So here's a little something I stitched together for the holiday
I decided sometime ago that I wanted a maxi dress and I searched some shops to try and get one on sale. What is it with Maxi's they either show masses of boobage or are mega low in the back making wearing a bra impossible. So I decided that would not do, and searched for a pattern to make a Maxi that covered my criteria (No masses of boobage and the ability to wear a bra). Fail... /sigh so what did I do? I attempted to use an existing dress to create a pattern for the top part of the dress. Again with the fail thing! Was this Maxi dress destined to never be. Nope, I had a brainwave to use the bodice from the New Look 6699 dress and another brainwave to make the back one piece and Shir it. I also changed the straps to make them longer so they could be tied in the back
I am really pleased with how it has turned out and it meets both of my criteria too. Win!
Righty-o best be off and continue to pack for Viva Las Vegas and Sunny LA.
