I have actually had the pleasure of sewing this dress up in the other view, which comes with long sleeves and a knee-length, and I am excited to give the maxi dress version a try for my summertime wardrobe. Designed by Kate and Rose Patterns, the Giselle Dress is designed for woven fabrics, and features a waist-cinching belt in the back, and a figure flattering panel in the front. I absolutely love mine and recommend it to you too!
Scene in Stripes Knit Maxi
How about a little peek-a-boo surprise in the back of your maxi dress? This design by Simplicity is super fun because it has a simple elegant design, with a twist of fabric under the bust, and then in the back the twist is mirrored at the top of the dress, followed by a large cut out in the middle back. The opening is high enough to hide a bra, yet it’s a fun approach to a classic design.

Out and About Dress
Want a maxi dress that’s as cute and comfy as a t-shirt? The Out and About Dress by Sew Caroline is the perfect fit! The upper part of the dress is as classic as a t-shirt, then it’s attached to a knee-length or maxi dress for maximum comfort and ease. Seriously, could there be anything more perfect for a summer concert or road trip? I think not!
