Mission Maxi Modified
I do love me a frock, especially in summer time. I’ve been struggling to find a maxi pattern that suits me because most designs that I’m drawn to seem to suit the tall and small-busted, of which I am definitely neither. A few months back, I purchased Jamie Christina’s Mission Maxi and it’s a great design in addition to being super (super) quick and easy to make. I originally made up View A in a remnant from the stash…
… and then – inspired by something I saw in retail-world – decided to make it again with modifications. I left the top part as is because both the fit and the racer back are perfect. Then, from the underarm, I angled the pattern out and created a curved hem as seen below. I also shortened the length by a good 30cm at the hem’s highest point.
I made two versions, the first (trial) in Dark Cat…
…and the second in In the Works (both sold out).
And in this final post for 2011, Colette and I would like to wish you all a fabulously happy 2012. Thanks for reading us!
