FREE MAXI DRESS PATTERN
This dress pattern is so simple; it does not require a pattern.  It is ideal for beginners who want to practice their skills and have fun! :)Materials:Mid weight knit jersey
1 1/2 inch elastic (enough for your upper chest circumference
Two safety pins
Matching threadTake your measurements:

Measure your hips.  Add two inches for ease and 1 ½ inch for seam allowance.

Get the ideal length for your height (from your upper chest to your feet) + 3  inches for the hemline and the elastic at the top.

Cut two panels based on those measurements.
Cut a waist strap: Three inches wide and it must, at least, double your waist measurement.

For example:

®    My hips circumference is 38 inches + ease (2 ½  inches) + seam allowance (1 ½ inch).  Then divide that number by 2 = 21 inches wide.

®    My measurement from the upper chest to my feet is 40.8 inches so I added 3 inches to it = 44 inches length.
