Oh Clover, you have been my most recurring pdf pattern. I have made Clover Child, Clover Tween, Clover Dress add-on Child, Clover Dress add-on Tween and now Clover Dress Misses pattern. I have also hacked Clover into a top and now I want to share with you how you use the original sewing pattern and turn the Clover Dress into a maxi length dress. Below I will have measurements for all size ranges Child, Tween and Misses.

But before we get down to business, here are some maxi dress photo inspirations…

 

 

 

 

Clover as a maxi is just so dreamy!!!

Fabric Details:

Misses Dress: Spoonflower

Tween Dress: Atelier Brunette

 How to Assemble the Maxi Skirt:

-Cut your skirt according to the charts below.

-Sew the front and back skirt side seams together with a 1/2" seam allowance just as you did with the Hi Lo skirt. 

-Follow the tutorial instructions just as you were sewing the Hi Lo skirt. Hem, with a 1/4", 1/4" seam allowance. So simple, right?!!

In winter I just love nights in. It’s funny how the cold, dark weather makes us want to hibernate. HAHA! We drink cocoa and do either a family movie night or family game night with board games. We try to prioritize/schedule some home time in the rush of visiting families and traveling because it’s important to us.

I can’t think of anything more enjoyable than the Christmas holiday. The hustle and bustle of shopping with a hot cup of coffee, pumpkin spice of course. The crispness in the air, I live in Louisiana this is always welcomed. The time spent with family. Most importantly the remembrance of what this special holiday is meant for, which is celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This is what comes to mind when I think of winter.

My absolute favorite activity I look forward to when it becomes wintertime, is building a fire in the fireplace and playing games on the floor in front of it! Coming in from playing in the snow or just finishing a meal, a fire in the fireplace always feels like home.
