The LILA dress along with all ATELIER MIMITO patterns, were designed for your child to grow
into so you don’t have to change their wardrobe every few months, however I do offer multiple
sizes as every child is different.
This pattern and tutorial allow you to create a top and a midi lenght dress with bias tape finishes
and gathering at the top for a maximum swirl effect.
From lightweight to mid-weight linen, silk, cotton twill or a soft cotton shirting .
You may also want to use a combination of two different fabric with a sheer fabric for the upper
layer such as organza or an embroidered tulle and a lining such as cotton voile, silk/satin, crepe,
any soft, natural woven fabrics with a good drape.
If you are not sure which fabric to use, look up the hashtag #lilamimito on Instagram for

- One button
- Elastic cord
- 2m x 2cm Bias tape pre-folded (you can make your own)
