I’ve had this pattern book, ドレープ ドレープ (Drape Drape), for about a year now but had never made anything out of it. Most of the pattern in the book use knit fabrics, I guess I was a bit intimidated by it. But after making several clothes with knit fabrics (without serger), I found myself browsing the book again and decided to make one of the pattern.
This is pattern no.1, the loose drape top that I lengthened into a dress. The pattern is pretty straightforward, consisted of only two pieces with binding for finishing the armholes.
The fabric is double-gauze knit in stripes pattern, which accentuate the shape of the drapes. I wear the dress with black sleeveless top underneath. I wish I could wear it like the girl in the picture, but it wouldn’t be too practical for everyday use!
Pattern is loose drape top (lengthened) from ドレープ ドレープ (Drape Drape).
