It took just a few hours from cutting to hemming - with distractions ; ) I think it took longer for me to decide on the fabric/pattern combination. I cut the size 12 with no pattern adjustments, b... more...

Butterick - 6582 MIsses' Vintage Dress
The pattern went together easily, which was key considering I had to whip it up the night before an event (I actually hemmed it that morning...)
