Description

I shortened the length and the sleeves, put gathers in the back waist, and shaped the sides significantly. I still had to wear it with a belt when I was done because it looked like a muu-muu on me.

Material Notes

Nani Iro double gauze.

    I love this! I seen so many great dresses on here from this book- may have to find a copy. Is it hard to figure out the patterns just from the pictures?

      The illustrations are very easy to follow if you already know the basics of pattern construction. You just have to remember to convert from cm to inches, if needed, as well as add in the seam allowance to the patterns.

    I don’t believe there is an English version. It is called “Stylish Dress Book” (ISBN 978-4-57911185-5). There are three of these books- this pattern is from the first one. Added pic of dress up close, plus pattern picture.

    It looks great – is that the name of this pattern book? I love your fabric and I really love your shoes too :-)
