Mod Maxi

This dress was another one of those "Make It Work" projects.  

I bought the fabric when I was pregnant with Kiddo #1 and it sat on a shelf for nearly 3 years before I decided to bite the bullet and make something from it.  

This was the project I had in mind...sort of.  I didn't buy enough fabric which meant I had to add the wide navy border on the bottom. 

And there is some pooching where the skirt and shirt are joined but I'm pretty sure that has more to do with my needing to get rid of the baby belly and not my sewing skills. 

Overall the verdict is--wearable but not my favorite.

  1. You are a sexy beast!!! I love the skirt- it's totally wearable and I think it will look great with a slouchy cardigan or some fun fall layers. Loving the double skinny belts. I'm stealing that...
