+ Long tight knit maxi dress tutorial

Our trip to the grocery store is only 5 blocks away from out house which makes a nice little adventurous city walk for the us. Also a great photo-op! I was trying to get this done before v-day, because this is a “romantic dress” because of its tight revealing nature. But of course it can be made any day of the week and I looooove it.

Supplies:
2 yards of stretchy knit fabric
Instructions:
1. Cut a big rectangle as wide as your hip’s length and as long as your natural waist to the floor plus 2 inches. I always leave a little extra in case of mistakes.
2. Fold in once, iron, then hem the bottom and inch.
3. Fold in twice, iron, hem a 1/2 to 3/4 inch up to the length you want your slit. Mine was 18 inch (just to me knee).
4. Sew the seam up ending the stitch at the beginning of the slit’s hem.
5. Secure the slit from getting any bigger by sewing a topstitch at the top.
6. Cut out the top by using a tight knit shirt as your guide, the top needs to be shorter, ending an inch below your natural waist.
7. Sew up the sides and the shoulders.
8. Hem the sleeve 3/4 inch and the neckline 1/2 inch.
9. Join the top with the bottom by slipping the skirt into the neckline of the top, and pinning the waist opening right sides together.
10. Sew together.

  2. I wouldn’t say it’s so much revealing as just flattering. Actually kind of modest.

  3. love your maxi skirt — it looks so soft and comfy! xo

  12. Great dress. Love the simplicity and how easy it is to personalise by changing the neckline/hem. Also think it would look cracking in a stripped jersey.

  25. It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people about this topic, however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  26. The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read through, however I genuinely thought you would probably have something interesting to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
