Description

This is a tunic/dress from the Japanese magazine Pochee. I loved the unfussy design and the different ways this can be worn – layered over a pair of boyfriends, over a longer dress or slip dress or skirt, belted or loose, 3/4 lenght sleeves rolled up or down, with long sleeves underneath or just a little lacy number in summer…

Don’t be afraid to use Japanese patterns bought over the net as they all seem to come with drawn instructions which are just really straightforward, especially if you have made a dress (trousers, skirt etc) before. Before cutting do check the length of the garment works for you. I am not especially tall (just under 5’7) but I do need to lengthen Japanese dress patterns to suit my frame. If you are petite, you will especially love Japanese patterns!

You can find copies of Pochee and lots of fabulous Japanese sewing books on Etsy.
