The Maxi

Well i finally started on my maxi dress woohoo. I got pattern New Look 6774 size 22. Now this is the first time i have made a New Look Pattern.

the material I used was a knit rayon light weight nice and flowy….i got it from fabric.comfabric

I didnt really care for the directions on the dress…. i muddled through it.

It called for a lining, i hate linings but found it needed one… so i used the left over material to line it.

I thought i could do a tie halter but that is not working so i will tact down the straps and take the dress in. It is too big. but i cant wait to finish and sport this dress this summer… i need to find some shoes to match 🙂

Here is the dress i will have to post a better picture this week.

    Great job! I’ve been looking for a cute maxi dress. But since I don’t sew, it never occurred to me to make my own. But I have been inspired.
