Trying the Maxi Style

Added Aug 19, 2013

This is my very first maxi dress, which I am extremely proud of the outcome and I believe it suits me to the very ground. I use a simple V neck bodice from project Runway 2956. I extend only the length of the skirt.

It is so comfortable and easy to make. This is so prefect for a relaxing night.

What do u think?

    Looking good! Maxi’s are very comfy and yours is a great length. Sounds like this will not be your last maxi project…. and the color is gorgeous!

    It is your WOW-look and WOW-dress – elegant and smart. I guess nobody can wear such colour bettere than you do, very nice indeed, suits you and fits you very well.

    your should change the title for “trying the Maxi” to “working the Maxi” since it works on you!
