Strapless Maxi dress
This was one of the fabrics I bought at Metro Textiles in New York. I found this in the $1.00 box that Kashi has in the back of the store. This was easy pezzy sewing. My DD posed in the dress so I could take a picture.
large piece of jersey knit - maybe 2 yd
light silky lining fabric- 2yd
Gutterman Orange thread
All purpose Black thread
When I saw the fabric I knew that it only needed something very simple to make it sing. I use the hip measurement and I made a simple rectangle. It has only one seam (at the side). I added a lining to keep it from clinging. I used my serger to attach the elastic and sewed it down with machine stitching ( Sandra Betzina's tip). The hem was not done when I took the photo.
I plan to wear it with a short black jacket
This is my last skirt in the Carnival Of Skirts series. Enjoy.
