My Maxi

I made a maxi dress for the summer. I’m not quite happy how it turned out, and didn’t wear it even once. Maybe next summer! :)

    The upper part is really pretty. I hope you find a way to wear the dress!

    I agree with Anne – a belt, or maybe some bright coordinating trim or ribbon to accentuate the empire line of the bust, which will then highlight the lovely straight fall of the skirt :-) Or you could chop off the bodice and replace it with one in a solid colour. You must save this dress, the fabric is so pretty!

      That’s a good idea too! I have to think about it. The bodice is the mart I’m least into in this dress, and I do love the fabric too!

    I love the fabric, the print is cute. Maybe you needed to wear a belt or have an accessory in a strong colour?

      Maybe, and I think I’ll have to shorten the hem a few inches. Thanks for the comment!
