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.
