Maxi it is! McCalls 6700

I'm on the Maxi dress bandwagon.  I have always loved them, but I had convinced myself that my 5'1" frame was a little short and I looked dumpy in a Maxi.  I actually love the way this one fits and even more than that I love the color and how easy it was to construct.  I will be making this again, or another Maxi, as I am now officially a Maxinista!

  2. Love the color! There are so many styles of maxi dresses, it's just a matter of finding what's a good fit for you. I know higher or empire waistlines work for me--I may have to try this one--it's stunning, yet simple.

    1. Thanks so much Robin, you are right. I had to get away from making what I say other woman making on their blogs. I have to wear what's flattering on me.

  6. Very nice! How do you like the dip in the back? Does it provide adequate bra coverage?

    1. L, actually I didn't like it at first, but when I put it on there's more than enough coverage for me. I really like how it turned out.
