Description

Made of ivory cotton jersey, drafted from the Japanese pattern book “Pattern Magic 3” by Tomoko Nakamichi, this is the design on p18. I curved in the torso of the “long” version more to make it a bit more shapely. Love both views of this dress and plan to wear it either way. Sorry for the gazillion photos but they all show something a little bit different about this dress, and there is lots that is different!
I feel like a cross between a nun and a choirboy; but that pleases me…

    Wouaw this is very cool as well, and the red tights were a good idea too, where can I check out more of Tomoko Nakamichi stuff ?!

    You are imesurably COOL! This is amazing. I wanna do one now. That sort of thing would be perfect for our blistering summers. Oh. And the cat looks wonderful.

    Gorgeous! The curved in waistline adds a bit of sleekness to the design. (love how your beastie wanted in the shots too!)

      thank you! I recommend a really drape-y fabric… to be honest I’m toying with making this pattern in another more floppy and therefore more ideal fabric. Haven’t decided…
