Learn how to make a 20-minute, simple shift dress with this tutorial from sewing expert Vicky Taylor. Vicky shows how to sew a jersey shift dress that requires no zippers, pleats or darts. How does this work? Simply take a dress that fits you well, and trace the outline plus a half-inch seam allowance onto your new, stretchy fabric. Pin the fabric front and back together with sewing pins, then cut out a simple dress silhouette without flimsy pattern pieces getting in the way! You won't believe how quickly this dress comes together; In this three-part video series, Vicky shows you how to sew a simple party dress in less than a half hour from start to finish.

Watch part one of this video how-to above, then watch parts two and three for instructions on how to finish the dress, courtesy of U.K.-based Sew Magazine.
