Powder Blue Maxie Dress

This is a maxi summer dress I made from the same material as this dress.  This fabric is so soft & because it is a cotton/knit blend it is perfect for hot summer days.

I stretched the material as I sewed the back bodice to make a little ruffle.

I used this RTW maxi dress that I am wearing as a pattern inspiration.

I serged all the raw edges & used my sewing machine to make the seams.

I also pulled the fabric during serging the hem for a little bottom ruffle.  I love this summer easy to make & wear!

Happy Monday!

A little side note:  Burdastyle put my dress on the front of their website under Featured Projects!
What a surprise & honor! I am so excited I took this pic to share!

It looks great! And interesting that it looks quite different in style from your black dress, too!
