Description

Black draped dress using pattern no. 17 from ‘Drape Drape’ (a Japanese pattern book).

I found it was a wee bit longer than I wanted it to be, so I gathered it up some more, and teamed it with a belt. Voila! Snazzy black drape drape dress in a length that suits me!

You can check it out some more on my blog, Jorth!

Material Notes

3m of Birdie Black Orbit, a viscose jersey blend from Tessuti

    Love this look! Especially as it would be equally as chic worn under a long blazer as daywear as it would with statement heels for after-5. Five stars.

    Nice one, I love the drape top and have often thought of making it longer for a dress… I’m convinced now. Nice fabric choice too <3
