This is my ‘reward dress’ for completing my Japanese sewing books challenge.
I chose the dress pattern that got me interested in Japanese Sewing Books in the first place, a scarf dress featured on the cover of ‘Les couleurs francaises’. I used my precious Echino Grassy Plain fabric which I thought was so appropriate for the design. The fabric was in my untouchable stash but I am glad it has turned into this dress!
The original design had a tie scarf collar. To make the most of this outfit, I decided to make some modifications and made the collar and scarf separately. I drafted a collar that would look hidden when I wanted to wear it with the scarf.
