for months i've been bookmarking long maxi dresses for fall, but haven't actually acquired any (bought or made) until this weekend. i came across a silk-like racerback maxi dress while shopping this weekend, and am in love with this dress! it's so comfortable and warm with it's long, long skirt, and makes me feel like a proper lady walking down the brooklyn streets. examining it....it would be dead simple to make. i think it just needs the right, flowy fabric. these are my new weekend plans. if all goes well.......maybe i'll be posting a pattern around here soon.
searching back through my fall bookmarks, I came across these steven alan dresses which I think are absolutely perfect. modern, yet with a a definite vintage feel to them. i love the colors, fabrics, textures and styling.
