Floral Maxi Shirtdress
by recentlyrisa Follow

Pattern: Simplicity 8084

Fabric: I used a poly something that I picked up at Hancock's. So sad they're going out of business as they were one of my favorite local stores. I'm a bit obsessed with florals.

Fit: I added 3" to the bottom of the skirt. I'm tall and wanted to make sure this was a long enough maxi. I moved the casing down an inch. I could have used an adjustment to the back/shoulder because it's a bit tight for me.

    What a gorgeous dress!  I love that it isn't boho.  I like boho but there is alot of it around and it was so nice to see a different "take" on the maxi dress.  I am also very tall, just learning how to sew, and many thing are too tight on my shoulders but then too big in the hip area.  When I read your notes I was hoping I found my double and I might ask you about some other alterations that you made to your other projects.  I'm 5' 11" and have been playing around with adding inches here and there for the past year.  Anyway...love your dress and other projects!
