A maxi dress in a hurry!!


If you're in need of a maxi dress for a summer event and haven't got much time to make one, this really simple design can be sewn together in an afternoon!


The main part of the bodice is a bandeau style top, which is gathered in at the front with the help of a band, the halter band then fits through the gathering band which is tied round the neck to help keep the dress up.


There is a zip fasten in the back, but an alterative would be to add extra width at the back and insert elastic instead.


And of course a full length skirt attached to the bodice, but you can always cut it shorter for a fun summery dress!


This pattern will require some knowledge of sewing and an understanding of what pattern symbols mean (if you not sure please search on line for pattern symbols or refer to a good sewing book).
