I’ve always wanted a maxi dress for summer. This was my first attempt at making one. I didn’t use any patterns. I made a tube-like lower part with elastic at the top and then I added the upper part with straps that are crisscrossed at the back. I think the cleavage is a bit too low and I might change it a bit to feel more comfortable in the dress
