Florals: last batch

I’ve finally consumed all my floral fabrics! I put all the fabrics in a big cardboard box and the box is finally empty now. I’ve never made so many stuff within such a short time, and actually enjoyed this whole month making all of them. It felt strangely sad to look into that empty box. But of course now all the fabrics have transformed into these clothes that are now covering my wall. I guess I have enough of florals now! This grey and white floral are swiss dot cotton fabrics with nice dotted texture all over it. I made them […]

More florals!

These are some stuff that I made last week. All fabrics are cotton in various floral pattern. I made another ruffled collar dress.

Floral dresses (and second take on Tara dress)

I found these pretty floral fabric when going shopping to Asakusabashi with Chie and Kayo the other day. The fabrics are cotton with embroidered border on one side. I love how comfortable the fabrics felt on my hand. I used one of the fabric to make another try on the Tara pattern. No alteration other than making the sleeves double layered with raw edges shown.  It was finished pretty quick and I made no mistake this time! The finished dress is rather lingerie-looking, I guess it’s due to the shape and embroideries. But I think it looks pretty cute. The […]
