I’ve been so busy creating and designing for Myla’s Bags that I never started any new projects for me! Well I received an email from both Anthropologie and Fabric Marts Fabrics yesterday and the put me in the mood to sew for me. I’ve been wanting to make a maxi dress for some awhile now and since it’s been in the 70’s for the past 2 weeks, I decided that there is no better time than now!
I found this beauty online and thought, I have a pattern I can redesign to make this. The dress at Anthropologie is silk with a polyester lining. I like silk, but I don’t think it’s very practical for me. I’m not too much of a “girly girl” so I think silk would make me feel too dressy. I saw this brown and white cotton plaid fabric (on sale for $1.99!! I can’t pass up a bargain) and thought “That is me!” So I am going to take that fabric and make it into that dress. I hope to have this dress made as soon as the fabric gets here (shipping takes 4-7 days).
I am excited about creating this dress and you know I will definitely post pictures when I complete this dress.
