"This tutorial will show you how to create an elegant Grecian maxi dress, perfect for the summer. It is made entirely from jersey fabric, and has a deep v-neckline with a pleated skirt. The bodice is lined so that there are no visible seams around the neckline and arm holes. It takes approximately 3 hours to cut and sew this dress. It is ideal for holidays, beach days, and days out. It could be used for a formal occassion if you used a viscose fabric with some sheen to it."

NotesYou can use light or medium weight jersey for the bodice, but only use a light weight jersey for the skirt.
