This bohemian maxi dress is such an easy sewing project for summer. We professionally shirr the fabric to enshirr (see what we did there ; -)) it looks like a designer quality garment! Make the whole look in an afternoon or less. We are also shipping all of our easy sewing kits with extra fabric from which you can make any accessories that you would like (like the headwrap pictured here) or, the finishings to help you transform this maxi into a mini with our bubble hem hack (also pictured!).
