V1027 | Tye-Dye-Ombre' Twirl

This dress is an oldie but goodie!
I made the longer version for my B-Day a few years ago.

I was influenced by Mimi, to make this shorter version. Her style is amazing!
She rocked it and I loved it, so of course I had to copy!


I purchased this gorgeous tye-dye knit fabric from Michael Levine after seeing
the fabric she used for her dress. It's a crinkly feeling knit, but there's not a whole lotta 
stretch to it and it feels like it has a little spandex in it, idk.


 I tried a different earthy colorway, that I adore. I knew I should've purchased some of the other colorways
 before they sold out! They would make great Maxi's, and you know I lurve a Maxi, lol!

Fortunately, I didn't have to make any adjustments because I made them
previously when I made this dress before. The same alterations were used, a fba, and 2"' 
added to the bodice length. Oh, and of course, shortened!

Oh yeah, and it still has some twirl to it!!

Pockets and twirl-ability, my two favorites! (~_~)


Til my next post, C-ya!!
