Mimi G's Front Slit Maxi
When I first saw this dress on the Stitched9 site I knew I HAD to have something similar. Since the dress sold out in less than 10 hours, Mimi G was gracious enough to offer a tutorial for those of us who sew so we could recreate the exact dress.
Pattern Description: Wrap front, slit front maxi with elasticized waist and fabric belt.
Pattern Sizing: Custom pattern made from tutorial
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Absolutely
Were the instructions easy to follow? Mimi is such a great teacher, and she doesn't disappoint in this tutorial. She takes you through each step explaining what she's doing and then sews with you to show you how.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is one sexy dress. I love how you get such a sexy dress but are still completely covered. I also like the twist on the regular maxi patterns of the front slit. Best of all, this dress features a fully lined bodice which makes it a dream to wear.
Fabric Used: I used and ITY I found at fabric.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations needed as you create a custom pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would completely recommend this to other sewers of all skill levels and as for sewing it again, I already have my second one cut out.
Conclusion: This is a great maxi dress, a fast sew and great for beginners and sewers of all levels. Another Home Run for Mimi G.
