Linen Love

Dress from a japanese sewing book by Machiko Kayaki (“Sewing Talk”).

Wearable with a simple little underdress or with a T and pants.

I really love this one, it’s so very versatile and the linen makes it breezy and cool.

The japanese patterns run short and small comparing to “western” standard patterns or burda patterns. I love them, because I don’t need to alter anything, what I always need to do with our normal sewing patterns -

Material Notes

Lightweight green talian crinkle linen.

Lightweight fusible interfacing for the facings.

    amazon.jp IS a good source, and there is<a href=""http://imaginatorium.org/books/aj.htm&gt;at least this one tutorial out there on how to order there.

    but even more I like to hunt for those on evilbay, which is a great source for this stuff!

    hope this will help -

    This dress is adorable on its own, but even cuter with your hairstyle! I love it.
