The pattern is from a Japanese pattern book called “Dress Made of My Favorite Cloth” by Machiko Kayaki (ISBN: 978 457 911 1909). I like it, however the fit isn’t quite right around my arms :( I should have made it a bit looser. Typically Japanese girls are so skinny and short that I usually can’t fit into anything that’s sold in retail, and I should have remembered that it’s a Japanese pattern book that I referred to :P
