Basically I used the same pattern as this dress and made some changes with skirt, shortened and gathered it. I know the fabric is absolutely not for dresses but for wallpapers or interior decorations. but when I saw this fabric at a huge fabric store in Tokyo, I felt that I had to make a dress with it and it was so fun to make a dress with an unorthodox fabric and much more fun to wear it :)

Material Notes

woven wallpaper fabric, polyester lining and zipper


Garment Type

    I love this print! Looks fab Darl – possibly a contender for my favourite of all the dresses you have been “pumping out” lately! I envy your wonderful level of production! x

    Your “unorthodox” fabric is what renders a simple fitted dress unique and innovative. Good for you!
