Pattern Description:

This fun little one-shoulder number would be perfect for a wedding, a date or for a night out on the town with the girls. I recently wore one to a wedding in Greenwich, Connecticut and it was a big hit! I can't tell you how many compliments I received. You could even buy more fabric and make a maxi dress using the same basic instructions. No more big purchases every time you need a new outfit... just make a 25 Minute Dress!

Just as before, the step-by-step instructions are easy to understand and geared toward all skill levels (even beginners). All you need is a yard and a half of stretch fabric, scissors, elastic and a sewing machine or a needle and thread.

This tutorial is set up so that you will use your own measurements as the basis for the dress. That way, the tutorial can be used for any size. This tutorial does not include actual pattern pieces; instead, a diagram will be scaled up according to your specific measurements.

Happy sewing!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This dress can be made to fit your body!


  • thread
  • About 6 inches of 1/2 inch wide elastic
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • sewing machine (or even just a needle)
  • 1.5 yards of stretch fabric
