There is something classy about an easy dress that let’s you simply shine. A maxi dress is just that. You can wear this silhouette in the Winter with a scarf, a blazer and some boots -or- in the Summer belted at the waist or free flowing, with sandals and a statement necklace – and always look fabulous.
To make a maxi dress you don’t need a lot of sewing skills, or even a fancy pattern. All you need are some basic sewing essentials and a T-shirt that you like the fit of.
