The last few months I have seen MANY versions of the TRIBAL trend the last several months, but I still like it. This style is on the verge of being played out so I figured I'd better hurry and make my own version. Not that I'll stop wearing it once the tribal trend fizzles out. For me, style is timeless and if I love something I'm going to wear it at long as I like or get bored of something.
So far I've made my own takes on the tribal trend: leggings, a mini dress, some tribal earrings coming up this week on the blog, and this cowl necked maxidress from some Girl Charlee fabric. I've had this fabric for a few months and really like it. I love the feel of this fabric because it's SO SOFT and buttery.
I used McCall's 6489, a pattern I bought on sale about a year ago. Apparently, it's discontinued. Too bad. It's a great basic knit pattern.
I extended the skirt to make it a maxi.
It looks sort of Grecian!
Gorgeous dress! I love the tribal print, and I love that it's a maxi dress. I'm pinning this!ReplyDelete

Love your dress, and you in it! After looking at this, I am definitely digging the tribal trend -- there's got to be something tribal in my huge fabric stash.ReplyDelete
Oh I love this dress! It turned out so pretty!ReplyDelete
OMG, it looks gorgeous on you!ReplyDelete
love the back of the dress! The fit is perfect. You look gorgeous!ReplyDelete
You look spectacular. I love the fabric and that dress pattern suits a maxi dress lengthReplyDelete
Gosh this is gorgeous, I love that print. I've been wanting to try this pattern for ages, and always assumed I'd make a short one like the pattern cover but now seeing this maxi I'd be tempted to go long. Lovely!ReplyDelete
Thank you Amy!ReplyDelete
