a project i made using a fabric i bought 2 years ago. the pattern reminds me so much of Tsumori Chisato’s clothes for some reason, and being an admirer of her work, i thought i’d sew something dreamy & whimsical out of it.
it’s a printed sheer polyester chiffon, and i combined it with tulle for the back side. for the pattern, i used the Stylish Dress Book Vol. 2, U pattern. i didn’t make the sleeves nor the drawstring on the waist as how it’s “supposed to be” (see last pic). for the back shoulder part, i modified it so that it would be made half from the tulle fabric, and added 3 layers of scalloped edge tulle. i ran out of the fabric (classic mistake when i buy a piece of fabric without knowing what i’m gonna make :p), so for the cowl detail, instead of making it on the bias, i made it on straight grain. it worked okay for me. :)
PS. sorry for the bad quality pics!
around 1,5m of polyester chiffon,
50cm of tulle.
