  1. I love this! I've been wanting to make a maxi skirt. Could you give advice on where to get the right fabric and how to know what the right fabric is? I would love to sew along once I knew where to shop and what fabric to get.

  2. What a cool idea! I can't wait to see what you come up with. The dress in this post is beautiful. :)

  3. Oh, by the way, the shirring wasn't scary at all! You just have to put elastic thread in the bobbin. Totally easy!

  4. Oh so fun! I looove maxi dresses. If I can make it to the fabric store, I'll definitely participate! Although, I am thinking about remaking a maxi dress I have and turning it into a maxi skirt. Would that count?
