Mia dress copycat v2.0

I made this dress before and it was one of my favorites, but shrank it in the wash to the size of a tunic. Sad! I recently re-made it and now I want to make ten more backups! I used Simplicity 1873.

(Based on the Mia dress by Dear Creatures)

    This is so funny, I wanted to copy it, too! I was looking for a dress to wear for when my sailor husband comes back home and my size was sold out. Also I thought that the length of the original dress is a little bit too short for me to feel comfortable in. Thank you fro sewing it and sharing your experience :) It looks perfect!

      Thanks! Haha yeah seriously. I prewashed the fabric and am considering hand-washing anyway haha. I’m kind of glad that I had to remake it though, the lines came out way straighter the second time around :)
