Strapless Maxi Dress

SAMSUNGI am loving this maxi dress print! This was a simply dress to make. A total of 3 pieces: front, back and ruffle.  The bottom of the dress as 2 slits one on each side that goes up to the knee.  The day after I finished this and wore it out for some errands I got compliments on it.

How to get the dress?  I just used a long flowing dress I already had for the pattern bottom part and figured out where I wanted the top for finish at.  I cut 2 pieces (a front and a back piece).

I decided I wanted to add a ruffle.   To get the measurement, I measured my bust X ½ because I just wanted a little ruffle not a lot more. The length was 5″.  I put elastic at the waist and the top of the dress.

It was fairly easy to make.  I think the longest part was taping the paper together for the pattern and I also got my hem stuck in the sewing machine and had a hard time getting it out.  Luckily nothing got ruined.
