I used this pattern to make dresses for my Mother and two sisters that live in upstate New York. I usually visit them this time of year, but this time couldn't make it. I won't be there but my dresses will.
decided that making three maxi's would be a great way to help me do a
little stash busting - 3 dresses = six yards used. The two lively
prints on the left are jersey knits purchased at Metro Textiles on one
of my New York trips, and the ITY knit for the dress on the left was
from Fabric.Com several years ago. I still have enough of the ITY
knit for another dress.
The Mission Maxi is a super
easy dress to pull together, consisting of just two main pattern pieces
and 3 bands to finish the neckline and armholes. All three dress were
machine hemmed using my longest zig-zag stitch to create lettuce hems. I
know my folks already have plenty of cute sandals to pair with these
