I’ve been trying to get my sewing mojo back and found out that making simple and basic pieces that I need in my wardrobe was a great way to start.  I have already made two of these maxi dresses so far and will be making quite a few more in other solid colors.  What I love about maxi dresses is that they can be worn all year long and styled in so many different ways.  I decided to style this diy black maxi dress with a leopard print scarf and denim vest after coming across a photo on Pinterest and realizing that I had all of the pieces in my closet to recreate the look.  I really love Pinterest because it allows me to get the most out of my wardrobe.  By adding a lightweight scarf and this denim vest t was a great way to create a “look” from a simple maxi dress.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style - DIY Black Maxi Dress + Leopard Print Scarf

So a few years ago I made this dress in a green stretch knit. I loved that dress and had to say goodbye to it when it was messed up during a trip to the emergency room where I was admitted and had to have surgery.  Well as I stated I really loved that dress, but I have to admit that I love this version even more because I actually had enough fabric to make the pockets and you know this tall girl loves a dress with pockets!  This version is made of a cotton stretch ribbed knit fabric in this vivacious orange color.  I love wearing bold and bright colors during the summer time and my mission this summer is to make a multitude of different types of maxi dresses in a bevy of colors and so far, so good!.  I decided to pair this orange dress with these turquoise statement earrings I found at Burlington Coat Factory.  I am just as obsessed with colorful statement making earrings as I am with maxi dresses right about now.  This has to be one of the most comfortable and easiest outfits to just throw on and go, yet I still look pulled together.  Perfect for brunch, running errands or simply lounging around.  This dress has me covered and I will be making several more of these.
