You guys, I’m so excited to share this dress.
I was drooling over the new fall stuff from Dear Creatures and in the midst of trying to convince my bank account that I should totally buy one of each thing when I realized that the construction of the Mia dress didn’t actually look that complicated. Not only that, I was pretty sure I could pull it off using Simplicity 1873, which I had coincidentally just bought.
Anyway, I traipsed over to the fabric store, crossing my fingers that they would have any kind of thick knit fabric and they just happened to have a ton of this gorgeous navy blue. It was just stretchy enough that I didn’t need a zipper which is always a plus. For the white detailing I just used some double fold bias tape.
I love everything about how this turned out! I’m pretty sure this is my favorite non-costume/non-historical garment I’ve ever made.
So of course I had to wear it with my new favorite shoes.
