New York, New Yo...
mila has magical powers.
completely against my will, i chose this pattern for the next oona does it! over at the sew weekly. who forced me to do this? NO ONE. my left brain deemed it destined for this particular challenge, and my right brain had no say in the matter. the sticking point: i never thought this pattern was my style.
well, i was completely shocked at how much i love the mila. i’ll be making six or seven more. i did away with the side zip, and added an exposed zip to the front panel. i thought this worked better with the lace.
