Maxi Dress
Tip: use a dress that has a cool detail you like. For this one, it’s the beaded neckline.
1
Turn the dress inside out. If it’s lined, remove the skirt lining.
2
While inside out, consider how high you’d like your crotch to be then add 2” to be safe. No cameltoe
3
Decide how wide you want the pants legs. Fold the dress in half and mark the width at the hem.
4
Connect the crotch line to the hem line.
5
Cut through all 4 layers 1/2” outside of that line for the seam allowance.
6
Unfold but remain inside out.
7
Sew inseam closed, turn right side out and you’re done!
