Milan Dress

What kind of pattern is the Milan dress?

This chic summer dress sewing pattern showcases a sophisticated silhouette, making it an ideal choice for a variety of occasions.

The dress pattern features a scoop neckline, framed by delicate straps that highlight the shoulders feminine appeal. To flatter the silhouette of the body when creating this pattern we have chosen to make a central paneling both in front and back and has been completed with a waistline seam stitching which allows a better adaptation of the dress to the shape of the body. This structured fit ensures that the dress flatters the wearer, providing both comfort and style.

The back of the dress reveals a striking open-back design, adding a contemporary twist to the classic fit.

Flowing down from the waist, the dress transitions into a slightly flared A-line skirt that adds a touch of movement and grace. The skirt falls to a mini length, allowing for easy, carefree movement.

Perfect for both casual and semi-formal settings, this dress can be easily dressed up or down with the right fabric. A cotton or linen fabric paired with simple sandals and a sun hat for a chic daytime look, or a beautiful tweed or mikado fabric combined with elegant heels and statement jewelry for an evening out.

Overall, this mini dress pattern combines classic lines with nowdays elements, resulting in a piece that is both timeless and trendy.
