I love maxi dresses but I feel like mini dresses are more in this summer.
I considered chopping off some of my maxi length dresses to convert them into mini dresses but decided to pin up the hem first to see how it’ll look.
This led me to realise that I don’t even need to chop off my maxi dresses. Pinning them short worked perfectly well and allows me to revert back to maxi length if I wish.
You’ll need quite a few safety pins and make sure they are heavy duty so that they don’t bend or come undone too easily.
I used 12 safety pins because the skirt of this maxi dress is very flared and has a lot of material.
I pinned to the loose edge of the elastic waistband so that the pins don’t show through on the front.
All these dresses are from my favourite Australian designer for flowy summer dresses, Jaase. The fabric is made of a light rayon and flows beautifully when the wind catches.
Yes, the colours are as vibrant in real life as they look in the photos. I don’t normally wear white sneakers with dresses but when I do, I usually pair with a mini dress.
This is the first maxi dress I ever bought. I was so mesmerised by the print that I just had to.
When an outfit is very colourful, I like to pair with nude plain sandals for a barefoot kind of look, which creates an illusion of longer legs.
When you get bored of your mini dresses, you can always revert them back to maxi length.
I hope you’ve been inspired to try shortening your maxi dresses for this summer. It’s fun and exciting because you can now have all these new dresses without spending a dime.
