Drape Me Tunic

Added Feb 27, 2014

by liaifen

Brooklyn, New Yo...






This is based on the One-piece Side Drape Top from Hisako Sato’s book, Drape Drape 2.

I used a cheap polyester knit for my first foray into the Drape Drape patterns. Unfortunately, what could have been a very fast, simple project became an exercise in fabric destruction. With every stitch I had to rip out, I found myself making irreparable holes into the fabric. Luckily, this was in black and my mistakes were not as noticeable as they could be with another color.

I do love this simple pattern though, and the polyester fabric doesn’t wrinkle so it would be a nice piece to pack on vacation! Looking forward to the warm weather so I can wear this… if it ever comes back to New York!

    This is gorgeous and you have styled it so well. This does not look easy at all . Where does the seam go? I would love to try some of these drapes from the books as they look fabulous x

      Thank you so very much, Mary Athey! It’s just a one-piece pattern – the seam is on the straight side of the top. The drapey side is the where the pattern piece is folded in half. Ta da! Very fun :)

    It is stunning! It doesn’t look easy to make at all, but if it is I guess it’s a win-win.

      Thank you, Novisan! Amazingly, it’s a one-piece pattern. The tricky part for me was finishing the neckline and armholes with this fabric. I probably should’ve used the tissue paper trick for this one!

    love it! I also want to drape some from her book. I traced the patterns, many of them but never get to work on them. black polyester is actually the best choice, well I think. I like your hair style and shoes also….because they look so similar to my shoes..and your bangs….mine bangs are cut the same, only I can’t rock it like you do..

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Ada Looop! I can’t wait to try other patterns from the drape drape books. Also been eyeing the pattern magic pieces as well, but need to gather a little more courage first!
