Description

Made with a Japanese lawn from Spotlight. I purchased 2.5 meters to make this dress, as the collar tie is cut on the bias, and I used almost all of it, mostly because my crappy mistakes meant I had to cut the collar and both sleeves twice. Thank god I purchased more than I needed – something that I never normally do.

The dress was pretty much sewn as specified by the instructions, grading up at the waist for fit and adding in seam pockets for functionality. I was planning on making a belt to match, but I really like how this dress looks with my grey belt.

More sewing on my blog.

    It looks very good! I want to make something similar. And its quite often a good idea to buy more than you need ;)
