From A Verb for Keeping Warm:

This bias cut dress is wonderfully simple to sew and flattering for all shapes. This classic silhouette can be worn throughout the year. Make it in a light color for your classic summer dress to be worn with sandals and a sun hat. Or try it in a darker color and pair it with tights, boots and a cozy sweater for the winter months. We also love it as a blank slate for any kind of natural dyeing or surface design projects!

While the pattern seems simple with only two pieces, it’s also a good introduction to advanced techniques including sewing on the bias, bias facing, and French seams.
