Sew Paradise

maxi dress?

So I’ve been seeing the maxi sundress this season and wondering. Is it for me? But then I read an e-mail newsletter for fashionistas and they recommended it with lots of bangly bracelets and flat shimmery sandals. And THEN I remembered the summer I got pregnant – the summer before last – at the beachfront wedding of friends. I wore a tube-top blouson style chiffon floor length gown (my mom’s dress) over flat silver flip flops. And I felt magical, dainty, beautiful, like a goddess.

So if that’s how a beautiful drifty maxi dress would work, sign me up. Only I need to be able to nurse in it, so I’ll have to lengthen my empire tunic to maxi length to be able to do that. Or heck, I could make the Jalie crossover wrap top in a maxi length dress, oohlala!

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
