Vintage Modern Design Challenge slip-on japanese dress

Added Mar 8, 2012

Milano, Italy






I used the slip-on jumper dress free pattern because i wanted a comfortable tunic dress but with a more feminine twist.
So i cut the pattern on the waist line and added two big soft pleats in the front to have something like a bow on the neckline; I also changed the sleeves into a little prominent shoulder.

Material Notes

100% cotton with japanese print from Nunoya
solid black cotton lining and black gros-grain belt

    This is truly lovely. I love the neck and sleeve detail. And the fabric, as has been stated, is fabulous. It looks wonderfully vintage in a way that compliments the dress design very nicely.

      Thank you! i’ve bought the fabric at a fair here in Milan, but they told me about their online shop. Check the link in the material notes. Enjoy!
