The Miaka dress is cheeky and casual, held only by the tied knot on the left shoulder, it otherwise sits rather casually and comfortably. The elastic jersey stripe at the waist gives the dress good support and the wearer a slim silhouette. The top and bottom parts of the dress are simply stretched onto the narrow strip and sewn into place - done! With the length ending above the knee, you can show off your legs wonderfully.
Skirt length = 48 – 52 cm
In this pattern, Miaka was sewn from a light viscose and jersey.
We recommend a soft, flowing viscose fabric and cuffs/rib or jersey with elastane.
| 140 cm wide/
70 cm in the hose
Cut the pattern pieces from your outer fabrics. Lay the fabric open with the right side of the fabric facing up. The pattern pieces should all lie face up. Always align the thread arrow in the same direction on all pieces and parallel to the selvedge of the fabric. Transfer all the clippings from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Please note that sizes 42 – 46 require bust darts. What you need from fabric:
- 1x front part
- 1x back part
- 2x skirt part
You need cuffs/ribs:
- 1x waistband
To sew this dress you will need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, or alternatively the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to neaten the raw edges. Use a jersey needle or a fine sewing needle (70 gauge) to match your choice of fabric. In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn. When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specifically marked are 1cm wide!
Have fun sewing! It's best to start with the skirt part. Sew the side seams together, right sides together, and finish the seam allowances. The hem edge is neatened and ironed 2cm according to the pattern. Topstitch the hem at 1.7cm. Topstitched hem. Neaten the bottom edge of the receipt, which will later be folded inwards.
Please note that from size 42 onwards a dart is processed! To do this, place clips on clips and sew up to the tip of the dart, which is marked by a drill hole. Now fold the facing inward at the fold line on the front and back pieces, right sides together, and tuck the armhole and strap. Cut the seam allowance. This way it lays nicer when turned over. Stitch the facing seam of the armhole on the front and back pieces from the left side flat to the seam allowance (as far as possible). This is what the armhole with the quilting looks like from the inside. It is only visible there. Sew the side seams together with the inner facings (open), right sides together. Make sure the seams of the front and back armholes meet. Then neaten the seam allowances together. Sew and finish the side seam of the waistband, right sides together. Sew the waistband to the top with one side, right sides together. Pin the seam of the waistband to the side seam and the other clips to the VM, SN and HM. As you sew, stretch the waistband to fit the top. Finish the seam allowances together. The top is already attached to the waistband. Now all that's missing is the skirt part. Pin the skirt part back to the lower part of the waistband using the clips. Stretch the waistband to the appropriate length in the same way. Finish the seam allowances together. Finally, attach the facing to the inside of the seam allowances.
