So, have you draft your patterns ?
I made mine using tissue paper. They looked just like these : (pardon me for all those crinkles ! LOL
Above : I separated the front from the back. I'm afraid that you won't see them clearly in my previous pattern
Now, take one of your fabric and start pinning the front piece at the wrong side
Note : I pinned the pattern in reverse, I thought you might be confused seeing my picture above
Please consider that I didn't add seam allowances into the patterns, so you must add them yourself. My seam allowances are 1 cm on the side and neckline seams, and 3 cm at the bottom.
You will get a piece of the front. You need to have two front pieces, so you must cut one front piece more. While I used the same fabric for my front pieces, you can use different fabric to add the contrast
Now, let's make the back pieces :
Take another different fabric, and pin the back pattern at the wrong side of the fabric
Just as what we did to front piece, add your seam allowances
I still add 1 cm seam allowance at the side and neckline, and 3 cm seam allowance at the bottom
Perfecto ! You just have to cut one more back piece. Now we have two back pieces. I made them in green and blue fabrics
Too short ? Let's save our energy for tomorrow, cause we'll do many sewing activities :D

Trivia : A friend of mine asked how do I pronounce "Leela". I pronounce it "Lii-la". It is just like "Mila" or "Dhila"
