Description

Yet more fabric I found at SCRAP in SF! I’d wanted to try out KBang’s eight dollar dress for awhile, and thought this fabric would work well. There turned out to be enough of it to make a maxi dress. I was also inspired by verypurpleperson’s recent racerback dress for the versatile ways it can be worn. So I started with a basic strapless maxi dress, then added a drawstring at the hem so I can adjust the length. I also added buttons to the inside of the top and made straps that can be worn in various ways.

    This is very cool! How does the drawstring work to make it shorter? Is the extra material tucked underneath?

      Thanks! Yes the extra material goes up underneath – I pulled in the drawstring and fastened it around the waist, so it doubles up the material and makes sort of a bubble dress hem. I think this would work best with light weight materials.
