Sometimes when trying to create something awesome til turns out totally failed. Like this maxi dress I tried making. Fast forward a loooong time and I turned this failed project into a maxi skirt I love!
I tried making dress. A long maxi dress made using an old tank. It is inspired by Yellow Tutorial Sunshine Poured Out Maxi Dress @ Kojo Designs. I thought it would be simple. And it was. I created a pattern using my old tank and extended it to a dress pattern. Then I cut it out and sewed it together.
When I tried it on it looked good, except for the fact that I had used to little fabric in the butt area, so it really followed my body in the front. It was the total different of the loose dress I had imagined.

I let it sit like this in my need-to-do-something-with-this-failed-sewing-project-box for a long time. This spring I took out my sewing gear and completed a couple of sewing projects. I used my maxi skirt tutorial and created this awesome maxi skirt that I love!
Oh, here it is again! Totally in looooooove!
