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