It's basically a variation of the Anda Pattern that we created for A Frock by Friday and I'd like to add that Anda is the easiest of dresses to make! This pattern can be done in two hours. And if you cut multiple layers of fabric at a time you could churn enough of these out to have new frocks all week! If you change up the fabric/waistline/neckline/embellishments per dress you could have a lot of frocks that look completely different. For such a simple shape I also have to say that it is surprisingly figure flattering.
If you are just starting to sew I highly recommend beginning with the Anda pattern. And once you master the pattern I'd try altering it (ie lowering the waistline, scooping the neckline, extending the sleeves, adding pockets, belt loops, etc.) Here are a few other Anda variations I've seen.
Stay tuned later today for a DIY closet alternative for those of you who live without space.
