I had big plans to use this rayon challis print for myself but had a change of heart when this little miss struggled to find a warm weather dress that still fit- darn growing kids! I absolutely love the Starlight City Dress from Lil Luxe Collection (you can see our other version here) and knew it’d be stunning maxi-fied.
That back is just so fun and it’s such a quick, easy sew too since there are no closures!
I modified it just a bit using the width of the fabric for the skirt and adding length to make it touch the floor. She is a 7/8 width with a 12 height but I didn’t alter the bodice piece so it hits a little higher on her chest.
We both love those pockets! Seriously, there’s nothing more comfy than a soft maxi dress with pockets.
I did have to be a bit creative with the pattern placement with this print. You don’t want to end up with medallions is the wrong place on the chest, if you catch my drift. It’s not such a big deal on my little miss but when I make my own top I think I’ll try to do something similar to this bodice. Aren’t those colors just so pretty?!!
