The "Maxing n' Relaxing" Dress

    Newer Older

    The Facts
    Fabric | Stretch Jersey ITY Knit :: $5.98 for two yards
    Patterns | Lydia from BurdaStyle (again) modified into a maxi tank dress.
    Year | Current.
    Notions | Thread.
    Time to complete | ​Less than an hour. Those were some long seams to finish with that triple row stretch stitch, but everything else (even cutting) was dead simple as ITY knits generally lie extremely flat and behave well during sewing. There was some fiddling with the neck and armhole facings, but even that didn't take overly long.
    First worn | Sweating buckets on the WRONG day to run errands! But, it was a great choice as it doesn't not show sweat and it felt pretty cool despite being made of polyester.
    Wear again? | Yes, definitely. I love a nice maxi dress. Both grannies, my husband and sister were all fans of it, as well.
    Total price | $5.98, the scraps left over might make a nice headband, but the bulk of that two yards were used on the dress.
