Can’t say that I’m a big fan of maxi dresses, but when I saw this fabric I immediately know that it would be perfect for one. In the end I’m glad that I went for it, it will be perfect for hot summer that is about to come here..
For the bodice I used miasu’s contour bust pattern, only change I made is placing invisible zipper on a side instead on center back. Skirt is made of two large rectangles gathered at the waist.

Material Notes

cotton, invisible zipper




Garment Type
Casual, Romantic, Victorian

    Your dress is awesome – the combination of fabric is perfect, the photos are great too. I have just used miasu’s contour bust pattern but need to some how make the skirt part fit me ( coz I have a tiny waist and a big bum it is tight on my bum and bunches up around my back ) and I think I will try to do it like you have made this. Thanks =)
