DIY Maxi Dress + Pattern Review McCall’s 6559

Hello All!

I am absolutely in love with McCall’s 6559! This pattern was a breeze to sew because I only had to cut two pieces on the fold. It only took me about 30 minutes to complete the entire project. I purchased this beautiful spandex fabric from Fine Fabrics in Norcross GA. I love a long maxi dress because you can wear them in spring, summer, and fall! I have been stepping out of my comfort zone lately buying more colorful fabrics. Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am a plain Jane and I prefer black, grey, tan, and blue! I will definitely be sewing a ton of these to wear in the summer months. Check out the pattern review below. See you later!

    looks like another simple sewing DIY! This would be great since they literally do not make maxis to fit me!
