Dress [handmade, fabric.com $10] Necklace [H&M $5] Belt [F21 $5] Shoes [Cotton On $15] Bag [Cotton On $5] Shades [H&M $5]
So…I made this dress. And, I LOVE it!! Not only does it include my favorite trends of spring, (coral, teal colors, color-blocking, maxi) but it was RIDICULOUSLY easy to make, and basically $10. I don’t mean that in the way like ‘easy for me because I’ve been sewing stuff my whole life’ — I mean, like 5 seams altogether, anyone can do it.
Make the Look
The trickiest part of making this dress is picking out the fabric. I go straight to fabric.com, which I recommend to anyone. The skirt portion (which you can make stand alone) is a rayon-jersey-stretch(knit) blend that runs about $4/yard depending on the color. You’ll need about 1.5 yards for the skirt. The top portion is rayon, which I bought because I loved the color, but any cotton/rayon blend will suffice and you’ll need about 1 yard.
Basically all you do next is trace your favorite maxi skirt and favorite shirt as a pattern, cut, pin, and sew.
Similar looks that are just as simple, that I am probably going to make:
A little more advanced (down the line):
I’ll keep you posted 😉
p.s. If anyone would like a legit tutorial for this color block maxi dress, post a comment and I’ll get one out later this week.
