It's called the Always Maxi Dress because it always fits the occasion, and it always fits your body. Have you ever woken up to find that nothing fits? With my IBS, that was a reality I dealt with on a daily basis. Until I made this dress. I wanted something that I could wear anywhere, no matter what my body was doing, and thus the Always Maxi Dress was born.
This dress is made from soft, drapey Jersey which flatters any figure. In addition to massive pockets, it features a folded over top meaning there are no seams at the shoulder. This is an added benefit for people with sensory difficulties. It is cut to be wide and flowing and can be worn that way for a relaxing cup of tea around the house, or cinched with a wide belt for a Chic boho look. Gather the fluttery cap sleeves at the top of the shoulder using decorative pins or ribbon (I used hair clips), and cinch the waist with a rhinestone band or some trendy pearls for a fancy night out.
This dress comes in a variety of finish options, which impact the price. The cheapest option, which you see in these photos, features raw edges at the neck, sleeves, and hem. Since Jersey is a non fraying fabric, the edges will roll under naturally and do not need to be hemmed or finished with bias tape/trim. For a fancier finish, the edges can be trimmed, hemmed, or bias taped. All dresses are custom made to your specifications, including length and depth of v-neck.
