In a perfect world I can wear a maxi dress or skirt at least once a week. But living in an area that unfortunately has a winter season, it’s not possible unless it’s a “cold weather” maxi. This means a wool maxi with suede, yep!
This wool is a light medium weight wool with an incredible drape found on moodfabrics.com here. It cuts and sews easily, has a touch of one-way stretch. The suede was also found at moodfabrics.com here, which is a light weight beautiful bright lime green.
The pattern used was vintage McCalls 3074 with the following alterations:
-Added a 1″ collar
-Cut a high low hem
