Maxi dresses are so much fun to wear. In my case though I have aways avoided strapless and tube-like dresses. Mainly due to the major mount rushmore of a change from my waist to my hips. But the way that Mimi instructed us on how to construct this dress gave it new appeal for me. I used a Rayon knit that flows so wonderfully.
This is one of the fabrics I bought from the fashion district in California, back in August 2011 when I attended the ASG conference.
I am so loving this thing....I wore it all day with heals until my daughter came to get a few good pics for this blog.Look how nice this thing flows and it is so slimming. No matter how I stand it really does its job to make my curves nice.
This is all I needed to get back my mojo...I have been a little busy with life, but not sewing as much. So, this was just the juice needed to fuel the fire. Next up will be a pencil skirt from Mimi as well.
I have other items to share with everyone, but that will have to wait until I have more time to gather my pics and thoughts. I do seem to be a little scattered when I'm sewing, so its hard to wrangle in my thoughts enough to document my actions as I sew.
