Description

Feeling inspired, I ordered the Stylish Dress Book 1 and made this dress the day it arrived! I chose pattern E as it was really simple and looked adorable. Considering it is my first proper go, I think it is not too bad and was quick and easy to make. Such a lovely book!

    I made a blend of E and M for my first Japanese pattern…. it’s a lovely dress to wear, and yours is lovely too!

    I bought a batik dress for $2 and I wear it constantly. Sometimes simple is best! I love the ankh pattern.
