Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

This design is very much like an apron dress.

Measure the width of the dress's front to cover your front generously. For our bridesmaid design, we kept it knee length and the front piece's measurement is about 45 inches long.Cut out 3 main pieces and 4 tie pieces.

Step 2:

Attach the two side pieces to the front piece and sew on the ties. Hem everything nicely to have a clean, finished look.

Step 3:

The finished design should give you a nice open back and a very good fitting once you wrapped your waist ties.

Our model Olivia Portt wears the design beautifully.

    Kudos for trying to get a whole dress from a single square of fabric, but shouldn't the "bib" part have a bit more shaping or tailoring to it?

    As it is, there seems to be quite a risk to the young lady's modesty, a bit like wearing nothing but a cooking apron. Would some darts (correct term?) out of the sides make it more fitting, and reduce the risk of a wardrobe malfunction?

    Thank you for your comment and concern. We did test this design out for modesty and it is safe. The "bib" area is generously wide, the neck ties are short and halter collar design of the dress helps to secure the front part of the body from any unwanted exposure. The bareback design is on purpose and the sides of the dress are also safe if the waist ties are secured nicely to the body.

    It is a DIY design so the maker of this dress can adjust, add or take away according to her own personal taste.

    Best, diyheart.
