Two dresses drafted using patterns from Clothing for Everyday Wear by Yoshiko Tsukiori . One is pure linen, the other one is cotton. I wanted dresses that one could wear in the garden, get dirty in, then throw in the wash.
I I always remeasure and “redraft” japanese patterns because they are designed for a loose fit (sometimes, even on a North American, that means HUGE!) but to short or too narrow a collar.
But once you start using those patterns, you can’t stop: it’s so easy!
Pure linen, cotton.
