my mila dress

i was very excited when i saw this pattern uploaded to burda a couple weeks ago. i went to a copy shop to print out the pattern, but they shrunk the pattern for 10% to fit the paper by mistake! they gave me a discount, so i took it.. and cut out size 36. so im not really sure what size this dress is now.

i really like this pattern, and i like the flower fabric i found for bottom part. i think im going to make one more of this! next time, i will probably omit the inner facing, just because i would like wearing different color camisole or turtleneck in the winter, instead of having a sawn in facing.

Material Notes

stretch cotton

    OH WOW! I now bought this beautiful floral black and white fabric … has a lovely oriental look… to make a kimono when i realised that it would look more like pillow material if i did! :-( SO when i saw this and i can mix and match another material into the mix like u did with the black and the white… it wont look like im using furniture material!!! HA hA ha :-)

    Your dress looks amazing! tear im excited to sew now!

    I fell in love with this pattern immediately too. Your creation looks perfect. It suits you so well! Very classic look. Now I’m longing for my own Milas dress even more…

    It’s beautiful! And I think your story about the copy shop who shrank your pattern is quite funny!
