The Mission Maxi

The new sewing pattern I've been waiting, blogging, talking, and excited about. The Mission Maxi sewing pattern After seeing all of the beautiful maxi dresses out this season, I just had to make a maxi sewing pattern. View B (halter top maxi) View A (basic tank top maxi) And my favorite - View C (godet back maxi) In addition to the 3 different views, the Mission Maxi can also be made into two different style of tank tops (basic and halter).

While the dress is fashionable, I can't say enough about its comfort!

Anywho, the Mission Maxi is now available in my shop and the great shops that carry my patterns. Enjoy!
