I just finished this dress and I’m very happy right now. I made the pattern with the help of Tomoko Nakamichi"s Pattern Magic book. I think she is a wonderful pattern maker and I wish to know half of what she does.I used a brocade fabric I had for many years and never knew what to make out of it. I guess I was just waiting for this design. The front has an extra panel that built in to the skirt and twist trough an opening on the top part of the dress. The skirt is very tapered and I wanted to have the effect of not having any slit on it [this is why I hid it under the extra panel. Other than this, there is not much I can say. Lot of work on the pattern, but it’s so worth it. At least that is how I feel about it:))
