XYT Maxi Dress Hack
I stole the idea from ClosetCaseFiles) I wanted a dress that looked effortless and felt like pyjamas. Mission accomplished. For once, I wasn't lazy and I even added bra cups per Heather's instructions. I stole them from an old H&M sportsbra since those foam cups are non-existent in Belgium (Since I've found some in the Netherlands on a market, but that's a long ride for some foam cups) I'm overexcited about the fact that on a coming hot day (probably in the year 2015) I can wear a dress without a bra. I think that haven't happened in 12 years. I wasn't sure if I could pull off this type of bra, but I've decided to go for it (You never know untill you try and I feel like it's working. No fast running allowed though!) But, here are some picturesssss Before you check them out: I'm not pregnant, the belly is a food baby from Lieke's birthday bash that afternoon! She makes the best pancakes and I ate all of them :-) Technical details
- Fabric is a cotton jersey from Pauli. Leuven's best Fabric shop.
- I used the T-strap variation of the XYT hack and doubled the layers since I needed the support.
- Sizes: S at bust, XS at waist, M at hips. Extended into an A-line maxi skirt.
- I lowered the neckline by 2 centimeters, since this isn't a work-out top. I used powermesh for the bra.
