Army Green Off-the-Shoudler Maxi Dress Simplicity 8045

This Off-the-Shoudler Maxi Dress is a modified version of Simplicity 8045. I made it  without the top band. This dress was made for a Fashion Show that I participated in, in Los Angeles, CA, during the Mimi G Conference. It was a great experience but I was more nervous than I have ever been in my whole life.

I cut this in a size 10 and the fit was perfect, the only alterations needed were the length, I am a little bit on the shorter side, so most maxi dresses and or skirts require me to alter the length. The fabric used is a Army Green Knit from Michael Levine’s Fabric store.

This is one that I will make again for the Fall/Winter, if we ever get those seasons, right now it is 110 degrees on average for the next few days.
