Drape Drape Dress - Black Matte Jersey

Added Nov 2, 2016

New York, United...






This is the first knit dress I’ve ever made, using pattern from Drape Drape 1 book by Hisako Sato. I chose a very slinky and stretchy jersey fabric, it is incredibly fluid and does not wrinkle at all. I think the fabric is perfect for the pattern but it was so tricky to work with. It moves out of place even if you only touch it a little bit. The pattern is huge so I had to lay everything on the ground and cut it out. It was so tough but I think it’s worth it. I had to take in the bodice sides a lot since the material is so stretchy. I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I’m a beginner at sewing so I felt very proud wearing it out. I’d definitely make another one in different color. I highly recommend Drape Drape book series. They’re all so elegant and fun; and if you choose nice fabric you can definitely make the design look very high end.

    What a wonderful dress, beautifully made. I’ll be on the lookout for the book, hopefully I can find it somewhere in Singapore.
