Maxis Missing from My Wardrobe

You know its summer when...there are a lot of maxis in the air, be it skirts or dresses as every woman need to have something cool to wear when its hot out.  

But could you believe I live in a tropical country and don't own a maxi dress?!? Well believe it cause I kid you not. So the quest of owning a maxi dress was on and I was eyeing the ever popular McCall's 6559, but I also had an event in mind that I wanted to wear it to. However as I don't live in the US, I would have to order the pattern online which will take some time to be delivered. 

I decided to improvise...yes improvise, and improvise I did. :)

I created my own pattern from an old racer back tee and the results were astonishing...I could not believe myself. Below are a few pics, let me know what you think...

I am really pleased with the way it turned out and the feeling was very rewarding knowing I constructed it all by myself. YAY ME!!!

So until I write again, happy reading and thanks for stopping by!
