Aspiring Designer: Striped Swallow Designs

Hi there! I am beyond excited to be here today for the November Aspiring Designer's Challenge! My name is Mandalynn and I'm the designer behind Striped Swallow Designs. I am so thrilled to be sharing my latest pattern with you all.

Meet the Soho Maxi...

The Soho Maxi features an eye-catching cutout back and two panels on the skirt that lend to a colorful contrast detail. The bodice detail is perfect to add a touch of lace or another contrasting fabric/texture. Craft a floor-sweeping maxi dress or knee-length party dress...
