Size Chart:

This pattern is designed to fit children of the sizes given in the chart below. Please measure your child to find their current size for a perfect fit. Lana Top & Dress - By Sansahash for sizes 6m through 12Y Girls - I just love those sleeves and the ruffle detailed. Must have for all seasons!

Materials Required:

Recommended Fabrics:

– 4-way stretch knit fabric with at least a 50% stretch but no more than 75% stretch. Recommended is a blend of at least 5% spandex/ lycra for good recovery. Avoid lightweight spandex/lycra and loose knits (they tend to stretch and sag and do not have a good recovery).  Ex: Cotton/Spandex, Double Brushed Poly,  French Terry, etc.

V-back Option: Fabric such as Cotton Voile, 100% Rayon, Eyelet, Gingham  to name a few can give a good drape.


Mila is a 60’s vintage inspired drop waist dress with gathered or pleated skirt option.  The pattern is meant to be loose-fitting, which is extra comfortable to wear for your child especially for the ones with toddler belly. The dress includes a V-back as an option that can be made in woven. This dress is perfect for pairing with knee socks and tennis shoes for a more casual, everyday look.  Or, you can dress it up with a cardigan and ballet flats for a special outing.  Either way, your little girl will be comfortable and in style wearing Mila.

    I love the pleats, and better yet, I love how fast it comes together. Very stylish. My daughter (2.5 yrs old) has asked for a bunch more!
