I was walking past DownEast awhile ago and I saw a mannequin wearing a dress I thought was cute. So I took a picture of the dress through the window because I wanted to try and copy the dress sometime.
I finished a maxi dress this weekend. I used a pattern that came with a class I bought on craftsy.com about sewing with knits. I lengthened the pattern since it was for an above the knee dress. I also took out a ton of taper because it was too full for what I wanted.
And the bodice needed a lot of work. It fit way, way too big on me. I think that even on someone a lot more chesty than me there would be excess fabric in this pattern.
So here it is.
