jersey-maxi-dresses-fall-dresses-2010-1.jpg is a Pattern Store with a mission and goal to sell patterns with a look and style that is modern and trendy yet at the same time, Vintage.  The goal is the compare the patterns we collect from the past and compare them to the up and coming trends of today.  And lets not forget the classics that will outlast us and all the tests of time!

Not all trends of the season are likable,  I have to to be very picky of all the latest trends and not just jump on the band wagon just because it looks vintage inspired! There is sometimes a reason why these styles lived quickly and dies hard the first time around.  This fall, the long maxi skirt and dress are the newest and Consider it your comfy-cool new uniform for fall. In fact, the season's long and lean jersey maxi dress packs everything we love into one simple piece. Inspired by old-school Norma Kamali and DKNY back in the '90s, fall's new jersey maxi dress is first and foremost comfortable, allowing stretch and snugness right where we need it.  These are a little different than the maxi dresses with the built in bras that we were donning a couple summers back.  Since this fall we have all the hot trends of that are all vintage inspired, think of all the pairing that you will be able to do with the new improved fall maxi! This fall's trendy maxi dress gives the illusion of being super tall and svelte (who doesn't love that?). And, perhaps most importantly, it can be switched up in a snap to go from easy weekend look to major after-dark attitude. Here, we've rounded up the styles we love, plus lots of ways to wear them. But really, with such a universally sleek piece like this, the styling options are pretty limitless.mitless.
