I've made a couple of dresses using the free pattern for a wrap dress at So Sew Easy. The first I made as a maxi version. I've never owned a maxi dress but have recently thought it would be nice for around the house. The fabric was an ITY jersey from the special table at Spotlight and was just $12 for 2m at 148cm wide. I needed all the fabric for this dress.
The second one I made was from the wrap dress version, but I still lengthened it so it is below the knee. I loved this fabric from Morelands Fabrics so paid a bit more than I usually pay. This was $32 for 1.8m at 150cm wide. This fabric was slightly heavier and I found that the neck was gaping too much, not sure if the extra weight is pulling it down. To get around the gaping I had to top stitch across the front bodice where the pieces overlap.
