Scarf Print

This DIY maxi dress started out as a skirt, but I changed my mind and decided to make into a dress instead. Why might you ask? Well once I put the zipper into the skirt (on the side), it totally ruined how the skirt draped. While the fabric is very thin and silky, the zipper was very hard and stiff so the two contrasting fabric did not work well in unison. I was done with the skirt and even had the waist band sewn it, but ultimately I was not happy and decided to take it apart and make it into a maxi dress. I'm much more happy with it now and I think it drapes much nicer without a zipper in it! Yay! I also love this scarf print fabric because it's so unique and I haven't seen anything like it. Sometimes scarf prints can be quite loud and busy, but this one is more on the sophisticated and simple side. This dress also kept me very cool and was perfect for shopping in 90 degree weather yesterday!
 
Not only did I enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday, I also had the pleasure of meeting Jen from Life Unrefined! She was the winner of my Stella McCartney inspired dress giveaway. It turns out that she lives in the Bay Area too and offered to pick up the dress in person so I could save money on shipping. How kind and thoughtful of her! We met at the Stanford mall which was the perfect place for her to sneak into a fitting room to try on my dress. The dress fit her like a glove and I was so relieved because I hate doing alterations and taking things apart. LOL.

  1. Hi Ping,
    Love your maxi dress! Have you think of making maxi dress with different prints and sell them to us petite girls at reasonable prices? We have a hard time finding maxi dress that is not super long:)
