Buy the Millie Dress and Top sewing pattern from Bobbins and Buttons. Millie is a knee-length shift dress with wide straps and a fitted band above the bust. It is loose around the waist with an A-line silhouette. Large curved patch pockets are sewn into the side seams. The dress is fastened at the back with an invisible zip. The top is a shortened version of the dress. It has side vents and is finished with a hem facing that can be stitched internally or externally. You can also make a tiered maxi dress with a gathered upper bodice, fitted to the same band as the other styles, and three gathered tiers.
