I have finally jumped on the maxi dress trend, 2+ years after it began. They looked like they'd be hot, especially here in Texas. Also I like my legs and maxi dresses completely hide them. But this pattern was so incredibly adorable that I just had to try it.
While picking up this pattern and a few others, I happened upon the perfect striped knit to make the star version. After I got it home and washed however, I noticed that is was a very grabby fabric and clung to itself horribly. That worried me quite a bit, but luckily it doesn't cling to itself while it's on me.
All in all it's a great little dress that is super easy to whip up. I plan to make the colorblocked version at some point, too.
