This Blue Mila is in fact my second attempt with the pattern. Mila the First is presented at the bottom of the post.
You do know how much I love an easy pattern - and no offence Mila, but you are pretty easy! No zips, buttons etc, just a simple pull over dress with some unique features. As you can see Mila has a seam down the centre front and back skirt - only the bodice has side seams. And she's cocoon shaped. Love me a good cocoon.
Blue Mila is made of midnight blue crepe from The Sweet Mercerie paired with this beautiful and slightly sheer poly/cotton blend from Miss Matatabi
I also made a new coatigan. Version 117 or something like that. Not that I'm stopping now, nononono. This little number with 3/4 length sleeves is fully lined (with the sweetest pin dot fabric) and has oversize patch pockets. For some reason we are not besties and I might have to let this one go. Maybe it's the lenght on me that I'm not too thrilled about. Dunno. Love the fabric though.
And finally Mila the First - a crepe/scuba combo. This one is a size larger than the blue and a little too roomy for me to be honest, but I can't bear to part with her. I also made the blue one a little longer than the First.
Now off to make a million more Mila's.
