I tried to make this I really did It should be simple Unfortunately due to lack of necessary measurements we really need the height of a measurement not just its diagonal distance in order to accurately place it and inaccuracy of given measurements it is impossible to follow the instructions and layout For example the front piece calls for a shoulder seam of inches and the back calls for a shoulder seam of inches Even accounting for the fold-over on the front neckline the shoulder seams are still going to be off since the sleeves are the same front and back That's just the tip of the iceberg The tutorial is rife with errors I ended up looking at the finished block drawing and designing my own Much simpler to put together a lot better fitting and the measurements are actually physically possible Don't try to follow this tutorial but itRead More may help for inspiration

Love the simplicity of this dress. The kimono style should be easy to sew and very comfortable to wear. The instructions are informal with no real pattern to download however the images give clear guided information on how to make the pattern and how to sew the few pieces together. I would make this in a pretty print flowy type of fabric.

Should be. Key words. Try it out and you'll see that none of the measurements given here work.

Flowy dresses like these just make me feel so carefree. This is the perfect thing to make if you want to hop on the summer boho trend, too!
