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!
