Now that spring has arrived it is time to pull out those maxi dresses, or in my case MAKE some maxi dresses! Todays tutorial brought to you by Michael Levine is just that, a great and easy to make maxi dress. I have also taken some pics of a shorter version option if you want to make the dress above the knee.
Fabric suggestions for this dress are light weight cottons or rayon blends such as these great RAYON PRINTS or these CHALLIS PRINTS. I used this BLACK CHALLIS and this great TROPICAL PRINT. I also am totally in love with these TIE DYE GAUZE which will look amazing in this dress and of course if you want to use a great bright solid these SOLID GAUZE will work nicely. I hope you enjoy making this dress, and we can’t wait to see how yours turns out!
You can choose to make the dress any length you want and as shown below you can also skip the shoulder gathering too. The best thing about this dress is that depending on your fabric you can make it very casual and great for vacation attire or a little dressier for date night.
