You got to chew it, to taste it!
It’s about time I share some pattern making with you guys :)
I made this dress for hubby and I first wedding anniversary trip in Boracay ♥ This is very easy. beginner sewer will definitely love this project :)
Let’s get this started already! The image below will be the pattern guide and the instructions.
You can readily do this on your fabric. I used 2 yards,60 width fabric and fold it (into 1/4) cross wise and then length wise.
1 – Will be the starting point
1-2 – is the length of your maxi dress (mine is 36 inches)
1-3 – is the full width of your fabric (mine is 60 width). Note that this will be the length on the sides of your dress. 100 – 120 width fabric is the best option.
2-4 -same as 1-3
1-5 – is 4 inches or more, it can be up to 5 inches if you have broad shoulders
1-6 – is 4 inches (front) and 1/2 inch (back)or more, this will be the neckline so you can adjust it according to your prefered measurements.
5-7 – is 2 inches or more
7-8 – is 1/2 of your arm hole measurement
This is how your fabric should look after cutting it.
If you have a serger, just sew the edge to neat it out. If none, then you can sew 1/4″ seam(fold 1/8″ twice).
And there you have it, an instant maxi dress for the summer fun :) accessorize it with your favorite belt. I sew a thin string to tie on the waist, but in below picture, my sis Krisette use it on her head :)
I hope you like this post :) I will appreciate some comments. If you happen to make this project, please leave a comment with your link so I can feature you here ♥
Happy blogging and sewing!
