Dress #2 from Japanese sewing book Drape Drape 2. I used 1.5m of a stretch viscose knit called “Jelly Orbit” from Tessuti Fabrics
Truly, it is amazing that I haven’t had a photo taken of this dress before now because I wear it all the blooming time! It’s so comfy, but I always feel quite snazzy and dressed up in it. Can’t really ask too much more from a summer frock!
As for making it up, it was a cinch. I was a wee bit nervous beforehand, as the book and all the instructions are in Japanese, but the step-by-step diagrams were so clear and obvious that I had no trouble at all. If you can sew, you can definitely make up a Japanese pattern. I think this dress took me all of, say, two hours. Not too shabby!
You can check it out more on my blog, Jorth!
