After my first mission Maxi I just had to make another. I don’t usually say that I can “whip up” garments, but this one really does feel like instant gratification. Sized up to a 4 all over, and raised straps by 2 inches, which raised the neckline and arms as well. Used wider binding than advised, and left hem raw. I think I may live in these for summer.
