Miranda Dress Pattern
Miranda is from Shakespeare’s The Tempest and lives in exile with her rather domineering father, Prospero. Consequently, she can be perceived as a bit naive. But she is guileless and honest and she has an innocent and empathic soul. She begs her father to have pity on the poor passengers of a storm-tossed ship.
And when love strikes true she stands up to her father and shows she has a brave heart and the spirit to follow it. She faces the world bravely, armed with her own courage and loving heart, finding wonder and joy.
Miranda is a character that induces hope and admiration. I fact her name means "that which must be admired' and we hope you'll be admired in your own versions of Miranda.
This dress makes up beautifully in a whole range of fabrics and the vertical princess seams allow for a better fit over the bust.
This dress is more fitted than our usual styles with a centre back zip. The princess seams allow for a better fit over the bust and continue down through the waist and into the skirt. Version 1 includes feature pockets across the side front panels and a notched neckline and cuffs. Version 2 is a simpler shape but just as pretty with a soft rounded back and streamlined skirt shape.
