This is pattern “K” in the Japanese sewing book Stylish Dress Book volume 1. Quite easy and quick and I love how it turned out, which is rare for me. It’s got a great billowy, loose fit that hits just above the hip. I used some kind of a vintage synthetic fabric with a drape to it (which I think is best for this pattern). I found it a few yards of it in a thrift store. Brown plastic buttons from the thrift store as well.
