Of course it's a minimalist style, but it's tasteful, and considering that it was made in literally ten minutes and required one seam (yay for minimal sewing), who can complain?
So, without further ado, here are a couple images to help you make your own 10 minute dress:
1. Lay fabric, folded on an edge, on a flat surface. Wash & iron beforehand as necessary (helps with accuracy and prevents unexpected shrinkage in the future)
2. Mark your neckline. It could be curved, straight, whatever you like.
3. Measure straight down from this neck point to where you want the hem of your dress to be. I think mine was about 60 cm, but all bodies are different lengths to input your length accordingly!
4. Measure 7 inches down from the point of your neckline (see the image for a visual), and mark. From this point, your waist measurement will go to create a 90 degree angle.
5. Measure your waist circumference, and input is where the diagram shows.
6. Measure, on yourself, from your waistline up to where you want your neckline to sit (bust level). Use that measurement on your dress. Input your bust circumference from this point (refer to image for a visual). This forms your back shoulder area as well, so be sure to style that as you'd want it. Look at my pictures to see where mine sat, below the shoulder blades.
7. Measure your hips and their relation to your waist, and ensure that the length of your dress is not any smaller than that measurement, so as to create the drape effect!
8. The seam at the back of the dress is called the center-back! Shape it as you desire. If you like my style, mimic what I have there!
9. Time to cut, according to your pattern. For the hem, give it a slight curve.
10. Once cut, sew one long line along the center-back seam. I used a serger, but a sewing machine will work too, just don't make the seam allowance too big or the dress will be too tight. Remember, spandex stretches a fair amount so if you don't make the seam allowance too big, then it will stretch to a form-fitting style, no problem.
11. Wear your dress wherever you so desire... it's ideal for costume parties, festivities, etc., however if you finished the neckline, hem, and underarms, it'd have a more professional appearance. However, the spandex/lycra used here does not fray easily, and thus it can go without finishing for at least awhile!
