Black Drapey done!

BlackDrapey4

Well, angels or no angels, I finally got my black Drape Drape dress done. I found it was a wee bit longer than I wanted it to be, so I gathered it up some more, and teamed it with a belt. Voila! Snazzy black drape drape dress in a length that suits me!

Project Details
Pattern:
No. 17 drape drape dress from Drape Drape Japanese pattern book
Fabric: 3m of Birdie Black Orbit, a viscose jersey blend from Tessuti Fabrics (yes, 3m does seem like a lot, but there is bucket loads of draping in this)

  1. Love it! You could wear this as a cocktail dress on a dinner date with your hubby. Or wear it in the day time with a cardigan and flats!

  2. Wow, that is so cute on you. I admire people who sew with the Japanese pattern books. I have Drape book 1, but so far have only looked at the picture!
