My First Casual Maxi Dress

Added Jan 12, 2011

I have never owned a maxi dress before. Then I remembered I got this nice tie-dye knit fabric which I unfortunately have just 1 m of. I don’t want to waste such a comfortable fabric and nice print so I made a maxi.

This is just a simple dress made out of 3 rectangles with the under bust shirred. Used it for our road trip to Sydney and it just makes sitting in the car for hours a better experience.

Material Notes

dry knit, shirring elastic




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual

    Great dress, looks so comfy! Did you shirr the waist, then add the sleeves? or Shirred the waist after attaching the sleeves? How many shirred rows did you make? A quick how to would be awesome
