Brown Dress with Pockets

Added Nov 11, 2008

Marathon, Greece






I shortened the original design to below-knee lenght instead of ankle-length. just because I rarely wear maxi dresses. I used thick collar interfacing to make the collar stand the way it should.
What I love in this dress: it’s cozy, the collar (I have a collar fetish what can I say?), the fabric is no nice and drapey and soft, the pockets (woo-hoo), the fact that you can wear this summer and winter too, with limitless possibilities of matching t-shirts, pullovers, knits, socks etc. and it goes well with almost ALL my shoes. Now, what about that.

Material Notes

wool/cotton fabric, 30cm zipper, medium to thick interfacing





japanese book “Dresses with straight stitches” with ISBN 4309280196

    oh another japanese couture addict. Nice dress! It has the typical fun and cosy character of japanese patterns.
