Just finished this tie dye maxi and am kinda in love with it. I have been so excited to show you all. So here is the finished outfit and below that you will find pics of my step by step tie dying.
Pattern : Mission Maxi by Jamie Christina
Materials Used : White knit fabric from JoAnns (sorry I am not sure what it is made of but probably some cotton/rayon/spandex blend), some Navy Blue fabric Dye, and a lot of rubber bands.
Changes : After making another version of this pattern in past, I decided that I wanted a bit more room around the bottom of the maxi. Starting at the hips I graded out to about 2 inches on the bottom on either side of the dress (both front and back). I really like the extra amount of fabric. It just flows a little more and allows for easier walking.
What I would change next time : I really don’t know if I need more than 2 maxi dresses, but if I do I think I will draft some sleeves and maybe a v neckline for one.
Conclusion : Love how this turned out. Not only is this a great fashion forward pattern, but the tie dye was much easier and more fun that I anticipated.
Now for some pics/steps for making the tie dye.
