Dd10_gdress_5_large

Description

This dress is number 10 tuck drape dress from Drape Drape book 1 (by Hisako Sato). I did reduce the armhole depth because the fabric I was using was narrow (it was a circular knit bolt). This is a very easy modification: I folded the paper pattern and then recurved the bottom hem. While I would wear this with a tank top underneath anyway, I also think this modification makes this dress not quite as weird. As in, the photos in the book are weird (in both photos, the model has her hand inside her dress – what?). I think this dress is playful and very comfortable. It could easily be made in drapey woven fabrics as well because the large armholes make it easy to get on without any closures. I will probably wear this in the colder months with a long-sleeve shirt underneath and the dress as a “jumper”. This dress is very simple to make and a fun addition to my wardrobe.
