I started the ball rolling for the Abbey 3.0 Birthday Sewing Challenge with The Maxi Dress. As a wardrobe staple, it is a must sew, just for its simplicity and its elegance. It can be worn daytime or night time. It can be worn during the cool spring or the hot summer. It can be worn with a cardigan to keep it casual or with a jacket to look more fancy, formal or even work-appropriate. And as long as it is designed to suit your body shape, it can be most flattering. These were some of my inspirations for my maxi dress:
- Mimi G. – T-shirt Maxi Dress is just GORGEOUS!! BTW… Mimi is simply freaking AWESOME!!
- At Second Street – Maxi Dress Kalleen’s dress is made with a simple raglan tee pattern with elasticized neck and sleeves
- Sweet Verbena – Boho Maxi Dress is probably the most viral maxi dress tutorial online!
- Made It On A Monday – Sunshine Poured Out Maxi Dress is so cute, even maternity-sized!
And don’t even get me started on all those striped and chevron maxi dress that were all the rage this year!!! I so gotta make one of those too! But I digress…
