My March Minerva Make – Michael Miller Mdress

March 22, 2016

This month for my Minerva Crafts Blogger Network project, I used some bee-yootiful fabric that I had been coveting for a while – Michael Miller Wing Song – to make a dress.


I combined the By Hand London Anna pattern with the Colette Patterns Peony, and gave it my own little twist.  It worked out pretty well!  If you’d like to read more about it, you can do so on Minerva’s site here.  In addition to me waffling on talking about the project in more detail, there are more photos, plus a bonus close-up of my crazy happy face if you make it to the end! 😉


Thanks to Minerva for providing me with the fabric, zip and thread for this project.

    Just gorgeous! I am in awe of your pattern matching at the back. Thinking this fabric would make a great mini dress for my daughter.

    This is lovely! Nice combination of patterns. I like the Anna skirt but can hardly ever be bothered with all those panels!! Lazy me! Very impressed by your pattern matching over the zip 👍🏻 X

      I know what you mean! I’ve used circle skirts and gathered skirts before with the Anna bodice, too.
