Maxi dresses and skirts have become staple items in every woman’s closet in the last several years. I’ve heard it said that maxi dresses and skirts are comparable to yoga pants minus the crotch seam. Brilliant! The comfort of these beautiful staples is an added bonus to looking dressed up when you are so very comfy. It totally feels like cheating and I love it!
I’ve found these simple tutorials to share with you. I’d love to hear about your own creations!
This lovely dress is called a ‘Boho Maxi’ by the creator. You will be shocked when you see how simply she created this dress from a piece of WHITE cotton knit fabric.
This maxi dress is made with a very simple drawstring top.
I love the simple tank top she used on this dress. The flowers were part of the original tank top. The shirt portion was added quickly and easily.
Why should the comfort and fashion of the maxi dress be for adults only? This sweet girl looks adorable in her maxi dress made from a t-shirt that was headed for a yard sale.

Maxi skirts and dresses are perfect for growing baby bumps too. The material stretches with the bump.
This maxi skirt has something that most lack. POCKETS! I never seem to have a place to put my phone when I wear a maxi. This is awesome!
The ruffles on the bottom of this skirt grabbed my heart. Can you believe it was made from a discarded knit bed sheet?
The tutorial for this skirt looks super simple. I’m in love with the chevron fabric too.
I like the contrast of the knit tank on the top and the cotton weave on the bottom of this dress.
A Small Snippet
This blogger was going for a vintage approach with her dropped waist version.
I don’t know if it’s the yellow color or that adorable ruffle at the bottom of the dress that makes my heart happier. Basically, I love everything about this outfit.
