mila does mountains

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.

more story, and the inspiration behind the dress, over at the sew weekly oona does it!: THEY KILLED KENNY

    Why, of course! Zip in the front! That’s part of the trick.

    Said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love the use of lace on this one.
