Here it is! The new sewing pattern I've been waiting, blogging, talking, and excited about.
After seeing all of the beautiful maxi dresses out this season, I just had to make a maxi sewing pattern.
View B (halter top maxi)
View A (basic tank top maxi)
And my favorite - View C (godet back maxi)
In addition to the 3 different views, the Mission Maxi can also be made into two different style of tank tops (basic and halter).
This pattern is very quick and easy to make. My pattern testers, Melanie (A Sewing Journal) and Natalie (Hungry Hippie), both thought the pattern was beginner friendly for those exploring the use of knit fabrics. Even more, within the pattern I do offer tips on how to sew knit fabrics on a home sewing machine. If you are an intermediate to advance sewer, this pattern is the perfect canvas for you to have fun with.
Something new to my overall pattern designs is that the booklet is printed in color.
Me like-y the colors!
While the dress is fashionable, I can't say enough about its comfort! The comfort of the design has propelled my maxi dresses to the top of my wardrobe. Some might say it is a new uniform of mine. I wear them to pick up my kids from school. I wear them to take my kids to practice. And I wear them when I go out to dinner with my husband. I even wore one on a trip to the zoo for my son's birthday. Though the zoo day was chilly, I just threw on some tights, my laced up boots, and a sleeved T and I was good to go! In a way, it's like wearing sweats with out looking like you've given up. It's that comfortable!
