Maxi Dress

It's So Easy Simplicity 2638.

Fabric Used: Some poly blend I think. Bought at Jo-Ann's 60% of sale.

How Long Did it Take: I worked on this last Saturday, while my husband and his friend when putting new windows in our house.

How Long Did It Take: Sewed it up in about six hours last weekend. I already had the pattern cut out so about seven hours altogether from start to finish.

Complexity Of Pattern: This was an easy pattern nothing to complex other than a little confusion on how to seam the bodice lining and side seam together but I worked it out.

Overall Review: I love the shape of this dress it's very flattering. The bodice is lined which I like. I could have done with it being a little bit bigger in the bust area. I have not hemmed it yet waiting to see if I like the maxi look on me if not I'll shorten it. The only change I made to the pattern was to put in an invisible zipper.
