The fabric was bought in Okadaya, a fabric store in Shinjuku, and I thought it would be perfect for another dress. The base pattern is still from a Japanese pattern book, but I changed the sleeves and added some pleats and handstitches details on the sleeves and chest. I think it’ll look good worn with some belt too.
I did this one slowly, enjoying the process of making it. This little thing makes me happy.
