My room mate for years has wanted a cotton mumu, and I kept telling her no, and this year we reached a compromise.  After looking around to for maxi dresses at the stores and finding nothing that she liked, I decided to make one for her.  Plus I had a coupon for Joanns that was burning a hole in my pocket.
Here is the result

Ignore the face, she loved how it turned out

I love it - it's exactly like the kind of thing I have in mind for some purple vintage floral fabric I have, did you use a pattern??

Nice! (And way more flattering than a mumu Wink) I like the print and the cut -is it a pattern or your own design?

Thanks for the compliments!
I did use a pattern, It's so Easy It's simplicity 2638.  I did have to alter the chest region in order to accommodate her chest but other than that I followed the pattern.

I LOVE it!
Last summer I kept seeing all these really cute dresses, but could never find one in my size! Maybe I'll make me one this summer! Thanks for the inspiration!!

I just love this and I love the material. So those Joanns coupons burn holes in your pockets too I thought it was just me.

Goodness why would she want a Mumu?  Now this is gorgeous!  I love maxi dresses but I'm too short.  The ones in the store I would have to cut off a good foot at the bottom so they don't drag the floor.
