Sometimes, simple is best. Get back to basics with the 2 Hour Shift Dress tutorial. Part of why this project is such an easy dress to make is because it relies on an existing dress you already have in your wardrobe, making it a great refashioning project. Build up from an already fitted piece of clothing in your wardrobe by drafting your very own DIY dress pattern from it. This free sewing tutorial allows you to opt for a sleeveless frock or add a cap sleeve to your clothing.

It's been quite a while since I have made a shift dress, but this is a lovely idea! I have made the frillier ones for my daughter and this style would now be more suited to her. Love the fabric choice, so fun and uplifting, but you fabric choice could make this little dress a formal to an everyday errand dress! So versatile and fun to make!

I love shift dresses like this because they can be dressed up or down and are so easy to wear. Definitely going to sew this one!

I am going to try this! The instructions for making cap sleeves are among the simplest and best that I have seen, and the whole tutorial is very easy to understand.

How charming! This 2-hour shift dress is perfect for warmer days or warmer climates. I especially like the simple cap sleeve design using a folded in half circle. How clever! If you do not have an existing shift dress as the tutorial indicates to use as a pattern an inexpensive one from a thrift store sale would work as well.

I found this really helped... http//lax115.1920DASH30.hop.clickbank == .net/
