Geometric Maxi Dress
Here's a photo of me looking slightly unimpressed. But more importantly here is a photo of me wearing a maxi dress I made!
It's based on the same free pattern I used to make my Piperlime.com Knockoff Dress.
The bodice is really quite easy to put together.
Cut out your pieces and sew them together.
Pin your interfacing on the right side and sew it up.
Sew the front bodice pieces to the back bodice pieces. For the bottom part of the dress - draft a size and length you want from your measurements. Sew up the centre back seam on the back piece - which will later match up with your bodice pieces to sew in your zipper. Sew the front and back pieces together. Sew the bottom piece to the bodice piece. Insert zipper. Hem.
As it happens it was at this point I put it on and hated it on first sight. So it sat sadly on my dress form for a week.
See how sad it looks? Sad.
In the end I found myself going on a spontaneous date with Boyfriend to Newtown to see The Artist and for some reason this was just the perfect dress to wear.
And now I love it!
