Happy Wednesday Darlings, this week is moving fast and I am just working to keep up. I cant believe that summer is almost over but I live in Cali so the seasons changing don't really "change" all that much; I can wear shorts in mid December sometimes because it stays so warm.
Okay so I have made up this pattern 3 times now and I still can see using elements of the pattern for other things I want to make. I made the dress and wore it here and here and after making two versions I knew I could take the top of the purple one and make a maxi that I had wanted to make for a while and so I did. I wont review the pattern again because like I said I have made it and reviewed it twice (here are the reviews #1 and #2) and instead I will just show you my dress.

If you want to make yours into a maxi just follow the diagram and info at the bottom of this post.
Necklace is from Urban Outfitters (old) / Sunnies are Kate Spade

Okay this is easy to do, place your pattern piece on the fabric just like you would if you were going to cut it out (front on fold) etc. Then mark the widest part of the hip and add the length you need for a maxi (reaching the floor) and mark, then add width to pattern at the hem (8-10") and then gradually mark from the hip to the hem like in the dashed lines in the diagram.
