Simple dress in 60's style

Added Mar 20, 2017

by Fumiko Honjo

Osaka, Japan






Last year, I’ve got about 1.3 meters wool fabric at auction.
It was scant, but it looked barely enough to make something.

Then I’ve desided to made a dress in 60’s style like Jacqueline Kennedy.
This time, I picked up a simple design dress from old SOEN in 1968, and added some original idea on it.
It’ll go with a classical chain bag like CHANEL.

SOEN is one of the oldest sewing magazine of Japan since 1936, but unfortunately it has lost contents about sewing around 2000.

    This is my first project for BurdaStyle. At first, I was not confident in communicating with my handmade dress in English. But everyone’s messages encouraged me very much. Thank you (^^)!
