Maxi Dress Sew-along

posted in: Uncategorized | 2


It feels like summer is off to a slow start over here in the Pacific Northwest, and I have rarely had the opportunity to wear my one and only maxi dress.  I am glad it is finally warming up though.  Can you believe that I never tried a maxi dress before we tested the Journey?  I was shocked to find that I love it and I want more!  Ok, maybe *you* already knew the splendid comfort brought by a maxi dress, but now I do too.

Fortunately, Amy from That’s Sew Amy and Ashley from Sewn By Ashley are hosting a maxi dress sew-along.  5 Out Of 4 Patterns is sponsoring; but you can use ANY pattern, hack a pattern, or draft your own.

Need a little more motivation?  Use code MAXISEWALONG2016 to get 20% off all patterns. The coupon is good through July 26.  One random sew-along participant will be selected at the end for a chance to win a pattern from 5 Out Of 4.

I’m considering making the nursing Versatility tank into a maxi or, possibly, a nursing Lakeshore with an elastic waist and lengthened into a maxi like Jessica has done here?  How about you?

    Love them, how do you think they would look like on a 5′ , rounderror woman? I have always been fit, but due to a bad situation, I am totally out of shape, and worse, I am having a hard time getting things to fit, and not look like l am a lot older than I am.
    I am so short waisted, that doesn’t help!
