Description

I recently made this dress using the orange and gray stripes fabric I bought here in Japan. The thickness of the stripes was perfect! I cut the bodice on bias to create the fake chevron stripes effect.
I wrote some tips on how to make this on my blog.

    I love the square neck line and the pleats instead of darts in the bodice. Great dress!

    A very lovely dress and so beautifully sewn. The chevron effect in the front bodice is such a lovely idea. Well done.
