It's very hot right now, at least in Finlands scale. I needed something cool but legs-covering, since I had a new tattoo made last week and it can't be in direct sunlight. So here it is, my new maxidress:



As a pattern for the dress I used an old top, and the fullwidht of the fabric is folded to the waist. Super easy, super comfortable. Smiley

Thank you all for your nice comments!  Kiss

I'm wondering why I haven't done a maxidress before, this is soooo nice to wear! Maybe I've thought that it wouldn't fit me, since I'm just 162 cm "tall".  Grin If the heatwave goes on, I'll be definitely making some more. Smiley
