As the clock reminds you that it's almost noon, you have butterflies in your stomach. You couldn't be more excited because today you're debuting The Day Date Dress to your sweetheart. With the hem falling just below the knee and the cinched waist emphasizing your hourglass shape, you feel confident in this classic silhouette.
It's incredible that last weekend you were able to learn how to sew a dress that looks this retro-chic. The doorbell rings and you grab your satchel and sunhat, ready for the day in your new DIY dress. This free sewing tutorial requires 2 yards of fabric or more or a lightweight knit fabric.

Hi everyone! A lot of people seem to be confused about this project. This is a tutorial from the blogger on how to create the Day Date Dress. There is no printable pattern; instead the blogger lists the instructions on how she created and drafted the dress using clothing she already owned. Hope this clears up any confusion! - Editor, AllFreeSewing.com

Oh my goodness! This dress is retro chic at its finest. I have always had a fondness for this style, as I think it is flattering on most body types. This very much puts me in mind of something that Princess Kate would wear to an event. I think that I will be bribing my sewing-talented Aunt in the very near future to sew me this gorgeous dress!

This dress is so classy! I love the peter pan collar and the fact that it gives off a retro/vintage vibe without looking too much like a costume.

This is a very lovely dress to use for dress or casual. Simply elegant. I love you used an old shirt for the pattern. I always say I am going to use something for a pattern and forget too and give it away. And this looks so super easy. Thanks. Have you tried it in anything other than knit?
