The Mai Tai dress offers so many possibilities: In a luscious silk, it's a high-fashion kimono. In a crisp solid fabric, it's corporate chic. In a bold print, it's modern and fun. Whichever fabric you choose, the Mai Tai dress is amazingly comfortable and so flattering.

The Mai Tai pattern is a contemporary wrap dress with waist ties which are stitched into the darts. It has a faced V-neck, a mitred hem and comfy kimono sleeves.

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate. You should have a working knowledge of your sewing machine, and a basic sewing vocabulary. This dress comes together quickly and has detailed instructions guiding you along. There are some tight curves and a sharp V-neckline, so beginners should choose stable fabrics until they are comfortable.

(2 out of 5 stars)
I’m confused already! The instructions talk about a seam in the back of the dress but the pattern piece says cut on the fold.... Which is right?
