Of course, it’s always best to buy a maxi dress that fits you well, but sometimes you might just see one in a store that you love and really want to buy, but it’s a tad too long.

Here, I’m going to show you a super cool and easy hack for how you can shorten a maxi dress with no sewing involved. Let’s get started!

Let the dress down, and you will see the difference! Tying some of the fabric underneath shortens the length of the dress and also adds shape.

I really like how it cinches the dress at the side to create an asymmetrical look, but you could also try tying the fabric in the center if you want the dress to be symmetrical.

The tied fabric adds a point of interest to the plain maxi dress, and I am just so in love with this simple hack. Give it a go for yourself!
