Description

I used a pattern from the japonese magazine Poche n°8 : simple and quick but the pattern is very basic, for a next time I’ll use it but with some changes.

      Thanks Sewenee ! I found mine in a japonese library, it’s in japonese of course but the drawings are clear enough to understand the pattern. They started to translate japoneses sewing books and magazines (including this one) in french and it’s a uge success here, so maybe be some american editor is doing the same in the US ?

      Thanks Mary ! I’m not mad about this magazine because it’s really japonese style : very large, not a lot of constructions details… The kind of stuff that looks amazing on my really thin friends but not on me. But sometimes there is an exception.

      It’s in french but if you want there is a french community blog about japonses books, On this link you can see all the patterns frome this magazine (Pochée n°8) that they sew :

    I love it, and it looks really good on you. Seems like a nice and comfy dress. I especially like the details on the neckline.
