This is the No.10 Tuck drape dress from the first “Drape Drape” Japanese pattern book. Being in Japanese, I was a little apprehensive about this pattern but it turned out to be quite easy to sew because the illustrations are so clear.
I really like the drape sleeve detail on this dress. It’s also super comfortable, so I love wearing it and get lots of compliments when I do. I wear it with a singlet or bandeau underneath because it gapes a bit too much to do bra only. Being a bit of a sack shape, I was expecting to wear this with a belt, but I’ve found that it sits well on its own and doesn’t really need one.
The necklace is from Hoss Intropia which my sister bought for me when she was in Europe.
Cotton jersey for main body and linen blend with gold metallic flecks for straps and neckline.
