ANOTHER maxi dress--bright limey green
I made this dress out of the same pattern I used for my navy knit maxi dress, which I've worn several times already and have even worn to work on a casual Friday (and it so happened that literally two other people also wore navy empire waist maxi dresses the same day). But this one is a bright lime green knit! I've been wanting to incorporate more brights into my wardrobe for aaaaaaages, but it's hard to find the right colors at the fabric stores. Organic Cotton Plus sent me this lime green interlock knit yardage so I could try out their stuff--so this one's organic, too! It's super nice, much softer than I remember basic interlock knits being from when I was a kid and my mom made my doll clothes out of them. ;)
(Note: see my Sewing Circle post on how to sew on knits--and since then I've learned how helpful a walking foot is, too; it takes the strain/pull off the fabric as you sew!)
So here it is--Simplicity 1801 again (although I cut out a size smaller than last time, since it ended up loose), made of organic cotton neon/lime green interlock knit!
Maxi dresses and skirts are so easy to wear! Now I've just got to decide on which other patterns to use, since I've already made this one twice. ;)
What's your favorite bodice style for maxi dresses?? Any recommendations?
