This is a Cynthia Rowley design for Simplicity. At first I had a hard time figuring out the waistband but once I figured that out it was smooth sailing.
|Still in the Simplicity stock line-up!
Here's a close-up of the pattern on the fabric. It's a very slippery slidey polyester. I know, I know, euwwwww. Everyone hates polyester. But sometimes it works. Sometimes it flows, and sometimes it washes 10 times better than other fabrics....so sometimes I use it. Besides, I figure if I'm going for a 70's vibe I might as well go all the way~
And because I like you guys so much I'm going to share another maxi dress! (Two for one, just for you)
For this one I used this great vintage pattern from 1979.
The pattern is a sort of basket weave look (yes, more polyester).
How about you? Do you go for the maxi dress? I think they're great for everyone, every size, every shape. There are so many variations. What's your summer go to outfit? Leave a comment~
