I Made a Maxi Dress!

For those of you who have managed to find me on Instagram or Twitter, you may remember this picture of my fabric purchase last week!

 

Well, I used this SUPER SOFT knit to make a maxi dress!I spent some time pinning different maxi dresses I liked.  Then I picked my favorite to copy cat...that was the hard part.  But I ended up sticking with my the dress that had inspired me to make my own in the first place.  This dress from LaPosh Style costs $45.

I couldn't justify spending that much.
So I made my own...for about $16!
The color is slightly lighter =(
But it is still beautiful!

It is not as gathered in the waist as the example photo.  Oops!
It was definitely a challenge to create a dress without a pattern.  I started off intending to make a tutorial...and then I made to many mistakes....
Maybe I'll come up with a short one...
Or maybe I'll make another one...
Or maybe one of you will buy the fabric and have me make one for you?
LOL!  We'll see if I can figure out a tutorial soon.
...
And then I had some fun with PicMonkey...  Seriously...airbrushing and adding lip color is
SO MUCH FUN sometimes.  =P
I hope you like my dress...I love it!  And I love the fact that it covers my bandaged up ankle.
I developed shin splints.  =(
Have you bought or made a maxi dress this year?  I LOVE them!  Post a link to a picture of you in a maxi dress if you want.  I'd love to see it!
Be blessed!
