Savon Dress

Added Jul 23, 2010

Japan, Japan






The fabric is madras from India.
I modified my “I love vintage dress” for the top, and used about 2m x 80cm of fabric for skirt part which makes very rich gathering.
There are strap ribbons from side waist that you can tie at the back or front.

I want women to enjoy house work in this dress!

By the way, I am finally back here, and don’t know why I couldn’t sign in and do any activity for last couple of days… I contacted to Burda and they fixed my problem now!

Material Notes

madras, zipper




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Classic, Romantic, Vintage

    Hi Ophelia, I don’t love housework, but I love this dress.;-) It’s so cute! The bodice could be a nice blouse, too.

    I love it! It really would be a great house-dress to wear mid-week, to do she shopping or read a book/watch the kids at the park…

      Hello Karen, thank you for your comment! The craft fair was okay. I mean, I didn’t sell many of them, but some were picked and gone. Thank you for asking!

      haha, I guess that’s the reality. I know what i am imaging is more like only in a movie or drama.
