This is lovely! I was lookin to try my hand at some maxi dresses and you make it look so easy. Is it a pull over or did you install a zipper?

It's a pullover because I have an aesthetic aversion to center back seams. The jersey has just enough stretch to make it possible.
Dangerously clever and resourceful.

!!!!! ok, excitement expressed. i don't usually like maxi dresses, ok i like them but i feel sort of like a sawed off log in them. this though. !!!! more excitement. yours is lovely, and you give me hope that i could wear them! it reminds me of a 1910ish tea gown instruction thingamig i was looking at online awhile ago. yours is elegant like that but wearable without seeming costumey. playing dress up can be fun but.. oh. yeay for wearable and elegant and not getting owned by the dress. i babble. it's just so pretty though. thank you for sharing and making a tutorial:D

I was happier then with no mindset.
