To make this dress, start with the pattern for Melly Sews’ Bias Dress. That dress is only in her size, but there’s a size S/M/L dress from Sew it All that you can get here and it has very similar bones. Tutorial here.

You’ll also need at least 2 yards of 60 inch wide fabric. Probably more like 2 1/4 yards so you have extra to make your own bias tape. And fabric with a lot of drape is recommended.
