DIY Maxi Dress

Updated on November 26, 2014

Why DIY?

Anyone can walk into a store and buy a dress. People do it all the time. Heck, even though I sew I still do, but sometimes it is nice to have an original item hanging in your closet that you created yourself. Check out the tutorials below and see which Maxi Dress you might want to try making for yourself.

Paper Bag Waist Maxi Dress: If you're still new to the world of sewing this may be just the dress for you. Start with an existing tank, add some pretty fabric, tie on a sash and you have a super cute maxi that you created all by yourself.

One Seam Maxi: This one is also perfect for beginners. It only has one seam. You got that right, the fabric comes pre shirred, so you have to do is sew one seam to create a tube. Easy peasy!

Kimono Maxi Dress: I know some ladies out there might like something a little more modest that doesn't show as much skin, for them this is perfect.

Boho Maxi Dress: This is very similar to the one above, but still cute enough to check out!
