Oh how I love maxi dresses and maxi skirts! It seems to be the hottest new trend this summer. They seem so simple and elegant. I've been wanting to make a summer maxi for myself but shopping choices are so limited in my area. There was the cutest maxi skirt in a boutique window but, of course, they didn't have my size. Luckily, to my surprise, I found a wonderful tutorial from Jaime Christina of Pretty Ditty here. To make things even better, the local "Discount Fabric Warehouse" just rec'd a large shipment of assorted knits and there they were, rolls and rolls of "Ella Moss" labeled fabrics....I love Ella Moss. I just can't afford to have an entire wardrobe of her collections. After my purchases of "a yard of this, a few yards of that,...."My "Ella Moss" striped knits came home with me.
I LOVE IT! My new summer maxi needs a quick steaming and it's ready to go to town! Oh, I added a waist band following this tutorial.
Thank you tutorial world for the inspirations!
What's on your "make me this summer" list?
