A babydoll dress is as fun to sew as it is to wear. Mina puts a modern spin on this retro silhouette with two versions to match your style.

Version 1 is a relaxed top with a gathered peplum, pleated waist detail, and 3/4-length sleeves. Version 2 is a babydoll dress with a gathered skirt that hits below the mid-thigh, pleated waist detail, and short sleeves.
