Sew the Micah Dress

Fabric ideas and fitting details for this dress.

Posted in: Patterns • June 30, 2020

If you have a few yards of a fabric that you want to show off, meet Micah. This breezy, maxi-length dress has a deep v-neckline, seams at the center front and back, and a faced split hem. The easy silhouette is ideal for showing off prints, textures, and breezy fabrics.

Fabric & Fit

Fabrics to shop: Micah requires a fair amount of fabric, so you want to pick something lightweight. Look for wovens like batiste, lawn, voile, linen, rayon challis, cupro, lyocell, and silk.

Fabrics to avoid: Heavy wovens will be too restrictive for this dress, so avoid denim-weight fabrics. If you want the dress to drape nicely on your body, avoid quilting cotton.

Fit: There is generous ease in this dress, because it's designed for comfort. Read the finished garment chart closely before selecting your size. If you want to add a modesty panel to the deep v-neckline, don't miss the member bonus version.
