I should be packing by now because we’re going for summer vacation the day after tomorrow. And I should be folding my dresses neatly to be put in the luggage instead of making a new one. But yeah, I just… can’t… resist…..

But how could you resist this lovely fabric from Kokka? The fabric is called Girly & Bitter, designed by Asuka for Nina’s sewing factory line. It has birds, buttons, scissors, bunnies, stars, candies, mushrooms, girls, basically every pretty things on it.

All made up and nowhere to go

This dress is made without pattern, it’s simply smaller rectangles for bodice and bigger ones for the skirt. I sewed a row of ruffles on top of the bodice and also two pairs of loops so I can put detachable straps on it.

The back of the bodice has several rows of shirring to ensure the fit, and the front has four different buttons. I found those pretty buttons in an equally pretty store called ‘Miyake & Jubilee’ in Kichijoji.

I can always wear the dress as a tube dress, but I prefer wearing it with these brown straps that I already have. Believe me, if you have an active first-grader boy around, a strapless dress is not a wise choice.
Now I’m going back to packing!

PS:
Those identical dresses on the wall are for my shop, which will be updated after we got back from vacation. I should have taken them down before the photo, but they look pretty there.
