This is my first maxi dress. I used Burdstyle’s 5/2013 #123 pattern. I struggled with the bust portion of this dress. The two and a half dot rating for skill level was a bit deceiving or I was just having problems understanding Burdastyle’s instructions. I ended up having to rip seams open and figure out how to do the draped bodice portion on my own really. But a bit of a challenge helps you grow. Once I got past the bodice portion everything else was easy.
I like how this dress flows in a nice breeze and it won’t be last maxi dress.
