Description

After seeing BStyle member Iroiro’s magnificent dress from the Japanese book Pattern Magic, I was convinced to take on the challenge. Creating the pattern from the illustrations wasn’t too difficult so hope to approach a few more patterns from this amazing book. For this dress I added pintucks at the front bodice along with self covered buttons with loop enclosures, cap sleeves and a ruffled skirt with pockets. I also lined the bodice. It’s a lovely dress which I’ve also made in a lightweight linen, will get a lot of wear this season.

    You’ve done a wonderful job with this dress Honey! Those pin tucks are perfection and you look lovely.

    I really love the covered buttons and the loops as well. Oh those Japanese dressmaking/pattern books – I adore them! xxx

    Great dress. I’ve been lusting after the Pattern Magic creations as well. I love your addition of the loop-button placket. And the drape of that fabric looks luscious. Well done.

      Thanks, I always opt for buttons rather than zips, my pet hate!
