Maxi Dress Tutorial - Love This One!

Today is my first day of --
     1.  No school.  I graduate in 10 days!
     2.  No traveling.  I spent the previous 10 days with my two sets kids, who are 3 hours and 10 hours away.  Now I'm back home with the youngest and my Hunk O Man.
     3.  No deadlines!
     4.  No phone calls to make!
     5.  No worries!

So I'm catching up on all my YouTube subscriptions.  I found this adorable maxi-dress and thought I'd share it.  Let me know if you try it.  I think I might.  I also have another tutorial coming for a sheet --

Trudy Does It Again

I love Trudy from HotPatterns.  They have some great stuff, a nice selection of patterns and often a free one you can download from Fabric.com.

Here's her latest tutorial, and I think it's invaluable.  She has some refinements on lengthening a t-shirt pattern into a dress, and also some tips on going from sleeves to sleeveless.

Also, check out the very cool dress she's wearing.  I told her I think it would also look fabulous chopped up even more, maybe twice more down the front.  And you know, Trudy is all about fabulous.

Enjoy -- hope you learn as much as I did!
