I betcha can't make just one dress( mission maxi)



This dress, wow! Let's just give Jamie Christina, who created this pattern a standing ovation! I am in all kinds of love with this dress pattern. It's chic, sophisticated, sexy, but not clingy, yet still clings the right spots!  Did I get all the adjectives for this dress pattern lol?



Check those stripes on the side, they match! *WINNING*

I named the title post, simply because once you make one. I guarantee, another will be sure to follow lol! I literally raided my stash last night looking for every possible knit to make into this dress. Just so we are clear, I plan to make so many of these dresses, until someone will probably assume that I don't have other clothes lol..This dress is just too comfortable and it's cute! Just can't beat that for the heat, right? It's really not much that be can said about this dress that already hasn't been said. I know for me this will be my summer staple, yes, please!

Saw Kim K. in similar version I'm sure hers cost a grip, but I'll take mine for 20 bucks please and thank you lol!




Kim K. in her stripe maxi! Say
what you will about the girl, but she
is fly!
My next plan of attack, get some more of these dresses done. I also will like to do one with the godet next as well.. I have not been this excited for a pattern in a minute. Just call me the lady on mission! Corny, I know right lol, but so true! Well lovely ladies that's my time, you all have a wonderful and safe weekend and keep those sewing machines humming lol! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. hahahahahhaa. I had the same reaction when I made the first one. I still have to make more. When I made it, I went mad, going through my stash, converting every single knit in my stash into a mission maxi. quite mad lol. I am going to do a stripe one next. i love your print. mine is gold and black though.

  2. You look fantastic in this dress! No surprise that you are planning more. I have seen so many great versions of this dress on the internet, that it is very tempting. But, I have such an extreme pear shape that I worry this dress will just make that fact all too obvious! Can't wait to see your next version. You now have an awesome tnt summer dress pattern.

  3. You look great! You know I feel your excitement for the racer back tank style. I plan on making at least one this weekend myself. I was just thinking I really do have to force myself to move on to other patterns. Great matching of the stripes!
