dress by my dear friend. And finally, the time has come!
I think it illustrates the idea of the capsule wardrobe perfectly. Less is more! And in this case: one dress - 7 ways to wear it! I love this dress design for its versatility.
I love all dresses with long sleeves and also that it's comfortable because of its baggy design.
I made an instant download PDF printable pattern, and You can find it in this website pattern section.
My favorite way to wear this dress is when it's naked shoulders, big trapeze drapes on the hips + matching belt. I like the idea that You can change your look as the day goes.
I think it's a practical garment suitable for a minimalist look.
This dress is suitable for real DIY sewing dress beginners, it only has 4 side seams.
The way You finish the edges of the garment is up to You.
I folded the edges two times and sew them with the elastic stitch. Also, a good choice could be the "baby lock" seam. You want maximum stretchiness of the seam - just without breaking it.

Another option: You can find the fabric with contrasting colors or patterns. Then, sew it with the french seam. In that case, You could wear it from both sides :O
