Added Mar 27, 2008
Based on a pattern from the “Sewing talk” book by Machiko Kayaki with some tiny adjustments. The neckline was not very flattering so I cut it a bit lower. Only it turned out a bit loose so I had the idea of making the small gathering in front. It turned really nice this way. And I made the dress a bit longer than the original pattern, so it’s just below knee length.
