Cowl neck tribal print maxidress

The last few months I have seen  MANY versions of the TRIBAL trend the last several months, but I still like it. This style is on the verge of being played out so I figured I’d better hurry and make my own version. Not that I’ll stop wearing it once the tribal trend fizzles out. For me, style is timeless and if I love something I’m going to wear it at long as I like or get bored of something.
So far I’ve made my own takes on the tribal trend:  leggings, a mini dress, some tribal earrings coming up this week on the blog, and this cowl necked maxidress from some Girl Charlee fabric. I’ve had this fabric for a few months and really like it. I love the feel of this fabric because it’s SO SOFT and buttery.

 I used McCall’s 6489, a pattern I bought on sale about a year ago. Apparently, it’s discontinued. Too bad. It’s a great basic knit pattern.
I extended the skirt to make it a maxi.

It looks sort of Grecian!

    Ooh, I love that pattern, & your fabric! I’ve been worrying about the tribal trend…I love it so much, and its so hot right now, that I’m scared it will stop being “popular”. So I’m with you, if you like it wear it!! I’ll wear mine for a long time for sure:)

    Love your dress, and you in it! After looking at this, I am definitely digging the tribal trend — there’s got to be something tribal in my huge fabric stash.

    Gosh this is gorgeous, I love that print. I’ve been wanting to try this pattern for ages, and always assumed I’d make a short one like the pattern cover but now seeing this maxi I’d be tempted to go long. Lovely!

    Wow, beautiful! 🙂 Just love the fabric and style. Looks great in the print you chose. The self-belt adds a nice touch as well 🙂
