Bonsai Dress

Added Apr 19, 2010

by Ophelia K

Japan, Japan






Bonzai dress is the one I recently made.
As its length is pretty short, I tried to hide back and cleavage line to avoid being like a hooker. I mean the fabric is very traditional Japanese design, and thought it’s better to keep the nice conservative impression.

    I LOVE this fabric!! I only wish I could get my hands on some. _ The dress is darling. I really like the neckline paired with the short length. Is it a pattern?

    So cute! It’s like that rule they always say you should follow – show off your legs, hide your chest, show off your cleavage, hide your legs! Anyway, I really like the dress, it’s just the kind of thing I would wear :)

      Thanks Dannii. I am not good at English yet though:(

      I am jealous that you started sewing at your age! I started in this January.
      Let’s get better;)

      Your English is good!

      I am teaching myself and I don’t have much time to sew so it will be a while before I am good! :). Your projects are amazing!
