Oscar de la Renta One-Hour Dress Project

Last spring SewStylish’s blog featured a post highlighting a dress I created for their Spring 2010 issue inspired by the Oscar de la Renta dress above. The entire how-to is featured in the post, and can be created in about an hour using jersey knit fabrics. The shape is a basic sheath dress with a little added gathering along one shoulder seam. It’s very easy to stitch up and makes a great project for beginners (even if you aren’t familiar with sewing on knits).
