Long sleeved maxi dress

Here in Maryland, it’s starting to get cold! You know, I haven’t made too many things for myself this spring/summer. I have sewed; however, it’s mainly been alterations which is the one thing I hate the most about sewing, Of course, it means that’s the main thing that I’ve accomplished.

True to my word, I have not purchased any clothing since I made the vow that moving forward, I would not be buying any ready made clothing. I much prefer making my own, even though (at times) it can require a lot of work with the designing and sewing process. However, I’m assured a customized article of clothing and they fit perfectly.


For myself cold weather and maxi dresses just go together and so I’m looking at the above pattern as a reference. I’ll tweak it a bit and create my own sloper.

I still need to use the above fabric. I’m torn between creating and designing a maxi dress, maxi skirt or palazzo pants. This evening, I’m hoping oping that I actually get to sew for myself.
