Quick Post: Another Maxi Dress

I have been meaning to post this for months now. I made a maxi dress (and another skirt!) to take on vacation with me in October, and I failed to take pics of it before or after the trip. However, I did take one just before going out one day. I promise that I’ll take “regular” photos of the dress (and other clothing shenanigans) one of these days. 🙂

The pattern almost matches the floor! Ha!

Saturday’s Project – The Mission Maxi Dress

So after seeing this dress on several blogs and absolutely loving it, I finally decided to purchase this pattern and give it a try!

This is the Mission Maxi dress by Jamie Christina, and it’s a great pattern, let me tell you! It took a little over two hours to cut and sew this dress, and because it wasn’t so time consuming, I’ll be making another one of these by the end of the week! Talk about comfortable…*snuggles dress*

Pattern: Jamie Christina Mission Maxi – View A

Fabric used: Denim jegging (April Johnston Project Runway Fabrics – hey, it has great stretch and it was on super sale at Jo-Ann. I will be back for more. lol!)

Size: I cut a size 4. Might try a 6 next time. Or not. 😉

Modifications: None

Where to buy this pattern:  http://www.jamiechristina.com

And because I love playing with pics over at PicMonkey:

I think I’ll try this dress in black next time!

Please forgive the photos, as this place does not have a lot of natural light, and I’m not going outside to take pics because I don’t want to scare the neighbors. Ha! I also came to the realization this morning that I’ve had this point and shoot camera for 6 years, and it’s definitely time for me to invest in a new one. It doesn’t capture detail nearly as well as I would like, so yeah…it’s time. I’ve just been procrastinating. 😉 Hopefully before the end of the year. Cross your fingers. 🙂

New dress…project semi-fail?

It was a partial project fail, but in that “I can cover it up so no one notices” kind of way. 😉

Modified McCall’s 6319. View C. No lining. I added 1″ to the bodice, but will add 3″ next time as recommended by a few other people who have made this dress. *sighs* I know where I messed up with this dress, and will be doing this one again – the right way. In three different colors. Because I love this dress.

*looks around*

I am so glad that I bought more than one yard of this fabric. 🙂
