I had so much fun making the maxi dress for my daughter, I decided to make one for me. Someone on Stitcher's Guild suggested that the CJ Pleat Front dress might make a good maxi. I had just made this pattern in a short version, sleeveless. Unlike the previous dress, I remembered to raise the armhole 1 inch. I also lengthened it 15 inches.
The fabric is from Gorgeous Fabrics. I loooove this fabric! It's a jersey knit that drapes beautifully and has some weight to it. Last I looked, Ann had more of this fabric in three different colors.
This will be a great dress to have in Houston as I visit with my daughter, son-in-law, and my precious granddaughter, Lydia. My daughter's due date is tomorrow, so we are all on pins and needles waiting for the new arrival.
