Maxi dress






Yeah I found a cute easy to make maxi dress!!

Pattern - Simplicity 2616 view A

Size - 8

Fabric - Mystery fabric from Walmart for 1.50$ a yard.

Notions -3 3/4 yds. of 1" elastic and pkg. of 1/2" wide double bias tape.The bias tape was used to make the casing for the elastic.

Conclusion - This was the cutest off the shoulder maxi dress. I don't know if I will make it again or not.


For Christmas I got a Janome Magnolia 7330 sewing machine. This is the first time I sewn on it. I just love it!! I think we are going to have a good relationship! LOL!

Well thats it for me happy crafting!!!

I was happy to see you post a review as I had lost the link to your blog after a computer crash. I was really sorry to read about the loss of your sister.
We have lost the walmart fabric here as well. It was always fun to see what was on the former $1 table. Two within driving distance used to get some very nice pieces in the mix. I really miss the nice bargains. mssewcrazy

I love those easy to make pattern. I try to stick to pattern that like less then 10 to 12 pieces max. 6 is even better. I love the fabric and you did a awesome job! You look great!
