This is my second attempt at sewing actual wearable clothes. My first attempt didn’t turn out the way I wanted and is yet to be repaired. I made this simple maxi dress for my company’s annual dinner which had a 60s & 70s theme since it’s really hard to find nice fitting dresses in my size. I modified the pattern from the book slightly (opted for a A-shape skirt from the empire line down instead of the curve as drawn in the book). There are darts both in front and at the back of the dress. It has a sort of princess cut to it too. To better define the dress, I made a long sash out of the same fabric. The neck and sleeve finishing is a bit messy though. Sorry I don’t have any clearer pictures.
