So I wore my blue muu muu yesterday, and it’s seriously amazing to wear.
Flattering? Probably not, though the color of this particular one is perfection.
Low maintenance? HAHAHA NOPE (I’ll be ironing that bitch every time it comes out of the washer. 😦 )
Comfortable? If feeling like you’re wearing nothing at all, whilst still being appropriately covered is comfortable, then WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!! 😉
So, I guess while I say that I’m sold on it, I do wish it were in a lower maintenance fabric that still had the same drape and breathe-ability as the challis. Anyone got some suggestions of this miracle for me?
I’m nearing the end of the May deadline, and I’m frantically working on another Lekala frankenpattern. Fingers crossed that it fits when I’m done–it seems like it is going to be a smidge tighter than expected, so some extra hacking may be in order. After that, I think I’m going to make some TNT t-shirts to help fill out my closet, because I can’t keep wearing this 😛 :
Good news! Pleased to hear wearing the muumuu was a success. I love wearing tops like this in the summer, so I might be trying this pattern, and Lekala. Thanks for the entertaining review. 😎

For a low maintenance fabric, maybe a cotton gauze or crepe would work?
Someone on stitcher’s guild suggested batik (which seems kind of “gauze-y”). Would it have similar drape though?
I don’t know. I think batik is more of a dyeing method than a textile weave. The batik I’ve seen is pretty closely woven, like quilting cotton and doesn’t drape well.
