I made a dress today

My new dress!

Here’s a glimpse of a dress I made today! The pattern is dress N from 大人のクチュール毎日着たいワンピース、ブラウス、パンツ…―Stylish Dress Book 3, the newest of the Stylish Dress Book series. Yes, number 3 has just been published and since there’s already Stylish Dress Book 1 and 2 in my book shelves, I couldn’t resist buying the number 3. Things that come in series are my weakness.

Anyway, I love this new dress. It has ruffled sleeves and a pair of pockets and the fabric is perfect for spring. Unfortunately, the sun is not my friend today so I couldn’t take proper pictures. More pictures of the dress tomorrow!

    Do these books come written in English?

      Hi Gail, the books are only available in Japanese.
      But I don’t read Japanese, the drawings and diagrams are easy enough to understand.

    I can’t wait to see the full pics! This is so pretty. I’ve seen such lovely things online made from Japanese craft books, but I’ve never had one myself. This dress is such an encouragement to keep my eye out!

    I love it! I love it even if it’s only half of the dress!
    Can I ask you where you got that lovely fabric if you don’t mind?
    Your dresses are always really nice. I might get the books as well but I’m sure I won’t be able to make anything properly…
