Another Mission Maxi!

8:45 PM


I'm officially in love with this pattern! And that hardly ever happens. I very seldom repeat one. So I can say this is OFFICIALLY my TNT maxi dress/tank dress. I wore this dress (and the other one) and I've received so many compliments!

This time I made the version with the the godet. I made it in Stretch Rayon Blend Jersey Knit Stripes Heather/Light Blue/Lavender and it's 85% Rayon/18% Polyester/ 2% Lycra. I love this fabric because it's very lightweight with and amazing drape and it's incredibly flowy!

For the binding, I just used the wrong side of the fabric which is a solid heather grey. I would have loved to have gotten a better stripe match where the godet is sewn but I didn't have enough fabric. But I'm still pleased with it!


I make no promises on whether or not you'll see another!
