This is the second Boho-Maxi Dress I cut out during KCW. I used a gorgeous floaty cotton voile from the stash (originally purchased from FabricMart and intended for a blouse for myself) and cut the skirt panels a smidge wider than the pattern dictates, in order to use all the width I had. Big sister is thrilled with her dress.
It is a bit sheer so I plan to add a short lining to the skirt using the 20" of voile I have left.
It's not the most practical dress for a 5-year-old, to be sure. Too long for the playground, too bare for church (unless it's cool enough inside to wear a cardigan on top). But she loves it and wants to wear it all the time.
I don't blame her. If I could pull off a halter-style dress like this (can't, novelty bras never work out for me), I would make myself one too.
It just looks so fun and breezy to wear.
Nothing left to say about this dress - it's an adorable and quick sew. Go make one!
