20 Minute Convertible Maxi Dress / Skirt DIY Tutorial The fall magazine issues are starting to roll in, but I'm still on a summer maxi dress kick. The bonus to this one is that you can fold down the top portion to wear as a skirt AND it only takes 20 minutes to make. Difficulty: Very Easy Time: 20 minutes Materials: 2 yards stretchy knit fabric Due to the length of the post and number of pictures, please see the rest of the tutorial after the jump.

SKIRTMeasurements are 28" x desired length (Measure from under your bust down to the floor and add 2")Cut 2 with the measurements determined aboveMine were 28 x 40"Note: 28" was chosen so I could use exactly half the width of my fabric and also allow enough room to take long steps. Place right sides of fabric together and sew down each side. You're finished! Questions?

THE PERFECT SUMMER SWING DRESS I'm completely obsessed with chartreuse right now. It's a different and unexpected neon color, unlike neon yellow or pink, and it's just so fresh and bright and fun for summer, like a freshly squeezed lime. I picked up this fabric from Girl Charlee a few months ago, thinking I would use part of it for my Parisian top, but I changed my mind after ordering it so this fabric suddenly had no purpose. Then, in a twist of fate, my friend posted a handmade green dress on instagram, I pinned this dress from Sincerely Jules, and my Golden Tote showed up in the mail a few days later with an amazing flared tunic that was just begging to be copied and made into a dress.

Didn’t scare you? Good. If you caught my first post on my reimagining of Claire McCardell’s future dress from 1945, you may remember that I promised a tutorial. In this tutorial, I’m going to share how to draft the pattern for the long version of this dress (I also make a short version). Of course, you could just copy all of my calculations here, but I think there’s a valuable reason to draft the dress to your measurements. Here’s what you’ll need: If you don’t happen to have your grade-school geometry supplies handy, you can download a protractor and graph paper. You’ll also eventually need large pieces of paper—such as kraft, butcher, or wrapping paper—to make the full scale version of the pattern. Step 1 Measure from the nape of your neck, down the front of your body to the length of where you want the dress to hit (including seam allowance for a hem).
