Title: Maxi Dress Mission - Dress 1 - Tribal Maxi
Post by: KylaStrong on April 22, 2011 05:59:38 PM
I recently picked sewing back up, after a year or so break.  I fell in love with maxi dresses because they are so simple to throw on and you're ready with a couple accessories.  I have so many clothes that it often takes me forever to match a top with bottoms, thus why maxi dresses make my routine much quicker haha. 

I have started a Maxi-Mission.  I want to wear nothing but maxi dresses this summer.. I've got a lot of sewing in my future.

Thanks for looking!  Comments and critiques welcome.

BabyGirlBling - I used a jersey knit I found on sale for ridiculously cheap.  This dress probably cost me less than 4 dollars to make.

blondgirll - I drafted my own pattern for this dress.  I took a class at the Fashion Institute of Technology on how to draft my own patterns specific for my measurements, was awesome!
